ICTP workshop brings technology to science education
What role can low-cost technology play in fostering scientific knowledge? A recent workshop at ICTP on Technology for Sustainable Development: Low-Cost Tools to Support Scientific Education aimed to find out.
Participants came from 17 developed and developing countries and represented various professions--from teacher trainers to science center coordinators to researchers. But they all had one thing in common: a passion for learning, and for sharing their new knowledge with students and teachers in their home countries.
B-PHOTONICS was present to teach the participants about the use of the Photonics Explorer and the toolkits of the PHABLABS 4.0 project.
