Teacher Training

Come to ESAC to learn more about European Space Agency and space science.

Introduction

CESAR organises training courses for primary and secondary school teachers together with the "Centro Territorial de Innovación y Formación" (CTIF) of the Regional Ministry of Education of the Madrid region. For a period of four days, from 17:00 to 20:00, ESAC scientists and engineers working on ESA missions present scientific and technical topics related to astrophysics and space exploration to a total of 65 teachers of the Madrid area. After the training course, teachers are evaluated in order to obtain an official certificate, which is valid within the frame-work of mandatory teacher training in Madrid. In 2017 we are also planning to transmit the courses online for teachers in the other provinces of Spain, in order to reach hundreds pf school teachers with each course. Hopefully in the future the aim is to offer this type of training course to teachers in all ESA member states.
