ESERO (European Space Education Resource Office) Ireland website is now live . It will act as a signpost to ESA (European Space Agency) education resources and space related teacher’s workshops, competitions, conferences and news.

ESERO is a partnership between Discovery Science and Engineering and the European Space Agency. Ireland is now the fifth country with its own ESERO.

ESERO aims to inspire and engage young people in STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), using space as a theme and making Ireland’s space industry more accessible to students and the public. It also provides a point of contact for teachers, lecturers and others seeking information about space education.

One of the initial tasks in piloting was mapping the existing ESA education material to the Irish Junior Science curriculum see:

During Science Week 2010 a workshop for teachers called ‘Web Of Stars’ in Blackrock Castle Observatory was piloted.
