A PLACE TO DISCOVER: TEACHING SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY WITH MUSEUMS

A PLACE TO DISCOVER is the first product of the three-year European collaboration project "'School-museum collaboration for the improvement of the teaching and learning of sciences" (SMEC) which began in 2001 with the support of the Socrates/Comenius programme of the European Union.

The project brought together museums and education institutions from six countries, namely:
1. Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia 'Leonardo da Vinci', Coordinating institution, IT
2. Deutsches Museum, DE
3. Institut Universitaire de Formation des Maîtres de Lorraine, FR
4. Istituto Regionale di Ricerca Educativa (IRRE) Lombardia, IT
5. Katholieke Hogeschool Kempen, BE
6. Nationaal Museum van de Speelkaart, BE
7. Magyar Természettudományi Múzeum (National Natural History Museum) HU
8. Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales, ES

The present volume introduces to the project philosophy and educational methodology. The chapters of the book contribute reflections on the use of museums for science (and interdisciplinary) education which can be used effectively and creatively in different contexts of museums, of schools and of countries. The topics and approaches contained in the chapters are of wide variety, ranging from more theoretical discussions to suggestions for practical activities to carry out at school/museum. The target groups are primary school teachers, advisory teachers, teacher trainers and museum educators, not only members of the partner institutions, but more widely professionals in schools, education institutions and museums in each partner and other European countries.
