For Space Week 2020, ESERO Ireland, CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory and Junior Cycle for Teachers, will bring you an online Space Career Roadshow in conjunction with Science Foundation Ireland, and space industry partners. This Space Careers event will provide students with an excellent opportunity to engage with space industry professionals, and third level institutions, so that they can get a taste of the exciting opportunities that a STEM career in the space sector has to offer.
Our roadshows showcase the incredible diversity of careers that are available in the space industry. Astronauts, scientists, engineers, artists, and countless other professionals will show you what their dream job entails, and the path you can take to follow in their footsteps.
Satellites Improve Life is the theme for World Space Week 2020 and this Careers Roadshow will take a special look at satellites in an Earth Observation context. What can we learn from satellite data, and how can it be used to tackle problems such as climate change?
