From Thursday 16th to Saturday 18th of August 2018, a teacher training for secondary level teachers will be offered shortly before the General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union. During this teacher training, four topics will be introduced in teaser talks by scientists and teachers will work on materials in several workshop sessions. The output of the teacher training should be

  • to stay up-to-date in current astrophysical research
  • to receive materials which can be used in school education
  • to make contact with researchers and research facilities

On the last day some main projects in astrophysics will be presented by specialists to give an insight into designing, planing and realisation of such projects and what is or will be the scientific outcome.

Please follow this link to register for the teacher training program.
