The workshops will be available throughout the day, offering space exploration computer games, robotics programming initiation, painting on a big paper-made asteroid, turning meteor data into music, discovering space rovers, a guided visit to a pop-up planetarium, and engaging in even more fun activities.

The confirmed topics of the round-table discussions are:

  • Asteroids, Comets, and Space Missions
  • From Data to Art. Images and Sounds of Space
  • Space Resources for Exploration: Moon, Mars, and Beyond
  • Space Education in Luxembourg
