11.08 | Citizen science and basic education: how to develop a project with schools’ engagement in scientific research?
The practical approaches to develop schools’ engagement in scientific research is the topic of the STEM Education Hub next free online seminars. On the 11th of August, at 14.00-16.00 (BST), specialists from the UK and Brazil will lead roundtables to discuss and explore with participants the concept of citizen science and practical approaches to implement research/evidence-based pedagogies. The event will have simultaneous interpretation available in both English and Portuguese.
The sessions will discuss schools’ projects focused on scientific research and developed in collaboration with universities and/or non-formal educational spaces. More information about the program and panelists’ profiles soon.
