And the winner is...

Published: 19/06/2013

This year, Discover the COSMOS project organized a contest for teachers that was closed on the 15th of May.

The Discover the COSMOS Challenge was open to teachers and students from all over the world. The challenge was designed to encourage collaborative work between teachers, trainers, scientists and students, with a view to promoting the exploration of online scientific resources in the classroom - i.e. e-Science tools, resources and e-Infrastructures.

For the contest, we had been supported by the following e-Infrastructures, that provided the astronomical images to be used for the contest: Astronomical Observatory of Coimbra, National Schools Observatory and Faulkes Telescope Project and by the following programs: TWAN (The World at Night) and Astronomers Without Borders.

After a really hard work by the judging panel we are very pleased to announce you the winner:

Dr. Philippe Kobel, who created the learning activity, entitled: "Why does the sunlight energy vary? Explaining solar irradiance variations with SalsaJ".

The link for the learning activity can be found HERE.

The prize: participation in the Discover the COSMOS Summer School in Volos, from July 30th to August 4th 2013 with all expenses of the trip: travel, lodging, meals and course fees covered!
