Space Champions launch online sessions
Space Champions, supported by ESERO-UK and the UK Space Agency, are now delivering online sessions for teachers and technicians; using space as a context in teaching with space-themed experiments and linking to featured resources.
Regional deliverers of space-related training have launched workshops exploring how to use space as a context in teaching, the different ESA education programmes on offer and how to get recognition through the Space Education Quality Mark. They will guide educators through the resources and tools available and how to run space-related experiments for students.
