RISSCLab along with scientists and education experts from Italy, France, Switzerland and the UK have organized an in-service training workshop aimed at secondary school teachers of sciences or geosciences who are interested in finding out how to use seismology in their own classrooms as a "hook" to get students interested in a wide range of  science topics and as a socially relevant context for seeing how the Work of scientists impacts everyday lives.

The workshop will run over five days in Naples, Italy and will include lectures, practical sessions and field visits to local volcanoes.
