  • Tuncay Şakir, Turkey

    "After the training, I realised I should be a guide for my students to help them construct scientific concepts for themselves. Adopting this new paradigm has made me feel much more comfortable in the classroom. I prepare a suitable environment or classroom atmosphere for my students to ask appropriate questions and find answers by themselves."

  • Barbara Dix, Poland

    "Students are willing to engage in lessons if they can find something to experience, explore or perform an experiment on. They like to show their work on the big board for all to see and compare. They like the follow-up discussion, the problem solving and to understand why the experiment failed. I want to show them that science is around us every day. It is not confined to the laboratory and anyone can be a scientist".
