ESA Teachers’ Summer Workshop 2015

on 22 December 2014

Update 13 July 2015: From 8 to 10 July, more than 100 primary and secondary school teachers from 18 ESA Member States took part in the ESA Summer Teachers Workshop at ESA’s Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, the Netherlands.

Top level space experts, such as ESA astronaut André Kuipers, Rosetta Project Scientist Matt Taylor, award-winning solar astrophysicist Pål Brekke, and ESA Copernicus Space Segment Manager Guido Levrini gave teachers unprecedented access to inside information from the people directly involved in the various space projects.

ESA is organising the 6th Teachers’ Summer Workshop at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC), the Netherlands, from 8 to 10 July 2015. Subscriptions will open in February 2015 to both primary and secondary school teachers.

The workshop will include practical sessions, inspirational talks and classroom material that teachers can use in teaching Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)

curricula using space as a fascinating teaching and learning context. Space topics will range from gravity, light, comets, asteroids and the history of the Solar System, to the study of planet Earth.

Further details about the workshop will be released by ESA in February 2015.
