Abstract

The project “Little scientists in the lab: Experiments & Models for science learning in primary school”, funded by the Ministry of Education and being currently under development in Italy, is addressed to primary school teachers of the Faculty of Science Education and consequently to pupils. This project proposes a “Model-centered Learning Environment” to build pilot activities for teaching and learning science and physics, based on experimental and modeling activities. The approach for teacher training is to assign group tasks that promote learning.We set up a website to support teachers’ school activities to facilitate and promote communication and exchange of materials between teachers and researchers of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, as well as between the teachers themselves. In this paper, we illustrate the general features of the project and focus on preliminary results of an in-service training for teachers in fluids and electricity.
