The Science Education team of the Science Education and Public Engagement office shares the scientific discoveries of EMBL through inspiring teaching and learning experiences with school science teachers and young people of all backgrounds aged between 10 and 19 years.
Our programmes convey complex, cutting-edge topics in life science research in an exciting and insightful way, fostering the discovery of current research trends, the scientific method, and scientific career paths. Our activities are developed and run in close collaboration with EMBL scientists.
The Science Education team is part of EMBL’s Science Education and Public Engagement office, which leads and coordinates the institute’s science education programmes and public engagement efforts.
Formerly known as European Learning Laboratory for the Life Sciences, ELLS, the office now not only leads the institute’s science education activities but also coordinates its efforts in outreach and public engagement. We are building on EMBL’s long history of science education and public engagement, and support EMBL’s commitment of sharing and discussing our research with young learners, teachers and diverse publics.
