Astronomy EDUcation Alliance Meeting in Estoril
Rosa Doran and her colleagues in NUCLIO organized a very well attended and engaging global astronomy education meeting from 8-12 September in Estoril, Portugal.

Invited speakers came from all over the world and included ISE partner Sofoklis Sotiriou from Ellinogermaniki Agogi in Greece. Lots of really exciting initiatives were presented by both experts from astronomy outreach initiatives and teachers who are taking up opportunities afforded through recent developments in astronomy to make teaching science more engaging, innovative and relevant.
