Would you like to learn how to use space as a theme to engage and inspire children in STEM subjects? The STEM Ambassador West England Hub and UWE Bristol are hosting a CPD session for STEM Ambassadors in May, on how to run European Space Education Resource Office (ESERO) based activities with schools.
The ESERO-UK office is based in the National STEM Learning Centre at York University. It is funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) along with other partners. The aim of ESERO-UK is to both engage and inspire children in STEM subjects by using the context of “Space” as a method of delivery. To do this ESERO-UK uses a wealth of freely available quality assured resources, methods and ideas.
During the free 2 hour session, ESERO-UK Ambassador Jo Richardson will demonstrate how to use activities with schools. Jo will provide a hands on guide to what resources are available, free access to the database and illustrate just how successful an approach can be when promoting STEM to a school based audience. Although the session is mainly aimed at those working within a primary setting, many of the free resources available are also appropriate for the secondary classroom as well.
The session will run on Tuesday 7th May, 09:30-11:30 at UWE Bristol. STEM Ambassadors can sign up here.
Anyone who isn’t already a STEM Ambassador can register at www.stem.org.uk.
