Bringing academic researchers closer to STEM educators


This project, amounting to CHF 200’000 and financed by the FNS-AGORA, aims to popularize scientific publications to make them usable in the classroom by teachers. The researchers themselves will be involved in the popularization of their work. Continuous training and webinars will be organized, and classes will be able to contact researchers to discuss discoveries. This project is being implemented by the BiOutils and TheScienceBreaker interfaces with Secondary 2 teachers.
