From Leuven to Space

Frank De Winne, Anna Lee Fisher

Lecture, Celebration, Meet & Greet

Leuven BSW schools

Description: In an after­noon ses­sion (arrival from 13h30, start 14h) for upper sec­ondary and KU Leuven stu­dents, the astro­nauts will inter­act with the audi­ence in KU Leuven’s beau­ti­ful Promotion Hall (Naamsestraat 22). During the ses­sion sev­er­al KU Leuven researchers will explain their own space-relat­ed research, and we will inform those with ambi­tions to embark on sci­en­tif­ic stud­ies and/​or work in the space sec­tor. The two-hour ses­sion will end with a drink in the University Halls to which all atten­dees are invit­ed. The work­ing lan­guage for this ses­sion is English. The pro­gramme can be found below.
Register now to take part in this unique and mem­o­rable event, indi­vid­u­al­ly or as a teacher with your class! When reg­is­ter­ing, you can also share ques­tions you want to ask the astro­nauts. We will select a few of these ques­tions that will be answered in the ses­sion.
There are 250 seats in the Promotion Hall, and we will close the reg­is­tra­tion when the max­i­mum capac­i­ty is reached (tak­ing into account the applic­a­ble COVID regulations).
