The ESA Teach with Space Conference features a three-day programme that will provide teachers with classroom activities and online tools that use space themes as an inspiring context for teaching and learning STEM. The conference will also feature keynote lectures from top-level space experts and a virtual tour of ESA’s ESTEC facilities. Participants will also have the opportunity to interact and network with their peers and space experts from across Europe.
Participants will explore space from three areas – technology, space exploration and Earth sciences – and learn how these can be integrated in the classroom to teach curricular topics. ESA experts will show the Earth from above and demonstrate how ESA’s Earth observation satellites are monitoring our planet. Participants will also learn about exoplanets, 3D design and programming as well as how to build a bionic hand and investigate how to produce rocket fuel from water, among other amazing activities.
