Lab in a Box

CAPE VERDE

The origin of the first “Lab in a Box – Cape Verde” kit dates back to 2016, when the pilot version of the “Lab in a Box” project was first developed, by volunteers from the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC) and the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), with the objective of being implemented in Cape Verde.

Since then, the Lab in a Box (LiB) team has distributed more than 50 kits to Cape Verde schools and carried out 3 Teacher Training courses, having trained about 100 teachers of basic and secondary education in the areas of Natural Sciences and Physics.

SCIENTIFIC
EXPERIMENTS

In addition to all the necessary materials and equipment, each “Lab in a Box – Cape Verde” kit contains two detailed manuals with about 50 experiments in Biology, Chemistry, Ecology, grouped into 43 protocols, as well as 32 Physics experiments, grouped into 14 protocols.

Each experimental protocol can be viewed and downloaded individually, in two versions (teacher and student), or together (complete manual). In addition to the list of materials and procedures, the teacher version includes a second part with expected results, conclusions and notes. In these protocols, many experiments can be carried out separately, naturally respecting the precedents indicated; we suggest some experiments to be carried out together.
