Microsciences demonstration during World Teachers' Day
Sixteen students from the secondary schools Paul Eluard of Châtillon in France demonstrated the UNESCO Global Microscience Experiments Project during World Teachers' Day on 5 October 2012.
The Microscience Experiment is a hands-on science education project that gives primary, secondary and tertiary students the opportunity to conduct practical work in physics, chemistry and biology, using small kits that come with pedagogical materials. These kits are veritable micro-laboratories, are cost effective and safe in so far as students never need to use more than a couple of drops of chemicals for each experiment. The kits are also affordable and far cheaper than conventional laboratory equipment and materials. The small quantities of chemicals used make the methodology environmentally sound.
