The ESERO-UK Tim Peake Primary Project uses space to increase the engagement of primary school children with science, numeracy and literacy, with a dedicated network of space ambassadors. We work with primary schools in order to increase:

  • enjoyment and engagement in all lessons using the context of space
  • confidence in learning science and working scientifically
  • knowledge of career opportunities available to pupils who study science and maths subjects
  • teacher confidence in teaching space topics

The ESERO-UK network of space ambassadors help schools take part in a range of space activities that have been created to support Tim’s mission to the ISS. These activities also include professional development for teachers that will be available locally and where possible delivered via INSET training.

Example activities include:

  • free access to resources and activities developed to link with Tim Peake’s mission
  • Astro Pi resources that help teach computing using a Raspberry Pi computer.
  • help in achieving the Space Education Quality Mark
  • loans of a Space Case of resources to support teaching of materials
  • in-classroom support to deliver inspiring space lessons
  • teacher Continuing Professional Development (CPD) delivered in school or online

Our Space Ambassadors are a group of experienced educators with a passion for space and include both space experts and those from teaching background.

All activities run by our space ambassadors will be free for your school to take part in.
