Outreach at EPSC 2021

EPSC 2021 has put together an active programme of outreach activities to share the fascination and inspiration of planetary science with people around the world and to build links with new communities.

  • EPSC 2021 Goes Live for Schools: Once again, the Europlanet Science Congress (EPSC) will be opening its doors to schools and giving students a glimpse of how contemporary science is done. Teachers and students are kindly invited to join us virtually with their classroom or educational institute  (suggested age range 12-18 years old or older).
  • #InspiredByOtherWorlds arts contest: The Europlanet Society Congress (EPSC) 2021 is inviting schools  and space enthusiasts of all ages to get creative and share their artworks and performances inspired by other worlds in a contest called #InspiredByOtherWorlds. The theme this year is ‘Ingenuity’. Let your imagination take us on a voyage through our Solar System and planets around distant stars! Show us how you have been inspired to create drawings, storytelling, pictures, videos, models, craft works or art installations at home. 
  • EPSC 2021 Planetary Science Wiki Edit-a-thon: The Diversity Committee of the Europlanet Society, in collaboration with Women in Red and WikiDonne, are organising an Edit-a-thon during EPSC2021 to highlight diversity within the planetary science community. Following on from the successful Edit-a-thon at EPSC2020 and ongoing monthly meetings, EPSC2021 will be an opportunity to expand the group and develop more new profiles and translations.
  • #PlanetaryScience4All video contest: The Europlanet Early Career (EPEC) Communication working group is giving doctoral candidates, Bachelor’s and Master’s students involved in planetary science the opportunity to showcase their research through a 4-minute video contest called #PlanetaryScience4All. Videos will be shown during a dedicated session during the Europlanet Science Congress (EPSC) 2021. The winner of the competion will receive a free registration for EPSC 2022 in Granada.
