Next-Lab competition: Learning is more fun when you get a prize!

Are you excited to hear all about our brand new competition?

This year, Next-Lab decided to participate in the STEM Discovery Week 2018 with a very hands-on competition, meant to reward the best class implementation* of the Go-Lab ILSs!

So, if you are organising a class implementation between February-April 2018, then you are eligible to participate to the Next-Lab competition!

The first thing you need to do is to submit your class implementation activity to the STEM Discovery Week’s activities map. In the form, and when asked to, please indicate clearly that you are taking part to the Next-Lab competition.

Once you carry out your implementation, we will get back to you via email with some additional questions regarding the content if your activity, the resources you have used and the impact on your students.

In order to enter the contest, your activity will need to fulfil the following criteria:

  • The submitted class implementation has to take place between March-April 2018
  • Create a new ILS or readapt an existing one for your implementation
  • A minimum of 15 students need to take part to the class implementation

The winner (1) of the Next-Lab competition will be invited to attend the Next-Lab autumn school that will take place in Estonia in September 2018. Flight, hotel and subsidies will be covered entirely by the project.

Looking forward to your submissions!

*  In a class implementation a minimum of 15 students, under the guidance of their teacher, are making use of the entire or parts on an ILS (new or adapted) for the entire duration or parts of their didactic hour.
