The 1st International training course was held in Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic, from the 28th January to the 1st February 2013. 25 teachers from 8 different countries participated in the training course.

The international training course was aiming to attract primary teachers who were interested to learn more about teaching science in the upper grades of the elementary school.

The training course tackled inquiry-based learning in science education (IBSE) and elaborated on various types of teaching and learning approaches that could be utilised in the classroom environment. Furthermore, the course offered specific subject content training in several areas of the primary education curriculum. Participants were also guided to join the Pri-Sci-Net virtual platform for IBSE in primary science and use that to share their work with other teachers. 

The course included lectures about IBSE and the Pri-Sci-Net Project. Also the teachers attended workshops in which they had the opportunity to participate (assuming the role of students) in inquiry-based activities, organized by the science educators involved in the project. Finally teachers were asked to design their own IBSE activities and upload them on the Pri-Sci-Net platform.
