About the website

Welcome to the ESTABLISH project website. 

ESTABLISH is committed to supporting the increased use and sharing of information about Inquiry Based Science Education (IBSE) across Europe.  This website has been designed to support this aim and presents the project’s Teaching and Learning units as exemplary materials to experience the benefits of IBSE together, a series of short self-instructive programmes to guide the development of skills essential and supportive when teaching through IBSE, together with background information about the project, its aspiration and achievements, and not forgetting the people who made it happen.

The website is designed predominately for teachers and teacher educators, however just as during the project’s lifetime we welcome all (scientific, industrial, educational, social communities) who are interested or involved in science or education particularly at second level to browse through our website. 

Each of the resources and programmes have been trialled and evaluated by the teachers across Europe working with the ESTABLISH consortium, so we are confident that you will find these useful to inform your teaching practice. 

The contents has been reviewed by members of the ESTABLISH consortium.  The editorial staff have handled this content with much care, but they do not take legal responsibility for possible mistakes or flaws.
