The European Space Agency (SA) together with the Galileo Teacher Training Programme (GTTP) are organizing in the frame of the Space Awareness project an unique workshop for teachers. Participants at this workshop will have the chance to explore innovative ways to use space science and astronomy in the classroom to engage students in the sciences.

The PLATON multiplier events will be a one day event for teachers and the participants will receive a certificate of participation. Prior to the event, teachers will receive ample information and training materials so they can familiarize themselves beforehand.
