LAB IN A BOX

The “Lab in a Box” project arises from the conviction that science can be learned in our daily lives and that, more than a discipline, it is a way of thinking and being in the world.

Created by scientists and science communicators at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, “Lab in a Box” is an educational project that seeks to implement a novel kit of scientific experiments in the classroom. The “Lab in a Box” kit is portable, modular, composed of cheap, common materials, and is especially designed to help teachers and educators grow children’s wonder towards the world around them, their critical thinking ability and their scientific curiosity.
