This first MOOC of the Space Awareness series will equip participants with the skills needed to leverage effectively the potential of space sciences for education. Three practical online courses will follow and introduce major space topics related to many Space Awareness resources:
· Our Fragile Planet will take participants through basic notions of our planet Earth like its structure and atmosphere and will delve into issues concerning climate change.
· Our Wonderful Universe will introduce numerous astronomical objects and explore the Solar System and deep space exploration.
· Navigation through the Ages will present the rich history of navigation, introduce concepts, tools, and terms essential to determine one’s location and the basics of how satellite navigation works, focusing on Galileo Europe’s navigation satellite system.
