“Inspiring science for teachers and students” is meant as a contribution to creating more exciting science teaching in public schools and secondary education institutions. In the long term, the purpose is to increase the interest of pursuing a career in science and/or technology among young people in Denmark.
The House of Natural Sciences develops and tests learning activities within four main areas:
- Inspiration for teachers and teacher students
- Thematic days and activity days pupils, such as Engineering Day og Girls’ Day in Science
- Development of new teaching tools and thematic teaching kits, which can be integrated directly in the classroom
- Better communication and marketing of the house’s offerings
The Poul Due Jensen Foundation helped build Naturvidenskabernes Hus in Bjerringbro in 2005 through a 15 m DKK donation.
