The European Space Agency is organising a workshop for science teachers at the European Space Research and Technology Centre in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, from 11 to 14 July 2011.
The workshop will give secondary school science teachers practical skills to enhance their teaching of science subjects, and will present innovative and inspiring tools and methods that use space as a means for attracting students to science.
Teachers will participate in a programme of activities that will take them on a voyage through the solar system. They will look at how humans explore space, the science of the Sun, and the study of Earth from space.
The working language of the workshop will be English.
How to apply
A limited amount of financial support for travel cost is available to teachers from EU Member States. Accommodation will be organised and covered by the European Space Agency directly. There is no fee for the workshop.
Places are limited, and the deadline for applications is 5 June 2011.
