Abstract

The Science Ambassador project, initiated by ESO Fellows from Garching and Vitacura, is designed to disseminate information about ESO’s activities by sending scientists to visit countries across Europe and Chile. The primary goals are: (1) to raise awareness of ESO’s mission and its telescopes, with a focus on the Extremely Large Telescope; (2) to transmit the ESO Supernova Planetarium & Visitor Centre experience to schools and the general public; and (3) to promote opportunities at ESO for early-career researchers. The project also provides a long-term legacy through training of local educators and donation of resources.
