Science Education

Formerly known as European Learning Laboratory for the Life Sciences

Our inspiring educational experiences share the scientific discoveries of EMBL with young learners aged 10-19 years and teachers in Europe and beyond. We belong to EMBL’s Science Education and Public Engagement office.

Molecular biology is an integral part of life sciences curricula throughout Europe. As life sciences research is moving forward at an enormous pace it is very important to have a clear idea of its true scope and its potential to have dramatic effects on society.
