WELCOME to all Participants in the International Conference on Improvement of Learning of Biology and Other Related Experimental Sciences in the K-12 School Levels Santiago, Chile, April 14-15, 2016 Professor Jorge E. Allende

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of this International Conference, it is a great honor to welcome all the participants and also representing the Institutions that have organized this meeting which are the University of Chile and the Latin American Network of Biological Sciences (RELAB) to thank the generous support that we received from international and Chilean institutions which are sponsoring this meeting which are: The Inter Academy Panel and its Global Council of the Science Education Program of the 105 National Academies of Science in the World, UNESCO and the Regional Office for Education in Latin America and the Caribbean, the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) and the International Center of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB) at the National Level, The Ministry of Education of Chile, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Chile, Our National Research Council on Science and Technology (CONICYT), our National Council for Innovation for Development (CNID) and the Allende Connelly Foundation. We are extremely grateful to the 40 experts to come from 24 different countries and all the continents of planet earth. It is great privilege for us to have you here in Chile. Your bring us your knowledge and your ideas about one of the most fascinating aspects of human society – the process of education – which brings together the acts of teaching and learning in a process in which the donor (the teacher) and the recipient( the student) are constantly interchanging their roles. All of us, who have ever taught, can testify how much we have learned from our students. The great stoic Roman philosopher Seneca said something that is profoundly true “a great part of the joy that we feel when we learn something that is new to us is that we

realize that we can now teach this new knowledge to someone else”. To teach is an act of love to our fellow human beings What do we expect to accomplish in these two days densely packed with lectures, reports, round tables and discussions? We should have a panoramic view of the way in which different countries and regions of our world are confronting the huge task of teaching our new generations some fundamental concepts of the experimental sciences. Why is this task so important? The short answer is that the 21st Century is the age of knowledge and science is the way our civilization has created to gain new knowledge about the Universe and about ourselves. The longer answer is that in that in the 21st century human kind on planet earth will face very critical questions that can only be confronted by new knowledge that will require huge amounts of research in all areas of the sciences and what is even more difficult, we will require to integrate that knowledge to generate comprehensive projects that can cope with multidimensional challenges such as the impact created by climate change, the need to feed properly 9 or 10 billion people, the rapid aging of human populations and the spread of violence, hatred and fundamentalism that divide humanity into warring camps. Science can teach some key values to our children such as love of truth, the importance of team work, the rejection of dogmas, and tolerance and respect for different ideas. Looking at the abstracts of the work that will be presented here by very qualified experts from all parts of the world is possible to see that internationally we

7

are reaching a consensus that indicates that Inquiry Based Sciences Education (IBSE) in which children learn sciences by doing science, in which they actively re-discover scientific concepts by testing them with experiments has been accepted in many countries as a way of improving the learning and teaching of experimental sciences. This consensus is important but there are still many problems that confront us with the challenges of scaling –up IBSE projects. For this reason we have made a topic of one of our Round Tables. We are all convinced of the necessity for international collaboration to improve our learning and teaching of science, but the sad truth is that there is a derth of financial resources to support this collaboration. This is another topic that will be discussed in another round table. (RT B) The French Project of “La Main a la Patê” is a wonderful example of what we can achieve by international collaboration supported by strong national project. The lecture of Prof. Pierre Léna will present us the great achievements of this program both at the national and international level Professor Léna has been constantly supporting us in Chile in our efforts to establish our Chilean IBSE project and “La Main a la Patê” has been the source of much valuable information and guidance in the long process of introducing this approach for the benefit of our children. Obviously as a famous astronomer, his love for Chile started with the stars. The Interacademy Panel (IAP), which brings together 105 National Academies of Sciences have undertaken the task of international collaboration and has created a Global Council to guide the efforts in four regions of the world: The Americas represented by the Inter American Network of Academies of Science (IANAS), the African Network of Science Academies, The Asia Pacific Network of Science Academies and the European Science Academies which, of course, are highly advanced in their integration due to the existence of the European Union. We must thank Professor Dato Lee Yee Cheong of the Malaysia the present Coordinator of the Global Council of the IAP Science Education Program for the excellent idea of sponsoring this International Conference by programming the mee-

