From 2013-02-01 to 2016-07-31 

The aim of this teacher training project is to help transform science and mathematics teaching practice across Europe by giving teachers new skills to engage with their students, exciting new resources and the extended support needed to effectively introduce enquiry based learning into their classrooms. This would be achieved by working with teacher training institutions and teacher networks across Europe through innovative training programmes called enquiry labs.

These are based on the core scientific concepts and emotionally engaging activity of solving mysteries, i.e. exploring the unknown. Within enquiry labs, scientists and communication professionals (e.g. actors, communication experts, etc.) will serve to mentor teachers through the transition to use enquiry to teach science. A spoke and hub model for coordination and delivery allows the project to both respond to local country needs while maintaining an overall EU wide sharing of best practices and reporting.
