About the institution

Astra, the Dan­ish nation­al cen­ter for sci­ence edu­ca­tion, is the coor­di­nat­ing and uni­fy­ing actor that strength­ens sci­ence learn­ing in Den­mark. Astra helps cre­ate knowl­edge and aware­ness of sci­ence, as well as recruits par­tic­i­pants for sci­en­tif­ic edu­ca­tion pro­grams and com­pe­ti­tions. Through col­lab­o­ra­tion and coor­di­na­tion across the edu­ca­tion­al chain, Astra works to equip a new gen­er­a­tion of chil­dren and young peo­ple in Den­mark with sci­ence skills. Astra has approx­i­mate­ly 60 employ­ees at four dif­fer­ent loca­tions in Den­mark. Among Astra’s many activ­i­ties is host­ing Young Sci­en­tist, the largest nation­al com­pe­ti­tion for young­sters inter­est­ed in sci­ence, and Sci­ence Tal­ents, a large tal­ent cen­ter mak­ing sci­ence camps for tal­ent­ed young­sters all year round.
