The project is nearing its close as it ends on the 31st of August 2014. It has to be said that these three years were very hectic as all the partners worked hard to achieve the outputs that were planned.

It has to be said that the number of teachers who have been part of the project as beneficiaries were many.

The enthusiasm and willingness to bring about a change in the learning of science at primary level has kept the partners on their toes as well as motivated to keep on working in order to bring about a change in learning science.

Many things have been achieved through the project. These include:

  • 45 inquiry-based activities in science: 15 for ages 3-5 years; 15 for the age range 6-8 years and 15 for the age range 9-11 years. These activities are translated in 15 different languages . As these are being designed, the English version has been uploaded on www.priscinetwork.wordpress.com;
  • 3 international courses which trained over 90 teachers from 11 different countries were also organised in the Czech Republic, Crete, and Austria;
  • 2 International conferences were organised with around 180 teachers in total involved in both conferences together;
  • We have also published the ‘Inquiry in Primary Science’ Journal (IPSE) which can be accessed on www.prisci.net/IPSE

But overall, we have managed to get together so many primary teachers across Europe who have shared their practice and their  love for science – All for ensuring that young generations have good experiences for the learning of science!
