The ESA/GTTP Workshop

The ESA/GTTP Workshop

The European Space Agency is organising a Galileo Teacher Training Program Workshop, for teachers of science at secondary school, to be held at the NEMO Science Centre, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from 29 June to 1 July 2009.

Purpose of the workshop

The workshop, organised by the European Space Agency as part of the Galileo Teacher Training Program (GTTP), a cornerstone of the International Year of Astronomy, is designed to provide participants with the opportunity to gain practical hands-on skills to enable them to teach the physical sciences, in particular physics, using astronomy and space science as vehicles for engaging the current generation of second level students with science. This timely workshop is ideal for teachers who are new to teaching the physical sciences or for those who wish to bring fresh ideas to their lessons. The content of the workshop is particularly suited to teachers of pre-University students, those in the final years of secondary school.

Structure of the workshop and the programme

The workshop is organised in a series of hands-on sessions in which expert teachers will present proven classroom activities in which key scientific elements are taught using examples from astronomy and space science. The programme for the workshop highlights ESA educational resources and includes sessions on the use of robotic telescopes and image processing software. Full details of the programme can be found on the dedicated web page (see "ESA/GTTP workshop - the programme").


The workshop will be held at the NEMO Science Centre, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. This location is well served by public transport and is within walking distance of Amsterdam Central Station.  (See "ESA/GTTP workshop - practical information".)
