The 2nd International training course was held in Crete, Greece, from the 1st of July to the 5th of July 2013.  35 teachers from  9 different countries participated in the training course.

The second international training was mostly intended to address inquiry-based learning in science education (IBSE) with younger primary students, aged 3 to 7. The training commenced with a general introduction to the Pri-Sci-Net Project, followed by a discussion on the meaning of IBSE in the context of primary level education.

Next, there was a presentation of the IBSE activities that were developed by the project partners for ages 3 to 7. Finally, participants were given the opportunity to experience some of those activities but also to engage in the process of adapting such activities or even designing their own activities. Emphasis was given to the Pri-Sci-Net teacher platform and its potential to serve as medium that could facilitate interactions and the exchange of ideas and teaching materials among teachers interested in IBSE.
