EU-UNAWE Universe Awareness
EU-UNAWE aims to use astronomy as a tool for inspiring and educating young children, and encourage them to develop an interest in science and technology. The programme also aims to introduce children to the idea of global citizenship and tolerance at a crucial stage of their development – to show them that they are part of an international community.
This programme is aimed at children aged 4 to 10 years, especially those from underprivileged communities, but the resources are open to all: on the website, multimedia as well as educational materials and guidelines are available.
Xplore Health is a European educational portal on cutting-edge health research that offers innovative multimedia and hands-on experiences to young people through the internet, schools and science centres and museums. This project's aims are: to bridge the gap between research and education, to inspire future researchers, to promote scientific literacy and to stimulate dialogue.
On the Xplore Health website, you can find a multimedia gallery with lots of videos, games and experiments and various resources for educators such as classroom activities, educators' guides and experiments protocols.
e-Bug is a free educational resource for classroom and home use that makes learning about micro-organisms, the spread, prevention and treatment of infection fun and accessible for all students.
The website is divided in three sections for Junior Students, Senior Students and for Teachers, where lesson plans, student worksheets, activities and presentations are available. All activities and plans have been designed to complement the National Curriculum. The student pages complement the teacher resources by providing online games, revision pages and more to continue the learning experience at home.
EU-HOU Hands-on Universe
The EU-HOU project ("Hands-On Universe, Europe. Bringing frontline interactive astronomy to the classroom") is a collaboration of hundreds of teachers and scientists from 14 countries with the purpose of creating a way for students to get excited by science, primarily through the use of astronomy.
This project developed hands-on exercises (available at http://www.euhou.net/index.php?option=com_content&task=blogcategory&id=4...) in lot of different languages, designed to promote an active learning by giving student real astronomical data to find a new planet, explore volcanos on the moons of Jupiter, classify stars, or weigh a galaxy. Each exercise comes complete with detailed instructions for how easily display, analyze, and interpret the data in the classroom, using the free software SalsaJ, downloadable at http://www.euhou.net/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=8&Itemid=10.
