Almost 100 participants joined a five-day training workshop in space and education for teachers to explore best practices and innovative uses of astronomy and space sciences for education. Among them were primary and secondary school teachers, educators, science communication professionals, and policy makers. The event covered the full spectrum of formal and informal education systems. Participants shared ideas, practices, and resources that have been developed and implemented by Space Awareness, GTTP, ESA Education, and their partners worldwide.

On 21 October, the contest for the best education resource took place at the Science Fair. Amelia Ortiz Gil from Observatorio Astronómico, Universidad de Valencia, Spain with her project "A touch of the Universe" won the first prize - a telescope!
