A GTTP training session will be held in Rome, on Friday, 6th of July 2012, at the Pontificia Università Lateranense during European Week of Astronomy and Space Science (EWASS).


The Galileo Teacher Training Programme is living legacy of the IYA2009. The programme successfully reached over 8000 educators worldwide since 2009. The main aim of the programme is to create a strong support network where educators will find the needed tools and resources to engage and inspire their students for the beauty of science.

During EWASS 2012 there will be a special teacher training session were we intend to introduce modern tools for science education such as: Planetaria Software, Image processing software, hands-on activities with readily available material, etc. Participants will have the opportunity to get in touch with the “Discover the Cosmos” tools and learn how they can be involved with this (EC FP7 funded project) that brings real research into classroom.

If you have a tool that you would like to share, if you are an educators willing to learn new methods for science teaching make sure you don’t miss this opportunity.

The cost for teachers for the training day is 50 euros (that can be payed directly at the registration desk). Teachers interested in participating should contact info@galileoteachers.org
