European Space Agency Resources – Secondary

This collection contains a whole range of resources derived from ESA (European Space Agency) research. Many activities can be carried out as stand-alone lessons or mini projects in a STEM Club setting, as well as longer term student research projects ideal for EPQ purposes. There are many demonstrations to show step by step building of models including spacecraft. There are also a multitude of worksheets and wallcharts suitable as lesson starters or plenary tasks for all key stages. The videos feature interviews with real space scientists as well as animations and satellite imaging of space to stimulate interest and discussion.

These resources link to elements of the geography, while supporting aspects of science, maths and computing. Using early astronaut photographs, and more recent satellite images, they provide opportunities to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using each method for remote sensing. The main activity is based...
