Open applications for the 2020 summer and autumn teacher ESA workshops

on 03 March 2020

The Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) invites teachers to apply for the summer and autumn teacher workshops, organised by the European Space Agency (ESA). The summer edition will take place from 7 to 10 July, and the autumn edition from 1 to 4 October. Both workshops take place in the Netherlands and are geared toward both primary and secondary STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) teachers. The application deadline for both workshops is 12 March 2020.

The workshops, identical in both summer and autumn editions, will feature keynote lectures from top-level space experts and visits to the ESA ESTEC facilities. Over the course of a four-day programme, participants will engage in practical training sessions that demonstrate how to use space in the classroom as an inspirational context.

Please note that priority will be given to teachers who have not participated in previous teacher workshops given by ESA.

There is no fee to participate in the workshop. ESA will arrange and sponsor the cost of hotel rooms for 4 nights, necessary local transport during the workshop, lunch and refreshments, as well as one social dinner. 

Participants are expected to cover the full cost of their travel to and from Leiden, the Netherlands, and the cost of evening meals, with the exception of the social dinner offered by ESA.
