Of the many wonderful activities students can take part in at the Euro Space Center, here are just a few:
The Euro Space Center is suitable for all students aged between 8-18. Space camp activities are designed to adhere to the National Curriculum and teachers are provided with resources that include course notes and student worksheets. Activities can be adapted to the needs and levels of the students.
Our students stay at Euro Space Centre itself, in small dormitory-style rooms, with staff in single rooms where possible.
Through micro- rockets workshops, astronaut training sessions , presentations and debates, a simulated space flight and various scientific experiments, the Euro Space Center places students in a situation of active and practical learning and enables them to explore and experiment with space sciences in a playful way.
Often working as a team, like astronauts or mission engineers working on a space project, the activities promote a sense of sharing, solidarity and respect for others and encourage debate and exchange.
Through a scientific experimental approach, the Euro Space Center offers students the opportunity to discover and understand the world we live in with a critical, informed and curious eye.
