ROSA invites Romanian secondary school teachers to take part in the summer workshop organised by the European Space Agency

on 16 March 2014

The Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) invites secondary school teachers to take part in the summer workshop organised by the European Space Agency (ESA) between 21-25 July 2014 at its European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC), Noordwijk, the Netherlands.

The workshop is open to teachers of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics related subjects in secondary schools (students 12 – 18 years old) of ESA Member States and priority will be given to teachers who have not participated in previous ESA teacher workshops. The language of the workshop will be English.

During this workshop participants will be presented with innovative ways in which space can be used as an engaging context for teaching core topics in STEM subjects. Participants will find out more about ESA Education activities and resources, as well as current ESA missions, such as Rosetta – Europe’s comet chaser, and the Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) that transports cargo to the International Space Station.

Teachers wishing to participate in the workshop should complete the online application form before 25 April 2014 13:00 local time.

There is no fee to participate in the workshop. ESA will arrange and sponsor the costs of hotel accommodation, local transport, lunch and refreshments for all selected participants during the workshop, as well as one social dinner, but participants are expected to cover the costs of their travel to and from the Netherlands and the cost of evening meals, with the exception of the social dinner.

Further information on the ESA’s summer workshop is available on the ESA website.
