IFEN-training for teachers: get ideas for (more) experiments your classroom!

Calling primary school teachers (C2-C4): do you want to make your natural sciences lessons (éveil aux sciences) more interactive and experiment with your pupils? Then sign up for one of our hands-on IFEN-certified training sessions happening soon!   

During a first four-hour in-person training session taking place at the Mr Science Lab near Sandweiler, you will get to know the lesson plans from the section „Ideen für naturwissenschaftlichen Unterricht in der Grundschule“ on science.lu and try out some of the experiments suggested there yourself. Then you’ll have a couple of months to try out some experiments in your classroom and we’ll meet again for a second virtual 1-hour feedback session.  

The above-mentioned section on science.lu offers over 30 complete lesson plans with simple experiments or videos, as well as small science challenges.  They are based on the step-by-step principle of the scientific method, for which, however, neither previous scientific knowledge nor experience with experimentation is necessary.  

These lesson plans were developed by Science Communicators from the FNR together with teachers (“detaches”) and with SCRIPT (Service de Coordination de la Recherche et de l’innovation pédagogiques et technologiques). They are mainly aimed at primary school teachers of cycles 3 and 4 (pupils aged 8 to 12).
