Global Hands-On Universe & Galileo Teacher Training Program conference

GHOU is one of the largest coordinated astronomy education networks in the world, and a pathfinder for Global Science Education: 5000 teachers joined around the world in 2009!

The GHOU annual conference takes place this year in Germany. The first three days (GTTP) will be training on the use of several new, great emerging resources (the Universe Quest Game, GHOU activities -- Exo-planets!, International Asteroid Search Campaign!, Measuring the Expanding Universe from Supernovae!, etc.).
