Teach with Jupiter educational webpage now online

on 09 April 2021

The Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) invites teachers to visit the educational website Teach with Jupiter, created by the European Space Agency (ESA).

Teach with Jupiter is an educational page, which hosts a variety of curricular resources using Jupiter and the Solar System as the learning context.

Educators can use the Teach with Jupiter resources in and outside the classroom to engage primary and secondary students in STEM subjects by building on their natural curiosity for space and the exploration of the Solar System in particular.

Teach with Jupiter compiles existing classroom resources on the Solar System, the orbits of planets, and extra-terrestrial life for primary and secondary levels, with more targeted resources to be added in the future. Teachers will also find a rich multimedia library on the topic of Jupiter and the Juice mission in particular, including a 3D rendering of the unique spacecraft.

Among the activities recently launched is the Juice Up Your Rocket! Art competition that challenges kids up to 12 years old to help ESA create an illustration to decorate the huge Ariane 5 rocket that will launch the spacecraft on its long journey towards planet Jupiter. The competition will be open until 1 June 2021, 23:59 (CEST).
