The EGU’s Geosciences Information for Teachers (GIFT) programme offers teachers the opportunity to hone their skills in the Earth Sciences. The General Assembly Workshop is one of GIFT’s most important activities of the year and combines presentations on current research by leading scientists with hands-on activities presented by educators to teachers attending the event.
Natural Hazards is the theme of this year’s workshop series, which will be taking place from Monday, 8 April to Wednesday, 10 April during the EGU General Assembly 2013. This series will cover some of the issues surrounding the most topical natural hazards currently facing society, with presentations from world-renowned scientists at the General Assembly. Teachers will also be able to take home a set of hands-on activities to use in the classroom – take a look at some of last year’s Palaeontology activities to get a feel for what’s involved.
You can find out more about this year’s GIFT workshop series in the workshop programme.
Films that are relevant to the natural hazards series will be also screened in GeoCinema during the GIFT lunch breaks!
