Go-lab project open call for schools


07/09/2015

Are you a teacher? Do you want to enrich your classes with exiting experiments and appealing demonstrations? Do you want your students to get hands-on experience of doing science? Then join the Go-Lab project and its pilot activities!

The Go-Lab project aims to encourage young people to engage in science topics, acquire scientific inquiry skills, and experience the culture of doing science by undertaking active guided experimentation.

The Go-Lab project offers a federation of remote laboratories, virtual experiments, and data-sets (together referred to as "online labs"), as well as facilities to embed these online labs in pedagogically structured learning spaces by teachers.

During the pilot activities you will be trained in using the online labs and the Go-Lab portal. You will also have the chance to create inquiry learning scenarios for your classes and to implement them in Inquiry Learning Spaces.

The Go-Lab project is looking for 1,000 schools from 15 pilot countries (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Estonia, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, and UK) to join the third phase of the pilot activities starting in November 2015. Participants from other countries are also welcome! If you are interested in the call, find your country in the list, and follow the instructions provided on the page.

The selection of participating schools for the third pilot phase has begun! Join the project and make your students excited about science!
