GO-LAB 2018

You are here


The Go-Lab Summer School is specifically designed for teaching professionals in STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). It will introduce to teachers the use of online virtual experimentations and remote laboratories as well as inquiry-based science teaching techniques in order to develop, improve and enhance their teaching skills and practices.

Virtual online labs are a great way to support the development of students’ inquiry skills and help them gain initial scientific experience. Students that have been exposed to the culture of doing science by undertaking interactive, guided experimentation, carried out in renowned scientific facilities and research centers, are more likely to develop a long-lasting motivation and interested in science topics.

The specific objectives of the course are:

  • Introducing STEM teachers to the concepts and skills of inquiry learning-design and demonstrating its various applications in inquiry-based learning activities in the science classroom taking into account different teaching and learning styles;
  • Familiarizing participants with the Go-Lab on-line labs portal and educational digital repositories;
  • Develop teachers ICT skills through the use and application of the Go-Lab tools and services.

The Go-Lab Summers School is designed to be highly engaging and interactive. Participating teachers will work in small groups and thus be able to collaborate with teachers from other countries, discuss ideas and exchange experiences in order to create a group activity which will encompass all the features of a successful inquiry-based multidisciplinary science activity. 

The course will last for 6 days, consisting in total of 25 hours of workshop based training, such as presentations followed by hands-on sessions (10 hours of lectures and demonstrations, 15 hours of hands-on workshops). The lectures and the demonstrations of the training course will be held in an auditorium equipped with a data projector and a laptop, whereas, the workshops will be held in a multimedia laboratory where each participant will have direct access to a PC with internet connection and will carry out planned exercises.

Prior to the course, participants are asked to familiarize themselves with the training topics as well as the course methodology by accessing the relevant resources, materials and tools. Based on their interests they will be invited to participate into one of the working groups each of which will have a different main topic of focus.

As a follow-up to the training course, the participants will be asked to make use of the activities they worked on during the summer school and share their work via the course's website and the Go-Lab community of science teachers.
As members of the Go-Lab community of science teachers participants will have access to support provided by the training team, and they will be able to communicate with other science teachers in European countries, who have a common interests, share their ideas and experience and collaborate in joint activities.


Sunday, 8 July, 2018 to Friday, 13 July, 2018
The programme of the courses will be finalized in March 2018. Until then, in some cases you can download the related 2017 programme.


The  Go-Lab 2018 Summer School is organized by the Research and Development Department of Ellinogermaniki Agogi which has long experience in organizing thematic summer schools and training courses (click here to see the list of past events)



The European Science Education Academy (ESEA) is a common effort of the European Physical Society, Ellinogermaniki Agogi, NUCLIO, and the Cardiff University to support the modernization and continuous development of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education and training. ESEA provides numerous training activities, tools and resources that will enable teachers in STEM to maximize their efforts in the design of inquiry based learning activities as well as to create motivating and engaging lessons that inspire young pupils and students to take up a career in STEM.
