The idea of the “Our Fragile Planet” online course is to empower teachers to teach space- and astronomy-related topics to their students.
In this course, participants will learn and practice with engaging educational activities about topics such as the weather, climate and the Earth. Teachers will learn how to strengthen social responsibility in relation to climate change as well as how to raise awareness about different space careers. Furthermore, the course will address questions of diversity and gender balance related to space sciences.
The course capitalises on pedagogical pillars such as inquiry-based science education, ICT tools, managing diversity in the classroom, maintaining gender balance in the classroom and thematic space careers.All Events
