The educational materials, made available online under a free licence, are a compendium for anyone interested in the life and legacy of the author of “Solaris.”
The National Centre is making the exhibition available free of charge in the form of downloadable/printed files until June 2022. In addition, parents, socio-cultural animators, educators and parents can find and use a number of teaching materials and original activity scenarios on the life and works of Stanisław Lem, which have also been made available.