8

ting of the Global Council of the IAP Program here in Santiago on April 16. In this Conference in the morning of April 15th Dr. Yee Cheong will deliver a lecture on the future of this Global Council and we will also hear reports about the function of different networks of academies that are collaborating in that network The design of the teaching-learning modules and the testing of those materials is a big effort that needs the joint participation of scientists and educators but also requires time and money. Round Table C would like to discuss how we can work together and make a pool of those educational resources and make them available to all interested parties. Round Table C is specifically focused on the topic of environmental protection and mitigation of the impacts of climate change: This is due to the urgency of the need to advance as rapidly as possible in this subject, but what we can propose in this topic could be extrapolated to other areas of the experimental sciences. But there are other important problems in the implementation of IBSE internationally. One of the great questions is that of assessment. How can one measure the real impact of IBSE on student learning? We don’t have a Round Table on this but we have included two lectures one by Carol O’Donnell, Director of the Smithsonian Center for Science Education. She has some very interesting results of the impact of IBSE in the learning of science by the students in the United States. The second lecture is the closing lecture that will be delivered by Professor Wynne Harlen which will explore the types of assessment that can be used and how they can help the learning process. Dr. Harlen has also be a constant source of knowledge and inspiration for our efforts. Another key point in extrapolating IBSE educational projects at the national level is sustainability. Obviously national governments and their Ministries of Education have to be involved in national types of projects (In Federal countries this is extrapolated to State Governments). However, in many countries, especially in the developing world, education ministers change rather frequently and new authorities have different priorities. This may cause serious interruption in the IBSE projects. For that reason it is important for the educational projects to diversify their sources of support to include non-government organization or

Foundations and local governments (municipalities) to be able to have sustainability which is an important requirement for educational programs. The lecture of Dr. Nathalie Von Siemens in our Conference will give us a striking example of a private Foundation that is supporting this type of educational projects in several countries together with local institutions. In Chile the Siemens Foundation has been very active in collaboration with our University and other institutions Finally, another great problem that we face is the fact that in general the scientific community and the educational communities that include the science teachers of K-12 grades have very little interaction. This is very negative situation since both communities need each other to be able to carry out their mission of achieving science literacy in all countries whose societies value what science can do for them. The Inaugural lecture by Dr. Bruce Alberts deals with this from the side of the commitment that Sciences Academies, Universities and Scientific Societies should demonstrate by working together with the teachers in order to improve science education at all levels. Dr. Alberts is an inspiring person who is a great scientist but has demonstrated by his deeds this commitment dedicating himself to science education at all levels with tremendous energy and perseverance. In his position as President of the U.S. NAS and as Editor in Chief of Science, he has also directed those key institutions to increase their efforts in this direction. He has been a constant supporter of our efforts in Chile and his presence here demonstrates this to us once again.

We are very optimistic that this Conference will help us to build working partnerships between scientists and science teachers. What provides us with this stimulus is the fact that since we opened the Registration for the Conference only three weeks ago, we have received more than 200 requests to register here and 80% or more of those registered are either science teachers or university students studying to be future teachers. This makes us very happy because we are attracting the people that can play the key role in improving science education and that can work together with the scientists to achieve this ambitious goal.

