About ESERO Ireland

ESERO Ireland promoting space as a resource for teachers

European Space Education Resource Office (ESERO) Ireland promotes space as a theme to inspire and engage young people in STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). Space is fascinating to people of all ages, it is all around us and inspires us in many different ways. Space is the ultimate cross-curricular theme cutting across history, geography, science, maths, literature,even religious education! ESERO Ireland makes space themed resources accessible to teachers as a tool to engage their pupils.

ESERO is an education project of the European Space Agency (ESA), co-funded by ESA and by national partners active in the fields of education and space. In Ireland, the national partner is Science Foundation Ireland.
