Space Awareness

Space Awareness was an international project for children and teenagers, striving to increase their enthusiasm and knowledge of science and technology using the exciting possibilities of space, and inspiring them to pursue a career in relation to space subjects.

Along with its 26 partners in Europe and Africa, Space Awareness worked to provide free high quality tools to engage young people in science with space. Space Awareness offered a series of complementary activities and resources will also be to inspire children from 8 to 18 years old, primary and secondary school teachers, teacher trainers, science educators, and families. Visitors find a selection of educational resources about current and global topics, the latest stories about space discoveries and a series of online apps and games to play, learn, and participate in scientific research!

The project featured many planned activities for children and adults alike - activity kits for secondary education, space career stories and facts, a series of online courses (MOOCs) for educators, international and local training, live webinars with experts, and many more!
