    European challenges in modern biotechnology education

    The topic of this project is to develop an approach to foster a practical learning in biology and also the biotechnologies applications. The international team counted on the help of Dr. Baron from Fachhochschule Weihenstepham to design their lesson planning. They planned some experiments during the transnational meetings to be developed by some students that acted out as tutors in each school meanwhile the teachers acted out as students performing some common practices. It is a solid and original project that focuses on a subject where motivation is really important, the learning of sciences. They selected a scientific and rigorous methodology to deal with the practice of modern biotechnology, a subject that promotes an interest in the students and in the society in general. This way, the project has let the students develop competences to make decisions on social and ethic topics based on a scientific knowledge. This project has fostered the implication of students and teachers and has let them check what the scientific investigation is in a real context.
