EPSC 2021 goes live for schools

Once again, the Europlanet Science Congress (EPSC) 2021, a scientific conference on planetary science, is opening its doors to schools and will give students a glimpse of how contemporary science is done.

Teachers and students are kindly invited to join us virtually with their classroom or educational institute  (suggested age range 12-18 years old or older).

When

This autumn, presenters from all over the world will make their work available to schools to follow online. A list of topics on high level planetary science, ranging from the Moon to the exoplanets and laboratory experiments will be given. 

Events 

  • Teachers’ supporting material 
  • Live webinars with scientists
  • Q&A sessions in various languages 
  • Interactive sessions

See what happened last year!

These activities are kindly being organised by the researchers of Lecturers without Borders, the Europlanet Early Career (EPEC) Network and the Diversity Committee of the Europlanet Society.

We will record your expression of interest and you will receive – in late September 2021 – more information on the detailed program and on how to participate.

Let’s open up science to young students and give them the chance to  ask  experts in planetary science questions directly! The content will be held in English, with a possibility of a follow-up in the native language of the speaker, if different from English (Portuguese and Italian are already included). More to be announced soon.

With the kind support of the Diversity Committee of the Europlanet Society, Lecturers without Borders, Europlanet Early Career network (EPEC), Scientix and Frontiers in Science.
