Every year, ESA gives some of its ESERO offices the unique opportunity
to gather primary and secondary school teachers, students, and space
scientists and engineers around an inflight call with an ESA astronaut
on board the ISS.
This year, local events are organised by ESERO Ireland, ESERO Romania
and ESERO Portugal. These events will take place in Limerick,
Timişoara, and Lisbon, respectively.
The inflight call with Thomas Pesquet is part of a vast range of
educational activities delivered by ESA and its European Space
Education Resource Office (ESERO) project. There are currently 10
operational ESERO Offices across Europe, covering 13 ESA Member
States. ESA’s ESERO project is a collaboration between ESA, national
space agencies, and educational partners.
ESEROs design and disseminate classroom resources – all tailored to
the national school curricula and language - which make use of space
to make teaching and learning of STEM subjects more appealing and
effective. In addition, they offer teacher training workshops and
conferences for both primary and secondary school teachers, and
support educational hands-on projects in the country. Through their
activities, ESEROs also raise awareness about STEM-related career
prospects, and promote the importance of space in our daily lives.
