Teaching science of ageing and disease at primary schools

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in or organising a workshop, seminar, courseAcademic


With help of the organisation ‘Wetenschapsknooppunt Wageningen’ scientific practicals were organized for the children of group 5, group 5/6 and group 6. The class started with a general introduction to science and ageing (Why do some people live longer than others? Which animal reaches the oldest age?). After that the pupils took science into practice by observing nematodes with and without a muscle disorder and discovered effects of such a disorder by themselves. A good first impression of the scientific world!
