When did you first learn about GTTP:
Back in 2008, from Rosa Doran
What was the first GTTP workshop you took part in:
I organised the first GTTP course in a Spain in the summer of 2009 during the International Year of Astronomy. It was entitled “Astronomia y Educación” and was held at El Escorial within the framework of my University Summer School.
Why did you decide to organise GTTP workshops for local teachers/educators:
Because it is important that science teachers are able to teach science as it is practiced. Science is about inquire on the nature behavior.
What tools/methods do you use in your training sessions:
Lectures, computers, some small instrumentation, access to the EU-HOU facilities (Faulkes telescopes, radio telescopes networks…)
Advice for teachers out there:
Keep the passion, the next generation deserves it and do not forget that you are not alone, there is a network behind you.
Tips for other GTTP ambassadors around the world:
Ask many questions… and help the attendees to workshops to own their answer.
What do you do in your spare time:
Read, walk and “experimental cooking”
