In Service Training Workshop for secondary school teachers

SEISMOLOGY@SCHOOL (Napels, Italy, June 4-8, 2012). Scientists and education experts from Italy, France, Switzerland and the UK have put together and in-service training workshop aimed at secondary school teachers of sciences or geosciences who are interested in finding out how to use seismology in their own classrooms as a “hook” to get students interested in a wide range of science topics and as a socially relevant context for seeing how the work of scientists impacts everyday lives. The workshop will run over five days in Naples, Italy and will include lectures, practical sessions and field visits to local volcanoes.
Teachers attending the course from the EU or associated states would expect to obtain full funding for all travel, accommodation, food, and course costs from the EU COMENIUS funding programme. (Click here for further course details.)
