Developed within the framework of the Cordée de la réussite “. OSE the ISAE-SUPAERO “This project is the result of a collaboration between engineering students, teachers from partner high schools, engineers, professors and researchers from CNES, ISAE-SUPAERO, CNRS and the University of Toulouse III – Paul Sabatier, and mediators from the SPACE CITY.

Launched under the impulse of Sylvestre Maurice, astrophysicist at the Institut de Recherche en Astrophysique et Planétologie, this real pedagogical toolbox is intended for high school teachers who will be able to find exercises, experiments, tutorials, quizzes, photos, videos and interactive presentations on the major themes of space exploration.

On September 17, high school teachers who want to introduce space science and technology into their classrooms will be able to attend two sessions during the day, including the morning session dedicated to space exploration.

4 students from ISAE-SUPAERO accompanied by teachers from partner institutions will be able to train teachers from other academies. This training is organized in collaboration with the Rectorat de Toulouse.

The workshops will be based on the resources of the Martian kit recently developed by the CNES Youth Education Department in partnership with the Cordée OSE of ISAE-SUPAERO. On the program, activities around Ingenuity as well as scratch programming of Martian robot trajectories.
