Let's Learn about Space with Scoilnet

National Space Day is celebrated on the first Friday in May, or on May 7 this year. The goal of Space Day is to use the excitement of space exploration to encourage students' interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

If you don't have your Space Day plans already, you're in luck.

Focus on a Theme

Begin your space adventure using the space themes and space resources highlighted by the in-house Scoilnet team. The featured resources have been viewed the most by teachers searching through Scoilnet for space resources.

Visit the International Space Station

Transform your classroom into the international space station using Google Maps virtual tour. Allow students time to interact and explore the station.
