Teaching and Dissemination Resources
- Aciertas_Red is a COSCE project aimed at primary school teachers and teachers in the early years of secondary education. It is based on a platform to encourage research-based learning, as well as dialogue and collaboration between teachers. Neuroscientists are invited to present the resources that they have elaborated on the emerging themes selected for the platform: Nanosciences, Neurosciences and Robotics. The project also awards the Aciertas Prizes. For more information, visit the blog and read the leaflet.
- BrainFacts is a platform with resources and information on Neuroscience for students at different levels: www.brainfacts.org
