This is a wonderful opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills in astronomy at CSIRO's Parkes Observatory, home of the iconic 64m Parkes radio telescope. Over three days you will hear about the latest research in astronomy, tour The Dish, trial classroom activities, learn new approaches to teaching astronomy and how to run a viewing night while networking with colleagues and professional astronomers.
This professional development event also qualifies as a Galileo Teacher Training Program workshop, giving you international accreditation. NSW teachers also receive full BOSTES accreditation for professional development hours through CSIRO's agreement with the Science Teachers' Association of NSW.
