With a new exhibition, a set of educational activities and outreach events, spaceEU’s innovative and participatory outreach and education programme will be implemented in ten European countries: Austria, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal and Spain.
Step in to space
Step into Space is an exciting new touring exhibition developed by Ars Electronica that brings together space sciences and art to inspire youths and their families.
Thousands of discoveries have been made in space that we now use in our everyday lives. Space exploration allowed us to innovate in health care, energy and the environment, everyday technology, and many other areas. It assists us in thinking about how to collaborate to protect our planet, and it continues to inspire us to think outside the box. The achievements of space science have shown us that we can make the impossible possible. Curiosity and exploration are vital to the human spirit and so we invite you to join us on a journey of discovery through this exhibition. We want to share the story of space and your part in it.
& outreach activities
Through STEAM approaches and a special focus on girls and underserved communities, spaceEU’s educational and activities engage citizens with space science and careers.
spaceEU educational activities put forward “spaceEU Lab”, an innovative, interdisciplinary and practise-based learning methodology for space education inside and outside the classroom. Activities include Space in the Classroom, where professionals from the space sector will visit schools, and space4youth, a small youth conference where young people will present their knowledge, projects and views about space exploration. SpaceEU engagement activities will also promote dialogue between space stakeholders and young people, parents and society-at-large through three participatory formats: Citizen Space Debate, which brings together space stakeholders and citizens for an open discussion on controversial topics; Space Unconference, where participants co-create the programme of a space conference; and Space Café, a short and informal talk presenting a current topics of space research, innovation, policy or design.
