Living labs for science education in schools
The living lab is a fresh approach that lets students use outdoor spaces for research and demonstration projects, independently driven projects and new contexts for research and sustainability. It has the potential to change the education process, bringing in engagement, inspiration and a holistic attitude. For this reason, the EU-funded SALL project aims to introduce the living labs methodology in schools as a novel technique for the development of open schooling activities linked to science learning. The project engages in dialogue school communities, research institutions, science museums and centres and spaces of open-learning; together they will construct the living labs schooling methodology. The new approach will be implemented and evaluated in the real-life system, demonstrating its ability to radically change the scene for science education programmes in European schools.
