During the 13th to 17th of May, the city of Milan will host the 3rd edition of the School Lab event, as part of the Living Planet Symposium 2019, the largest conference dedicated to Earth Observation and Space Sciences, organised by the European Space Agency. The School Lab had successfully taken place before in LPS Prague (2016) and LPS Edinburgh (2013) and the 2019 edition aims to match the previous achievements and bring together students and teachers for discovering the exiting science and technology behind Earth Observation and Space Sciences in an interactive manner.
Remote sensing technologies and techniques for monitoring and researching the Earth and studying its atmosphere, geosphere, antroposphere, biosphere and hydrosphere will be showcased by various space agencies, research institutes and universities. Students and teachers alike are invited to dive into this fascinating world, think about Planet Earth as a system, and discover real world applications and use cases for observing, monitoring and modelling such a complex system.
The School Lab has been designed to promote critical thinking and complement and integrate the knowledge students have gained during physical, mathematical and Earth science classes, in accordance to the secondary school curriculum. Moreover, students will have the opportunity to interact with space sector professionals and become aware of the possible study and career paths in the Space sector.
The School Lab sessions will last for 3 h and run from Monday to Friday (mornings and/or afternoon) during the conference, in the designated area of the MiCo convention centre. Students aged 14 to 18 and their schools are invited to register for one of the sessions and take advantage of this unique opportunity for getting an insight in the Space research world.
