InLOT: In the Lab of Tomorrow

The project In the Lab of Tomorrow (InLoT) aims at investigating the feasibility of a successful and innovative service in science teaching as a business case, whereby every day activities are effectively associated with scientific enquiry and experimentation. The purpose of the InLoT service is to deepen the science learners' understanding of scientific concepts involved in the activities, strengthen their appreciation of scientific process, and provide science education to diverse populations of future citizens, in forms that will be compatible with many learning contexts. In perspective, the InLoT Service actively supports lifelong science learning, as it sets the foundations on which all children, not only those with a pro-science orientation but importantly also those who are typically less accessed by traditional science education practices (e.g. girls, low achievers, etc.), will build their own understanding of science and the world, and later on, as adults, will pursue a personal and professional life informed by the principles of scientific inquiry and the scientific method. The wider consequences of such a change in Europeans' stance towards science are obvious, ranging from more scientific careers and enhanced employability thanks to mastering some of the core key skills, to more equity and the inclusion of all (women and men, the arts-oriented and the science-oriented) in the scientifically aware, open Information Society that EU strives to build in Europe. The work in the framework of the project will be based on three main axes, a) the utilisation of advanced technologies for connecting the curriculum based activities with everyday life, b) the significance of science education and the development of scientific literate citizens and c) the interoperability and standardization of the developed learning materials in order their use to be exploited in other schools or in other subjects.
