Titel: De Science Challenge : experimentéieren am Damp
La présente formation se focalise sur les “challenges” scientifiques: Une manière d’expérimenter avec les jeunes en ajoutant une compétition ludique. Cette technique fera objet d’un nouveau show télévisé qui sortira en 2023 sur RTL. Partie intégrante de ce show seront des activités pédagogiques qu’on peut répéter facilement dans la salle de classe. Cette formation donnera un Sneak Preview sur quelques activités et aura comme but de tester la faisabilité en classe.
L’accent est mis sur des activités qui ne nécessitent presque pas de matériel spécial, sans se limiter aux activités banales.
IFEN training for primary school teachers
For several years now, the FNR has been developing lesson plans in collaboration with Script to support primary school teachers in their “Éveil aux sciences’ lessons with simple but exciting experiment ideas and video material. The lesson plans also introduces pupils to the scientific method as they are always structure around the same four steps: question/hypothesis – experiment – observation – conclusion. Thematically, they are mostly oriented to the “plan d’études”, so that the experiments or videos can be treated in class as a supplement to the subject matter. FNR Science Communicators together with Script-teachers also offer interactive IFEN-certified training for primary school teachers to get to know these lesson plans and method. Below is a list of the training sessions offered in 2022. Registration is via the IFEN website and opens two months before the respective training.
Title: Loscht op Experimenter? Iddie fir Är Klass (Code D2-b-31)
