The GTTP goal is to create a worldwide network of Galileo ambassadors and Galileo teachers. These ambassadors would train teachers in the effective use and transfer of astronomy education tools and resources into classroom science curricula. The Galileo Teachers are equipped to train other teachers in these methodologies, leveraging the work that begun at IYA2009 in classrooms everywhere.

The training workshop will include:

* Asteroids Search; International Astronomical Search Collaboration (IASC)
