EO Education for Schools

ESA undertakes educational projects aimed at bringing Earth Observation into the school curriculum. ESA has developed the Earth Observation educational website, "Eduspace". Other activities include organising and contributing to workshops for teachers, and developing tools (such as atlases and CDs) for EO education.

Eduspace

ESA has produced and maintains the Earth Observation website for secondary schools, Eduspace. This website contains a wealth of knowledge about remote sensing, image processing, satellites, instruments and applications of Earth Observation. As well as being a source of information, the website is interactive and contains many exercises and case studies designed to be used with software and data that can be downloaded freely from the site. Eduspace is targeted mainly to secondary schools, but can be useful to anyone new to Earth Observation.

Training courses for teachers

ESA provides and contributes to training courses, workshops and other events where teachers are given instruction in the use of tools that will enable them to incorporate Earth Observation into the curricula of their subject. ESA also organises outreach events where students and teachers are made aware of ESA's activities in Earth Observation.

For more information on teacher training and outreach events for exercises and presentations, see 'EGU - GIFT Workshops' portlet below.

EO Educational Tools

ESA develops educational tools in the form of books, information packs, CDs, etc. For more information about Educational Tools, see the 'ESA School Atlas' page.

ESA Education

The Education department of ESA develops educational material and undertakes many activities in space education for children. Some of this is relevant also to Earth Observation.
