Ideal for primary teachers who are interested in using space as an exciting context for learning, the annual ESERO-UK secondary space conference is being held alongside the UK Space Conference. Teachers will have the chance to hear from a careers panel from the space industry and take part in hands-on activities linked to the 50th anniversary of the first lunarlanding, ESA's ExoMars mission, and the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope. You will also get the chance to see the vast array of space organisations exhibiting at the UK Space Conference.
