Dates: 17-21 February 2023
Venue: Observatório do Lago do Alqueva, Monsaraz, Portugal
Imagine spending 5 days under the darkest skies of Portugal while learning how to use robotic telescopes and to bring the Universe to your classroom!
This is what the LaSciL Winter School will offer!
This winter course is developed in the context of the project LaSciL – Large Scientific Infrastructures enriching online and digital Learning.
Teachers from European countries will gather at the small village of Monsaraz, in the Alentejo region of Portugal, at the heart of the Alqueva Dark Sky Reserve.
One of the main objectives of the course is to engage teachers in a productive dialogue concerning the LaSciL proposed methodology of linking Astronomy and robotic telescopes to the classroom. Educators will have the opportunity to share their experiences and reflect on the implementation of activities based on the LaSciL methodology (including LaSciL demonstrators). They will participate in hands-on workshops on LaSciL resources broadening their skills and knowledge, allowing them to create and/or implement more Astronomy related activities.
If weather conditions allow it, participants will also have the unique opportunity of observing the night sky form the Alqueva Dark Sky Reserve.
