Greetings Friends:

>From our friend Robert Fisher in Brasil:


Ciênsação (Ciensación/Sciensation) has been developed with the support of
UNESCO Brasil to promote a culture of short hands-on experiments and
skill-fostering science education.

The site serves as a repository of OER on brief research activities –
taking usually less than 10 minutes to complete – that can be easily
integrated into day-to-day teaching in regular classrooms. Instead of
merely illustrating scientific concepts or natural phenomena, these
hands-on experiments come with questions that engage students in evidence
seeking discussions. They are made to encourage critical thinking, an
inquisitive mindset, and to allow students to experience the joy of
discovery. In other words: To teach science as an activity, as a
fascinating art students will be keen to master.

Teachers are invited to publish their own hands-on experiments at Ciênsação
(Ciensación/Sciensation). Submissions that pass the peer-review will be
published as OER in Portuguese, Spanish and English under a Creative
Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License
