The ASI initiatives to promote scientific education and support teaching 

The ASI promotes the education and circulation of scientific culture and works to attract young people to a technical-scientific career, to increase the interest towards space activities and make the potential of this sector known. 

The Agency carries out and participates in international and national activities to promote aerospace research, teaching and communication, targeted at students and teachers from Italian schools of all levels, by offering useful educative projects and products to support the study and in-depth analysis of the scientific topics related to Space. 

Science is a key tool to learn more about the world where we live and understand it, and the space programmes provide an amazing opportunity for scientific education activities, considering their great attractiveness to the collective imagination. Leveraging on this curiosity is useful to encourage a deeper interest in science and technology, to bring boys and girls closer to the technical-scientific studies and to create the pool of scientists, researchers and technicians Italy needs.
