UniSchooLabS aims to promote the use of new technologies and ICT-based services in order to foster teachers’ and students’ competences and skills to live and work in today’s knowledge society and globalised world, and increase the attractiveness of science studies and careers to students.
The project will foster collaboration between universities and schools through an online toolkit which provides teachers with easy access to remote university laboratories. With remote laboratories experimental equipment can be controlled online via a common web browser. Teacher and students will be able to run experiments, collect data and analyze results.
With these new technologies, schools - even those based in rural areas - can access real science experiments and laboratories that would normally be difficult to reach due to their locations, the obsolescence of the equipment, and the limited range of possible experiments.
