Cape Town 2023 GIFT Workshop

The EGU Education Committee is proud to announce the fourth Cape Town Geosciences Information for Teachers (GFIT) workshop. Dedicated to bringing science to teachers, the Cape Town GIFT workshop features local scientific experts from the University of Cape Town, the Iziko South African Museum, and the Two Oceans Aquarium. Together, teachers and scientists will explore water through space and time, from presentations on the origin of the oceans and the role of traditional knowledge in ocean conservation to lesson building using aquarium touch tanks.

Participants for the in-person workshop were nominated by their subject advisor (SA) or university advisor (for pre-service teachers). All participants nominated and chosen committed to attending all days of the program.

The Cape Town GIFT workshop 2024 was funded by the European Geoscience Union, with contributions from Westermann Publishing House, Geological Society of South Africa, and the Geological Society of South Africa – Western Cape Branch.
