Minimize EGU GIFT Workshop 2009

At each General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) a workshop is held offering teachers of elementary to high school the opportunity to upgrade their knowledge in geophysical themes and to shorten the time between new discoveries and textbook information.

The workshop is called Geosciences Information For Teachers (GIFT) and every year it focuses on a particular theme. The 2009 workshop took place from 19 – 22 April 2009 in Vienna, Austria, and the theme was "The Earth from Space". ESA contributed to this event by providing theoretical and practical training in EO applications related to geosciences for teachers. The practical sessions made use of the ESA LEOWorks software.
