Maker Space @ Ecsite: The "dream image" shows how organizers Jochen Hunger, Jean-Michel Molenaar and Karolina Perrin see the new format. The Red Room at the center will not only be the location of the initial session on Thursday, 6th of June (entitled, 'Making, fabbing, tinkering: New approaches to learning by doing'), but also the place for getting in touch with tools and materials like 3D printers, laser cutters, soldering irons and electronic components.

News 6 May 2013

The European Space Agency will support the Space Group to develop events, educational activities and exhibits for Science Centres and Museums related to the Rosetta mission. A “Rosetta kit” will enable the Ecsite members to take part in a campaign related to this most exciting on-going space mission, which will lead to a lander to be released onto a comet surface and retrieve crucial information on the origins of the solar system.

The first step will be to work with Science Centres and Museums in a collaborative way on the definition of these events, educational activities and exhibits.

Space is vast, but on the 4th and 5th of June European Space Science Centres and Space Agencies will be nowhere else than in Gothenburg for two days of Pre-Conference workshops. Join the Space Group for a closer contact with Space professionals and Space news, programmes and discoveries. The Space Group will also offer opportunities for sharing experience, expertise, knowledge and tools.

This year’s Pre-Conference topic is: ARE YOU READY FOR ROSETTA ?

In November 2014, the European Space Agency spacecraft Rosetta will send a lander on the comet Churyumov – Gerasimenko.
