Astronomy, space and planetary sciences offer an inspiring context for science and technology lessons in the classroom. Sharing the excitement of latest developments in planetary science, will greatly help to enhance visibility and public engagement and to inspire young peoples' science careers involving them in real research. We provide an opportunity for scientists to be exposed to best practices in school engagement, and encourage them to build their own communication skills for engagement with schools and young people.