BIENVENIDA a todos los participantes en la Conferencia Internacional para el Mejoramiento del Aprendizaje de la Biología y Otras Ciencias Experimentales Relacionadas en los Niveles Escolares de Parvularios a Educación Media Santiago, Chile Abril 14-15, 2016 Profesor Jorge E. Allende a nombre del Comité Organizador

Es para mí un gran honor saludarlos y darles la bienvenida, a nombre del Comité Organizador de la Conferencia a todos los participantes. También a nombre de las dos instituciones organizadoras que son la Universidad de Chile y la Red Latinoamericana de Ciencias Biológicas (RELAB) queremos agradecer el generoso apoyo que nos han otorgado instituciones internacionales y chilenas que nos han dado su patrocinio y que incluyen al : Panel Inter Academias (IAP) y su Consejo Global para el Programa de Educación en Ciencias de las 105 Academias Nacionales de Ciencias del mundo del IAP; también está la Oficina Regional de Educación para la América Latina y el Caribe de la UNESCO, con sede en Santiago; la Unión Internacional de Bioquímica y Biología Molecular (IUBMB) y el Centro Internacional de Ingeniería Genética y Biotecnología (ICGEB). A nivel nacional nuestros patrocinantes son el Ministerio de Educación en Chile, el Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores de Chile, nuestra Comisión Nacional de Investigación Científica y Tecnológica (CONICYT-Chile), el Consejo Nacional de Innovación para el Desarrollo (CNID) y la Fundación Allende Connelly.

gran filósofo romano de la Escuela de los Estoicos, Seneca, ha expresado en una de sus cartas algo que es profundamente verdadero. “Gran parte del gozo que sentimos cuando aprendemos algo que es nuevo para nosotros es un anticipo de la alegría que sentiremos cuando podamos transmitirle ese nuevo conocimiento a otra persona” Enseñar es en realidad un acto de amor hacia nuestros semejantes

También estamos profundamente agradecidos con los 40 expertos internacionales que han aceptado venir a Chile a participar en esta Conferencia provenientes de 24 países diferentes en 4 grandes continentes. Es un gran privilegio para nosotros tenerlos aquí en Chile. Uds. nos traen sus conocimientos y sus ideas relacionadas con uno de los aspectos más fascinantes de la sociedad humana – el proceso de educación que incluye los actos de enseñar y aprender en los cuales el donante (el profesor) y el recibidor (el estudiante) están constantemente intercambiando sus papeles. Todos nosotros que hemos alguna vez enseñado podemos dar testimonio sobre lo mucho que hemos aprendido de nuestros estudiantes. El

Una respuesta más larga es que en este siglo XXI la raza humana en el planeta tierra va a enfrentar temas muy críticos que van a necesitar nuevos conocimientos que van a requerir enormes cantidades de investigación en todas las áreas de las ciencias incluyendo ciencias sociales y humanidades y lo que es aún más difícil, va a requerir la integración de todos estos conocimientos en amplios proyectos que sean capaces de lidiar con desafíos multidimensionales como el impacto causado por el Cambio Climático en nuestro Medio Ambiente, la necesidad de adecuadamente alimentar entre 9 y 10 billones de seres humanos, el rápido envejecimiento de nuestras poblaciones y la expansión de la violencia, el odio y de los fundamen-

¿Qué esperamos lograr en estos dos días atiborrados de conferencias, informes, mesas redondas y discusiones? Espero que al final de la Conferencia hayamos logrado tener una vista panorámica de la manera como los diferentes países y regiones geográficas están enfrentando la enorme tarea de enseñarle a las nuevas generaciones algunos de los conceptos fundamentales de las ciencias experimentales ¿Por qué es esa tarea tan importante? La respuesta rápida es que el siglo XXI es la era del conocimiento y la ciencia es la manera que nuestra civilización ha creado para generar nuevos conocimientos sobre el universo y sobre nosotros mismos.

