During the meeting, we clarified details for the summer school, made additions to the toolkits and checked through the Teacher’s Manual.

NUCLIO were our hosts at the Lake Alqueva Observatory, and they made sure that the discussions ran smoothly and that we felt at home. We got a lot done, and are happy to announce that we are on track. And, as always after successful reunions, we came away with even more ideas to improve the project!
