The Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) invites secondary school teachers to apply to the technology and robotics workshops that will take place at the e-Technology Lab at the ESA Education Training Centre, located in Belgium, in October, November and December 2018.

During the 2.5-day workshops, teachers will learn how to use space robotics as well as automation (Arduino) in the context of curricular subjects such as physics and technology, and will discover and master new tools and inquiry-based practices for STEM teaching and learning at school.

Inspired by real ESA space missions, teachers will learn about the different kinds of expertise and skills necessary to make a space project successful.

Teachers wishing to participate should fill in the relevant application form.

The deadlines to submit applications are:

ESA reserves the right to close the application window earlier than the given deadline if a sufficient number of quality applications are received. In such case, an announcement will be posted on the ESA Education Facebook page.

The workshops will take place at the ESA Education Training Centre at ESEC-Galaxia, located in Transinne, Belgium.

ESA will cover the travel expenses up to a maximum of 200 euros per teacher, and will organise and cover the costs for accommodation, catering, and local transportation.
