Go-Lab, Inquiry Scenarios Using Online Labs

Friday, 1 November, 11:30-12:30 | Room WS8

Maria Luísa Almeida – NUCLIO
Physics, Chemistry, Natural Sciences, Biology, Geology, Geography, Mathematics, ICT

Looking for online labs? And lessons with online labs? And inquiry learning online lessons?

In the Go-Lab Ecosystem you can: find the largest collection of online labs, try-out interactive inquiry apps, combine labs and apps into Inquiry Learning Spaces (ILSs) and share these with your students and colleagues. You can create your own ILSs, or copy and adapt ILSs from the database.

This workshop will give you an overview of the Go-Lab Ecosystem – sharing and authoring platform – and show how it can help you bring inquiry based learning to your classroom.

IDiverSE – Art and Design Thinking for Science Education

Friday, 1 November, 16:00-17:00 | Room WS8
Saturday, 2 November, 14:00-15:00 | Room WS3

Priscila Doran – NUCLIO
All subject domains

IDiverSE is a project that proposes an innovative learning methodology where students develop interdisciplinary projects related to real-life contemporary problems (bees, plastics, natural disasters, etc.), producing an important and relevant outcome for their community, while at the same time learning several scientific concepts.

By following a Design Thinking approach, students Feel the problem, Imagine solutions, Create an outcome to share the solution and raise awareness and then Share with their community.

In this workshop, teachers receive a playful introduction to Inquiry-Based Learning and learn about the Design Thinking method, applied to Education.

NOTE: For November 2nd (Open Day) registration will be open to general public

FRONTIERS – Bringing Nobel Prize Physics to the Classroom

Saturday, 2 November, 11:30-12:30 | Room WS8
Saturday, 2 November, 14:00-15:00 | Room WS5 – Online Registration for Portuguese Secondary School Teachers

Maria Luísa Almeida – NUCLIO
Astrophysics, Particle Physics

Have you ever wondered how we can integrate Modern Physics in the school curriculum? Do you believe that exciting discoveries such as the Discovery of Gravitational Waves or the Discovery of the Higgs Boson can be brought in the classroom in a consistent and understandable fashion?

The FRONTIERS project brings together expertise from frontier scientific research and educational research in formal and informal science learning, along with user communities across Europe, in order to demonstrate how Nobel Prize winning science can be systematically integrated in the school curriculum.

This workshop invites secondary school teachers to learn about the project and how to be a FRONTIER teacher.

NOTE: Registrations will be open to general public.

Finding Possible Earth Killer Objects – A Citizen Science Program

Saturday, 2 November, 14:00-15:00 | Room WS2

Leonor Cabral, Salvador Bruschy – NUCLIO
Physics, astronomy and citizen science

Scientists monitor the sky to find new objects in the solar system, not only for their research but also to identify dangerous near-Earth objects.

With the International Astronomical Search Collaboration (IASC), a worldwide citizen science and educational program, schools can have access to real data and make real discoveries.

This workshop will introduce the IASC campaigns and demonstrate how to use the specific software for image analysis, Astrometrica, that helps find moving objects against a field of stars.

It is an exceptional opportunity for students of all levels and teachers to participate in real science investigation – join us!

NOTE: Registrations will be open to general public.

Our Space Our Future

Saturday, 2 November, 15:00-16:00 | Auditorium

Rosa Doran – NUCLIO
Space Careers, Science Careers

Space is closer than we think, and we do not need a rocket to reach it.

OUR SPACE OUR FUTURE aims to engage students, families and community and show them how space impacts their daily life, even though they might not be aware of it. We want to inspire our students, guiding them towards new paths they didn’t know were available and unveiling careers they thought were inaccessible. OUR SPACE OUR FUTURE is developing a set of activities, methodologies and tools to help teachers and their students reach the stars together.

In this workshop, we will present, discuss and gather ideas on how to make Space inclusive for all our students.

NOTE: Open to general public.
