October 2011, 09.00 - 14.30, MIO-ECSDE

 

The University of Athens, the Association of Greek Chemists and MIO-ECSDE/MEdIES coorganised under the auspices of UNESCO-Hellas, the training seminar «The Global Experiment within the International Year of Chemistry 2011» on the October the 10th 2011, in the premises of ΜΙΟ-ECSDE. The seminar aimed at informing the educational community about the so-called global initiative of UNESCO and IUPAC “Global Experiment” about Water topics (see below). The seminar addressed the educational staff which is able to apply themselves or act as multipliers to the educators concerning the Global Experiment. Some 37 people participated (members of Environmental Educational Centres, School Science Centres, School Advisors, and some school directors) who expressed the wish to apply the Global Experiment within a school project.

The seminar included greetings by the President of the National Committee for UNESCO in Greece, Ms A.Tzitzikosta, the Chairman of MIO-ECSDE, Prof M. Scoullos, the Chairman of the Association of Greek Chemists, Mr G.Arvanites, and Mr V.Psallidas who presented the framework of the meeting and information on the Global Experiment. The participants were divided in two groups and took part in the following workshops:

Measuring water quality

(1) Acidity

(2) Salinity

Water treatment

(3) Water filtration & disinfection

(4) Solar still/distillation

At the end of the seminar the participants were provided with the Chemistry Kits which are necessary for the application of the Global Experiments with students (donation of the UoA).

Generally, the participants evaluated very positively the seminar and provided the organizers with substantial proposals and comments on the educational material for the Global Experiment which has already been developed by the MEdIES Secretariat. Participants appreciated the

participatory process followed during the seminar and the conduction of the experiments. Furthermore, participants regarded that the Global Experiment most applicable Secondary Education and not so in the Primary Education.
