EDUCATORS ADVISORY TEAM

ICFO counts on the expertise of a multidisciplinary Educators Advisory Team. We collaborate to develop and improve – Outreach Programmes aimed to bring science closer to students.

EDUCATORS COURSES

ICFO works with High School teachers to keep them up-to-date on the latest technological developments, enabling them with new tools to foster learning and interest for the sciences in their classrooms. Teachers can attend courses through, for example, the Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera “Professors i Ciència” programme. Moreover teachers can order the “Photonic Classroom Kit” through a request via these links: CDEC and/or Servei Educatiu del Gironès.

FEEDBACK

ICFO’s teachers network help us gather educator’s feedback and keep teachers informed about activities, available support materials and other information of interest. Do you want to take part in ICFO’s Educators Network and receive information about Outreach projects? Send us an email
