This is an announcement for the Global Hands-On Universe (GHOU)’s first Africa Regional Conference Galileo Teacher Training Program (GTTP) – international teacher training workshop, which will take place from 24 to 29 September 2019, hosted by Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane, Morocco.
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)
* Moon craters and black holes with SalsaJ
