Students follow in the footsteps of scientists

Reacting to the current need for innovative, high-quality educational materials, the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Southern Observatory (ESO) have together produced a series of astronomical exercises for use in European high schools. The exercises allow 16-19 year old students to gain exciting hands-on experience in astronomy, making realistic calculations with data obtained by some of the world's best telescopes, the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and ESO's Very Large Telescope (VLT).
