The 25 edition just went live and you can find a link here: http://www.eso.org/public/announcements/ann12095/
"Science in School" touches on subjects from all areas of the curriculum.
Here are some of my highlights:
- How to use mathematics to study Jupiter's Moons http://www.scienceinschool.org/2012/issue25/galileo (for students aged 13-18)
- Science in the open: brining the Stone Age to life for primary school pupils http://www.scienceinschool.org/2012/issue25/stoneage (I always loved archery this material also talks about how to make bows from branches)
I find it a great site, all yours to enjoy!
ESO, the European Southern Observatory is an intergovernmental astronomy organisation in Europe and "the world's most productive astronomical observatory" they say. They conduct front-line science in the best conditions with a budget of approximately 131 million Euros per year.
ESO employs around 730 staff members. We meet two of them so far:
- Julian Girard in 2011 during the World Space Week when myself and Elf Eldridge interviewed him for our podcast http://www.worldspaceweek.org.nz/2011/event/64/podcast-03-julien-girard-astronomer-european-southern-observatory He works at the Very Large Telescope in Paranal. If you wish to find out more about the VLT, watching the movie "We Are Astronomers" at Carter Observatory is a great place to start!
- Oana Sandu in 2012 who sent us a most wonderful powerpoint on Outreageous Outreach for the Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand at the 2012 conference in Wairarapa which I presented on stage. Here is Oana's site where you can find more useful information about astronomy communication and outreach. http://astronomycommunication.com/
