I touch future… I teach.
Christa McAuliffe (A Teacher, An Astronaut)
Enjoy a fantastic time in the heart of the Alps and participate in the Science Workshop hosted by the Austrian Space Forum.
The focus of this science workshop is LaSciL – Large Scientific Infrastructures enriching online and digital Learning – an Erasmus+ project supporting high quality science education. After a very long time, we hope to be able to organize a face-to-face course, with the opportunity to visit the Space Suit Laboratory in Innsbruck, Austria.
The Austrian Space Forum is one of the leading institutions conducting Mars analog missions, thus paving the way for the future human exploration of the Red Planet. The Austrian Space Forum in collaboration with national and international institutions from science and industry is working at the cutting edge of scientific research. In addition, the Austrian Space Forum also contributes significantly to inspiring and educating young people in the sectors of science, technology, and engineering.
Find out what the LaSciL Erasmus+ project can offer you to make science education a memorable experience for young people.
What you will experience:
- Attend an event called “Train Like an Astronaut” and see if you can live up to that claim
- Visit the Space Suit Lab in Innsbruck, Austria
- See how to pull things together for talking your students into doing experiments
- How to arrange things so your students can peer through Faulkes telescopes.
LaSciL envisions to empower and support teachers to personalize their teaching practices based on the needs of their students.
Details about the program and invited trainers will be available in May 2022.
Who can apply?
The workshop is open to teachers of all grade levels and subject domains willing to dive into a real STEM experience (Science, Technology, Engineering, 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 suggestions etc. will become available in May 2022.
