Radio Astronomy is the theme for the ESERO Ireland primary school Science Week resources. How do radio waves form? Where do radio waves come from in space? How do we detect these radio waves? Does human activity interfere with these waves?

The Science Week Space themed Primary Classroom Resource is called Radio Astronomy.  In it we show you how to Make a Simple Radio and a Model Radio Dish with your students.

Teachers you can attend Primary Teacher CPD workshops to help you use the Radio Astronomy resource in your classrooms. Explore the world of radio astronomy in this hands-on workshop at MTU Blackrock Castle Observatory.
