School Trips to the Euro Space Center, Belgium

The Euro Space Center in Libin, Belgium, offers out-of-this-world adventures for students of all ages. With ‘astronaut training’ sessions, innovative simulators, and fascinating multimedia exhibitions, it’s a great opportunity to go where no science lesson has ever gone before.

On a school trip to Euro Space Center, groups will engage in a full programme lasting 2-5 days. Groups will stay on site for the duration of their visit, with the option to explore the local area in the evenings, or indeed stay on site and relax.  There are also opportunities to make exciting stops en route to/from the center such as Lille, Bruges or Brussels!   

We highly recommend the Euro Space Center in Belgium for the following subjects:

Hidden Gems

Theme your visit - Astronomy

As well as the ‘standard’ astronaut training, you have the option to include additional astronomy sessions in your visit.

These special classes allow your students to discover our solar system, explore distant galaxies, and even unlock the mysteries of the black hole. A complete programme is also available on request.

Theme your visit – Rocket

If your class includes budding engineers, why not add optional ‘Rocket’ sessions to your programme at the center?

During this interactive learning experience, students will discover the basics of space engineering. And after a lesson on propulsion systems and stability in flight, they’ll be able to build and launch their own rockets. A sure fire way to make sure they have a blast!
