    Lift Off - Secondary Space Education


    This session will explore innovative programmes focusing on space education and outreach to students aged 11 to 18. Emphasis will be placed on programmes that effectively engage secondary school students in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM), help them develop key skills, and foster a long-term passion for space. This session will also consider programmes and activities that focus on the professional development of secondary school teachers, or on educational methodologies of relevance to secondary education. When submitting abstracts for this session, please: ● Clearly identify the connection to secondary education/outreach and to space activities. ● Provide a short but clear description of the activity or the programme. ● Include some information about the unique, original or innovative nature of your activity or programme. ● Include lessons learned, recommendations or other take away messages in the body of your abstract. If any theories are developed, please include some information about the practical applicability of the information. ● Make sure that the abstract provides a coherent idea or narrative. ● If data has been gathered as part of the work (including evaluations), please include some reference to that in your abstract.
