Teachers can find inspiration for class-room activities in the ESO's magazine "Science in Schools".

The 25 edition just went live and you can find a link here: http://www.eso.org/public/announcements/ann12095/ 

"Science in School" touches on subjects from all areas of the curriculum.

Here are some of my highlights:

I find it a great site, all yours to enjoy!



About ESO

ESO, the European Southern Observatory is an intergovernmental astronomy organisation in Europe and "the world's most productive astronomical observatory" they say. They conduct front-line science in the best conditions with a budget of approximately 131 million Euros per year.

ESO employs around 730 staff members. We meet two of them so far: 

  • Julian Girard in 2011 during the World Space Week when myself and Elf Eldridge interviewed him for our podcast http://www.worldspaceweek.org.nz/2011/event/64/podcast-03-julien-girard-astronomer-european-southern-observatory He works at the Very Large Telescope in Paranal. If you wish to find out more about the VLT, watching the movie "We Are Astronomers" at Carter Observatory is a great place to start! 
  • Oana Sandu in 2012 who sent us a most wonderful powerpoint on Outreageous Outreach for the Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand at the 2012 conference in Wairarapa which I presented on stage. Here is Oana's site where you can find more useful information about astronomy communication and outreach. http://astronomycommunication.com/
