COSPAR PE.1: Space Explorers in Schools – Empowering the Next Generation of Researchers

COSPAR 2024 PE.1 aims to bridge the gap between educators and researchers in the field of space exploration. COSPAR is the perfect stage to enable these interactions and bring both worlds, education, and research, closer together in a mutually beneficial relationship.

PE.1 will take place from July 16 to July 19. A series of training events will be offered to the participants supported and implemented by researchers in the field of space exploration and education.

These training events, organized by the COSPAR Panel on Education with support from Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute, are especially devoted to the exchange of best practices for STEAM education with a focus on Space Exploration in schools
