Frog Blog on Tour

Frog Blogger Humphrey Jones set off to the NEMO Science Centre in Amsterdam this morning to take part in the Galileo Teacher Training Programme. The four day workshop is run in conjunction with the European Space Agency and will give the participants the opportunity to gain practical skills to enable them to enhance their teaching of the physical sciences, particularly in the area of astronomy. Mr Jones will learn about, and gain practical experience in, new tools and software which will enhance the teaching and learning of astronomy as a means of making pupils more enthusiastic about science. The four days pack in a series of workshops on various topics including how to access and use the ESA science data archives, reviewing ESA Education Resources, using image processing software, using robotic telescopes in the classroom and much more. Should be fun! Mr. Jones will be giving feedback on the workshop via Twitter throughout the week. Click here to see his Twitter page.
