Bristol CETLs help inspire Turkish Leonardo da Vinci Project – 16/03/09

A plan to encourage an increase in practical science in rural Turkey has now become a reality. The Mobilim project is sponsored by the EU and involved both Bristol CETLS (ChemLabS and AIMS) at the start in February 2008, when a group of Turkish education experts visited the University for a fact-finding exercise on science engagement activities which included a look at the Mobile Teaching Unit in action at a Gloucestershire primary school.

Mobilim now has its own mobile laboratory, which will be used to train primary school teachers and also to work with students.
