FT Team Visit Tenerife

Fraser from the FT Team was lucky enough in late July to help run a workshop for 23 teachers called 'Astronomy Adventure in the Canary Islands 2016' which was run at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) in La Laguna, Tenerife.

Along with Nayra Rodriguez (IAC) and Rosa Doran (NUCLIO, Portugal), Fraser was able to demonstrate several resources available to the teachers, who were predominantly from Spain, but also with participants from as far away as Greece, Estonia and Latvia.

The teachers took part in workshop sessions and lectures and were introduced to the Go-Lab Project and the National Schools' Observatory. They were also able to spend a day each at the Mt Teide observatory site and the La Palma site. Below, we see the teachers being shown a scaled version of the Solar System
