We decided to bring back our course Astronomy@myBackPack with a new flavour. We are mixing science and arts with innovative and inclusive methods for learning. The course will introduce the participants to a series of interesting hands-on tools and resources to bring astronomy and space exploration to the classroom.
The course will include activities performed with daily materials (Solar System distances, phases and seasons in celestial bodies, constellations and more). It will also include a series of interesting digital tools to spice up the delivery of curriculum content such as: planetarium software, graphic design tools, image processing software and more.
Dates: July 19th to July 24th | Venue: Tenerife, Spain (Optional extension to July 25th | La Palma)
Once again NUCLIO and IAC (Instituto de Astrofísica de Canárias) join hands to promote another unforgettable Education Adventure in the Canary Islands. This year’s main theme will be Exoplanets. Do you think you can involve your students in real research experiences? Could you or one of your students discover a new planet around another star? Well, the answer is yes and it is not as hard as you think. By introducing innovative learning methodologies, you will be able to deliver curriculum content while bringing research and space exploration much closer to their reality.
Date: Sept 6th to Sept 11th | Venue: Bergen, Norway
