Educators and teachers: apply now to take part in the 2020 GIFT workshop!

15 October 2019

The Geosciences Information For Teachers (GIFT) workshop is taking place on May 4–6 2020 at the EGU General Assembly in Vienna, Austria. It will be preceded on Sunday May 3 by a guided visit to the splendid Vienna Natural History Museum, one of the most renowned in the world.

The topic of the 2020 edition of GIFT is ‘Water in the solar system ‘. Over two and a half days, the workshop will explore key aspects of water on Earth and other planets through both topical presentations from scientists at the cutting edge of research and hands-on teaching activities, following the tradition of GIFT workshops.

Teachers are also invited, on a voluntary basis, to present unofficial program activities that they may have developed with their pupils during the ‘Science in future Classrooms’ poster session, which is an integral part of the GIFT workshop.

Interested teachers should apply using the online application form.

The closing date for receipt of completed applications is 30 November 2019.

Teachers will be notified of the results of their application by mid-December. Successful teachers will be largely sponsored (travel, living expenses in Vienna and registration to the General Assembly, as well as free public transportation in Vienna).
