Date: October 2022
Venue: Madrid, Spain.
This course is organised in the framework of teacher training activities of the European School Innovation Academy.
The European Space Agency and the Galileo Teacher Training Program join hands again to bring cutting edge training opportunities to all interested teachers. This time we will have the opportunity to visit the Science Operations Centre of ESA in Madrid (Spain).
The European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC), ESA’s window to the Universe, welcomes teachers from all over the world. Meet the scientists, visit the facilities, and learn about the discoveries taking place there.
The program will include presentations by scientists, hands-on activities, digital tools, research activities, virtual visits to the facility and observing sessions with robotic telescopes. Details about the program and invited trainers will be available in June 2022.
The training is supported by the CESAR (Cooperation through Education in Science and Astronomy Research) team, the resident educational team at ESAC, and by a team from the IAC (Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias), the Faulkes Telescope Education Team, National Schools’ Observatory and NUCLIO (the coordinator of the Galileo Teacher Training Program).
Participants will have opportunities to network and to establish a series of research projects in partnership with their colleagues and the scientists supporting the training. Take part in this training course and go back to your school with a research project in your hands.
Who can apply?
The workshop is open to teachers of all grade levels and subject domains willing to dive into a real STEAM experience (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths). We believe that learning improves when students are embedded in interdisciplinary experiences and in environments that seamlessly integrate horizontal (across subject domains) and vertical (across different grade levels) articulation.
The working language will be English. Information about the venue, accommodation, transportation etc. will become available in June 2022.