talismos que dividen a la humanidad en grupos que se enfrentan en una horrible guerra. La ciencia sirve para enseñar algunos grandes valores a nuestros niños como el amor a la verdad, la importancia del trabajo en equipo, el rechazo a los dogmas y la tolerancia y el respeto a las ideas y creencias diferentes. Mirando los resúmenes de las propuestas que van a ser presentadas en esta conferencia por expertos altamente calificados de todas partes del mundo, es posible concluir que internacionalmente estamos llegando a un consenso que nos indica que la metódica de educación en Ciencias Basada en la Indagación (ECBI) en la que los niños aprenden ciencia haciendo ciencias, en la que re-descubren conceptos científicos comprobándolos por medio de Experimentos, ha sido aceptada en la mayoría de los países como una metódica que mejora el aprendizaje y la enseñanza de las ciencias experimentales. Este consenso es importante pero todavía hay muchos problemas con temas que nos surgen, por ejemplo, los desafíos de hacer un escalamiento de proyectos que usan la metódica ECBI. Por esa razón hemos tomado ese tema que sea discutido en la Mesa Redonda A en el segundo día de la conferencia. Todos nosotros estamos convencidos de que necesitamos la colaboración internacional para lograr mejorar la enseñanza y aprendizaje de las ciencias experimentales, pero la triste realidad es que hay una seria escasez de recursos financieros disponible para apoyar esta colaboración internacional. Este es otro de los temas que discutiremos en la Mesa Redonda B. También el Programa Francés, llamado “la Main a la Patê” es un magnífico ejemplo de un programa nacional que ha sabido alcanzar una dimensión internacional. La Conferencia que dictará el Profesor Pierre Léna en la tarde del 14 de Abril nos mostrara los grandes logros de este programa tanto a nivel nacional como internacional. El profesor Pierre Léna ha sido un magnífico apoyador en todo lo que hemos hecho en Chile para introducir la metódica ECBI en las escuelas de nuestro país. El Programa La Main a la Patê también ha sido una

fuente de información y de asesoría para resolver los problemas que hemos encontrado. Obviamente que, como astrónomo, su amor por Chile llegó siguiendo a las estrellas en nuestros diáfanos cielos. El Panel Inter Academias (IAP), que reúne a 105 Academias Nacionales de Ciencias de todo el mundo han asumido la colaboración internacional y ha creado un Consejo Global Internacional para coordinar los esfuerzos de las academias reunidas en cuatro regiones geográficas: Las Américas representada por el Inter American Network of Academies of Sciences (IANAS) o la Red Interamericana de Academias de Ciencias; La Red de Academias de Ciencias de África; La Red de Academias de Asia-Pacífico y la Red de Academias de Europa la que, obviamente, está mucho más avanzada en su integración por contar con el respaldo de la Unión Europea. Debemos agradecer mucho al Profesor Dato Lee Yee Cheong de Malasia, quién es el presente coordinador del Consejo Global del programa de educación en ciencias del IAP por la excelente idea de patrocinar esta Conferencia y por programar la reunión de este Consejo Global aquí en Santiago el sábado 16 de abril. Esto nos ha permitido contar con todos sus miembros. En la mañana del 15 el Dr. Yee Cheong va a dictar una Conferencia sobre su visión del futuro del Consejo Global y también en esa sesión escucharemos breves informes sobre el funcionamiento de las diferentes redes regionales de academias que están armando proyectos conjuntos. Otro tema clave es el diseño de módulos de enseñanza aprendizaje y la validación de su idoneidad probándolos en las salas de clases. Esto es una tarea que requiere el trabajo conjunto d científicos y educadores expertos en el currículum. Esto también requiere tiempo y financiamiento. La Mesa Redonda C del día viernes 15 estará dedicada a discutir cómo se puede trabajar en conjunto y cómo podríamos recolectar esos recursos pedagógicos para ponerlos a la disposición de todos los interesados. Pero esa Mesa Redonda tiene una tarea específica que está focalizada en el tema de la protección del medio ambiente y la mitigación del impacto negativo del cambio climático. Esto se debe a la urgencia que tenemos de avanzar en este campo en

