The “Lab in a Box – Cape Verde” Teacher Training courses are scheduled and carried out by LiB team members on different islands, in partnership with the Cape Verdian Ministry of Education and local partners.

As of 2016, 2 training courses have been held in the city of Praia, Santiago Island, and 1 training course in the city of Mindelo, S. Vicente Island. These heavily “hands-on” training courses were focused on experimental science teaching in grades 7 through 12 (termed “2nd Cycle” Basic Education and Secondary Education), in the areas of Natural Sciences and Physics, and trained about 100 teachers from different islands of Cape Verde.
