Located in the southern French-speaking area of Belgium, Euro Space Center is a unique European educational centre dedicated to space travel and learning about our galaxies and planets. This fascinating complex consists of training courses, workshops and numerous exhibitions, where participants can experience an array of interactive and visual displays, with a huge emphasis on ‘Making Science Fun’.
With either 2, 3 or more full days at the Center, students will engage in interactive activities which simulate space travel such as the zero-gravity wall, the multi-axis chair and the moon walk; learn about the challenges astronauts face in performing simple everyday activities in space; gain a deeper understanding of astronomy, the history of space conquest and the role of the International Space Station; engage with their team in the simulated launch and landing of a US Space Shuttle; design, build and launch a rocket.
All activities are led by teachers from the Belgium Ministry of Education and designed to fit the specific age of your students. Accommodation and dining is within the Center itself, with evening entertainment including a torchlight tour around the impressive Bouillon Castle. Groups can choose to add on a visit to the stunning Caves of Han and the adjacent wildlife park with bears and wolves!
