With the wonderful support of Start Motion Pictures, one of our current SkypeRead projects brings together STEM practitioners (from the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) to do read-throughs of “Europa Report”.
The movie tells the story of a manned mission to search for life on Europa, one of the Galilean moons of Jupiter. Space.com called it “one of the most thrilling and realistic depictions of deep-space exploration since ‘Moon’ or ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’.”

There are three elements that make “Europa Report” an ideal read-through for both STEM professionals and students: (i) highly realistic science and engineering, (ii) highly realistic language, and (iii) it’s a wonderful, multinational ‘team movie’.
