The European project aptly named Inspiring Science Education offers access to digital resources and learning opportunities

Teachers have the chance to teach and inspire their students to achieve their own scientific discoveries, to observe and understand the way the natural and scientific phenomenons work. They have access to cutting-edge interactive tools in the classroom.

SIVECO Romania is partner in the European Inspiring Science Education project developed from April 2013 to July 2016. The main purpose of the project is to deliver digital resources that make education in the scientific area will be more captivating and funnier.

The project supports a system that will help teachers to develop and provide educational scenarios using a range of existing eLearning tools and resources (virtual laboratories and Augmented Reality), including the usage of mobile devices and technologies for people with disabilities and special needs.

Inside the program there will be workshops, experience exchanges that offer access to teachers communities and teacher trainers communities in order to help them discover ways to make the science teaching process more exciting. Students get a variety of innovative tools and digital resources that provide opportunities to collaborate (beyond and in the classroom).

SIVECO, along with other project partners, creates resources and eLearning tools and infrastructure involved in creating educational content.

"Inspiring Science Education calls for modernization of schools giving them access to worldwide online tools and interactive digital resources for scientific disciplines. First, there will be pilot activities in 5,000 primary and secondary schools from 15 European countries. During the activities, teachers will use interactive simulations, educational games and applications like eScience, which will complete the extracurricular activities such as trips to science centers and theme parks or virtual visits in research centers", declared Monica Florea Research & Development Department Manager, SIVECO Romania.

Inspiring Science Education is a pan-european project which involves partners from 15 countries, including scientific experts.