11

las próximas décadas. De todas maneras las conclusiones que se pueden sacar de esta Mesa Redonda son posibles de extrapolar, para generar módulos teórico-prácticos para otras áreas de las ciencias experimentales. Pero también hay otros problemas importantes que es necesario resolver cuando queremos implementar la metódica ECBI en una dimensión internacional. ¿Cómo es posible evaluar el impacto de esta metódica en lo que realmente nos importa como es el aprendizaje de los niños y jóvenes estudiantes? No tenemos una Mesa Redonda para discutir esto, pero si tenemos dos conferencistas excelentes que se referirán a esto: Una de ellas es Carol O’Donnell, Directora del Centro del Smithsonian Institution para la Educación en Ciencias. Ella va a relatar unos resultados muy interesantes que recientemente han obtenido sobre el impacto que ha tenido la metódica ECBI en el aprendizaje en ciencias de un gran número de estudiantes en varios estados de los Estados Unidos. La segunda conferencia es la Conferencia de Clausura que va a ser dictada por una de las expertas más connotadas en el campo de la Educación en Ciencias, la Dra. Wynne Harlen del Reino Unido. Ella hablará de los diferentes tipos de evaluación y como estos pueden ser usados para potenciar el proceso de aprendizaje. La Dra. Harlen atmbién ha sido una constante fuente de conocimientos y de inspiración en nuestros proyectos de educación e Chile. Otro punto relevante sobre la instalación de proyectos tipo ECBI en una dimensión nacional o internacional es el de la sustentabilidad. Obviamente, los gobiernos nacionales y sus Ministerios de Educación debieran ser participes muy destacados en proyectos a nivel de países (en Estados Federales este involucramiento pudiera hacerse a nivel de los gobiernos estatales). Sin embargo, especialmente en países en desarrollo, los Ministros de Educación son frecuentemente cambiados y con frecuencia las nuevas autoridades tienen diferentes prioridades lo que puede afectar la continuidad de los proyectos educacionales que requieren de largos años de implementación para mostrar efectos medibles. Por esta razón es muy importante que los proyectos educacionales diversifiquen sus fuentes de financiamiento, incluyendo organizaciones no gubernamentales, Fundaciones

12

o gobiernos municipales. Esta diversidad de apoyo le otorga a los proyectos sustentabilidad que es fundamental para todos los proyectos educacionales. La Conferencia de la Dra. Nathalie Von Siemens en nuestra reunión nos va a presentar un estimulante ejemplo de una Fundación privada que está apoyando este tipo de proyectos educacionales en varios países de América Latina y África y que está colaborando con las instituciones en los diferentes países. En Chile la Fundación Siemens está activamente trabajando con nuestra Universidad y otras instituciones. Finalmente hay otro problema bastante básico que consiste en el hecho que, en general, hay poca comunicación entre la comunidad científica y las comunidades de educadores que trabajan en la educación en ciencias de los niños entre parvularios y educación media y por ende colaboran poco. Esta es una situación muy negativa pues las dos comunidades necesitan de la otra para lograr el objetivo de conseguir que todos los países haya una valoración de las ciencias y de lo que el conocimiento científico puede aportar a su desarrollo cultural y socio-económico. La Conferencia Inaugural del Profesor Bruce Alberts precisamente consiste en un llamado a la comunidad científica incluyendo a las instituciones que las congregan: Academias, Universidades y Sociedades Científicas a comprometerse a trabajar con los profesores y docentes para que en conjunto podamos avanzar en el mejoramiento de la calidad de la educación en ciencias. El Dr. Alberts demuestra con su vida que él es congruente con su predica pues ha llegado a los más altos lugares con su ciencia, la biología molecular ganando la Medalla Nacional de Ciencias de Estados Unidos el año 2014 pero habiendo hecho una labor notable a favor de la educación en ciencias. Siendo autor principal del texto de biología molecular más usado en el mundo y como Presidente de la Academia Nacional de Ciencias de ese país por 12 años ha involucrando a esa institución en la propuesta de Estándares Nacionales en Ciencias que identificaron los conocimientos científicos que los estudiantes de los diferentes niveles debieran manejar y después como Editor en Jefe de la Revista Science otorgando prioridad a la educación científica en esa revista. Por más

