Online Workshop COST Milky Way - Gaia: Bringing the Milky Way to schools 2021
Wednesday to Friday, 2 - 4 of June, 2021 · 10h00 – 13h00 CET
The COST action MW-Gaia (CA-18104) is pleased to announce the workshop "Bringing the Milky Way to schools"that will take place virtually hosted by Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (Portugal) and Vilnius University (Lithuania): 2-4 June 2021.
During this 3 day workshop we will try to bring together the research, the teaching and the science communication communities. This will be done by presenting the work that has been done throughout the years on the exploration of our Milky Way, but also the attempts of turning this knowledge into useful and powerful tools for teaching, astronomy outreach and communicating science in general.
This workshop fits the Action by aiming to leave a significant legacy, creating a dynamic and vibrant network of researchers with expertise in the study of the Milky Way and teachers that aim to make their classrooms more engaging by using the Milky Way as a learning tool.
