Education launches Experimenta

The Regional Ministry of Education and Vocational Training, through the Educational Innovation Service, is launching the pilot programme Experimenta! Experiments as a teaching tool in Primary Education for the 2022-2023 school year.

The main objective of this programme is to promote the pedagogical and didactic use of everyday scientific experiments in the primary classroom as an educational, formative and participatory tool.

This first pilot edition of the educational innovation programme is aimed at publicly funded primary schools in Mallorca that wish to promote and improve the key STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) skills of their primary school pupils through teacher training and experimentation.

The programme’s teaching team is made up of a group of UIB professors interested in the dissemination and teaching of experimental sciences, who have been working in these areas of science for years.

First edition focusing on knowledge of the natural environment

For this first pilot edition, two of the specific contents related to knowledge of the natural environment have been chosen. On the one hand, the reversible and irreversible changes that matter undergoes and, on the other, light as a form of energy (sources and use in everyday life). Therefore, the titles that refer to the contents of the themes of the workshops in this first edition are:

  • Physical and chemical transformations of matter.
  • Light and its properties.

The registration period will remain open until 23 January through the GESTIB.
