Description of IYL & Light-based Technologies 2015


In 2015 we are celebrating the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies (IYL2015). This initiative sanctioned by the United Nations and UNESCO aims to bring awareness about the importance of light in our lives, its potential to the promotion of sustainable development and to enhance our knowledge frontiers.  The IYL2015 summer school in Portugal is a tailored training for educators aiming to bring cutting edge topics related to the event to schools. Light for education is our vision for this unique event where experts of diverse areas gather together to offer to teachers the opportunity to learn about current developments in different fields and how they can implement hands-on/minds-on activities in their classrooms.  This training targets the content of the Cosmic Light EDU kit, one of the cornerstones of IYL2015, endorsed by the International Astronomical Union.
