ESA-GTTP 2023 – The Unlimited Universe

From the 11th to the 16th of September we held at ESAC the ESA-GTTP 2023 – The Unlimited Universe 

The European Space Agency and the Galileo Teacher Training Program joined hands again to bring cutting-edge training opportunities to teachers.

ESA-GTTP 2023 – The Unlimited Universe presented the greatest discoveries and advances in space sciences accomplished in 2022 and highlight the upcoming launches of space satellites in 2023. The program combined lectures given by experts with practical workshops to learn how to design student projects using scientific data obtained by world-class missions.

ESAC, ESA’s window to the Universe, welcomed teachers from all over the world. Meet the scientists, visit the facilities, and learn about the discoveries taking place there.

Teachers on site had the chance to meet space experts and perform special visits to ESA space centers (ESAC and ESA’s Cebreros tracking station) and to the Astrobiology Center (CSIC-INTA-Torrejn) together with an observing night in collaboration with the ESAC Astronomy Club. Participants had the opportunity to network and to establish a series of research projects in partnership with their colleagues and the scientists supporting the training. 

The training was organized by CESAR (Cooperation through Education in Science and Astronomy Research), the resident educational team at ESAC, and NUCLIO (the coordinator of the Galileo Teacher Training Program), with the support of the team from the IAC (Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias), the Faulkes Telescope Project and the National Schools’ Observatory, and in partnership with the ESIA (European School Innovation Academy).
