The ESERO Space Goes To School program brings real Space Industry professionals to your classroom via Skype, for FREE! Your students will have a chance to learn from these experts and to engage with them. We’ve had amazing speakers over the years, including BCO’s Astronaut Patron Dan Tani. This opportunity is brought to you with the support of ESERO Ireland.
Our most recent program ran to recognise the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, and saw us pair incredible women from the Space Industry with students from all over Ireland to talk about their jobs and career path.
Our program for International Women’s Day is fully booked, but speaker slots for Tech Week will be available shortly. Watch this space.
To give you a taste of the wonderful variety of volunteers who have participated in ESERO Space Goes To School, the program for Space Week 2019 is available below.
We’ll contact you to perform a test on your Skype connection ahead of your session. Please ensure that speakers are suited to your student level (Primary/Secondary) as we will have to cancel incompatible bookings.
These talks are designed to show students how varied the paths that lead to a STEM career in Space can be, and to assure them that they too can have an amazing career in this industry.
Speakers are available to book for 30 minute online slots allowing for student Q&A time. Please note – as these hook-ups will take place online (Via Skype) you will need a strong WiFi connection.
Speakers will be continuously added to the schedule, so please check back in a few days if you were unable to secure a speaker.
