The IRRESISTIBLE team from Israel had the honor to participate in the closing exhibition of the IRRESISTIBLE Project in Kiel.  Our team included the four of us, Israeli high school chemistry teachers, along with two science educators from the Weizmann Institute of Science (Figure 1).

The Israeli IRRESISTIBLE team was honored to present its exhibition during the final IRRESISTIBLE meeting in Kiel (See above article for details about this exhibition.).  

At the end of September, 42 teachers, 54 school pupils and 45 members of university and science centre staff from 10 European countries met in Kiel, Germany for the final conference of the European IRRESISTIBLE project.

Almost three years ago, Else Henneke and me, Jolanda van Duyvenbode, started working in the IRRESISTIBLE-project. Together with the University of Groningen, we developed the (now quite popular) teaching module “Carbohydrates in Breast Milk”.

The European Union encourages science education to orient towards the concept of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), i.e. socially and ethically sensitive and inclusive processes of science and technology. RRI is a major cross-cutting issue of the Horizon 2020 programme and a key concept in calls related to science education. Through a number of EU-funded initiatives such as IRRESISTIBLE, RRI is likely to have a substantial influence in teacher professional development and school science across Europe.
