European Space Education Resource Office

Nowadays a decreasing number of young people decide to take up STEM-related (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) studies and careers. The ESERO project is contributing to make a difference and reverse this negative trend through an Education programme which targets students starting from an early age.

ESERO uses space related themes and the genuine fascination felt by young people for space to enhance school pupils’ literacy and competence in STEM-related subjects. The ESERO project also highlights the associated applications from space and raises awareness of the large range of career prospects in the space domain.

By using the space context to make the teaching and learning of STEM subjects more attractive and accessible, pupils can feel more comfortable and familiar with sciences in general. The ESERO activities help bring STEM subjects within the pupils reach, demolishing the misconception that science is only for geniuses.

ESERO freely offers teacher training sessions for both primary and secondary school teachers, teaching materials, workshops and fieldtrips.

ESERO Hungary is a project of the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Implemented by Design Terminal and its partners Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Eötvös Lóránd University and the Hungarian Astronautical Society.

Teacher Trainings

As part of the initiative ESERO Hungary together with its partner ELTE offers free teacher training curses. The main aim of the training is to provide a tool for teachers and put in an extra spark of excitement with the help of new materials, experiments and exercises to make STEM subjects more interesting for students.
