ESA Summer Teachers Workshop 2015

Applicaton Deadline: April 26, 2015

This year ESA is organising another unique workshop dedicated to school teachers. The workshop will include an outstanding three-day programme, as well as a visit to one of ESA’s establishments. The deadline for application is Sunday 26th April 2015.

The workshop will take place from 8 to 10 July 2015 at ESA’s European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, the Netherlands. It will be open to both primary and secondary school teachers of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects residing and working in ESA Member and Cooperating States.

The space themes that will be covered during the workshop are:

– Gravity
– Rosetta, comets and the Solar System
– Planet Earth
– Light
– Space exploration and human spaceflight

Articulated around these themes, the workshop programme is aimed at providing an inspirational professional development opportunity. It will feature key note speeches from top-level space experts, as well as practical sessions demonstrating how space can be used when teaching and learning STEM subjects.

Due to the increasing interest demonstrated by teachers in our previous editions, the number of participants this year has been increased to 120.