de 15 años el Dr. Alberts ha también sido un valiosísimo apoyador de los esfuerzos que las Universidades y la Academia Chilena de Ciencias han hecho para introducir la metódica ECBI en Chile. Su presencia en Chile en nuestra reunión es una muestra de su constante apoyo. Finalmente quiero transmitirles el optimismo que sentimos que la Conferencia que hemos organizado será útil para establecer un fecundo diálogo entre las comunidades científicas y educacionales en nuestro país. La razón de este optimismo que en las pocas semanas que hemos abierto la inscripción para esta Conferencia ya hemos inscrito a cerca de 200 personas y el 80% de ellas son o profesores o estudiantes de pedagogías en ciencias - precisamente el público que queremos atraer.

Afectuosamente, Jorge E. Allende

BRUCE ALBERTS Bruce Alberts, a prominent biochemist with a strong commitment to the improvement of science and mathematics education, was awarded the National Medal of Science by President Barack Obama in 2014. Dr. Alberts served as Editor-in-Chief of Science (20082013) and as one of President Obama’s first three Science Envoys (2009-2011). He is now the Chancellor’s Leadership Chair in Biochemistry and Biophysics for Science and Education at the University of California, San Francisco, to which he returned in 2005 after serving two six-year terms as the president of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS).

During his tenure at the NAS, Alberts was instrumental in developing the landmark National Science Education standards. The type of “science as inquiry” teaching we need, says Alberts, emphasizes “logical, hands-on problem solving, and it insists on having evidence for claims that can be confirmed by others. It requires work in cooperative groups, where those with different types of talents can discover them – developing

self confidence and an ability to communicate effectively with others.” Alberts is also noted as one of the original authors of The Molecular Biology of the Cell, a preeminent textbook in the field now in its sixth edition. For the period 2000 to 2009, he served as the co-chair of the InterAcademy Council, an organization in Amsterdam governed by the presidents of 15 national academies of sciences and that was established to provide scientific advice to the world. Committed in his international work to the promotion of the “creativity, openness and tolerance that are inherent to science,” Alberts believes that “scientists all around the world must now band together to help create more rational, scientifically-based societies that find dogmatism intolerable.” Widely recognized for his work in the fields of biochemistry and molecular biology, Alberts has earned many honors and awards, including 16 honorary degrees.

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

The Responsibility of Scientists -- and their Science Academies, Universities, and Scientific Societies -- in improving the Learning of Science at the K-12 school levels Bruce Alberts, Chancellor’s Leadership Chair in Biochemistry and Biophysics for Science and Education, University of California, San Francisco

The internationally accepted, modern view of science education calls for much less emphasis on the memorization of science facts and terms. Instead, the focus is on providing empowering experiences in problem-solving that increase both students sense-making abilities and their understanding of the world. This type of hands-on, inquiry based science education can serve as a core from which meaningful math, writing and reading lessons are also generated.

Teachers at the K-12 level can only be expected to teach science as inquiry if they have experienced scientific inquiry themselves. And all adults need to experience and appreciate science as a special way of knowing about the world. The introductory science courses in college must therefore emphasize this type of science learning -- moving away from the traditional lecture in which students have only passive roles. The type of improvements in science education that we need will take decades to accomplish, and they will require that scientists and their institutions become deeply and permanently engaged in catalyzing change.

También se ha propuesto la visión de Educación Científica para una nueva ciudadanía, en el contexto del desarrollo sostenible.

3. Se realizó un homenaje a más de 250 estudiantes de 12 centros educativos del país, que participaron del Proyecto YUNGA Costa Rica, una iniciativa que promovió la formación de agentes de cambio dentro de la sociedad costarricense en temas como biodiversidad, el cambio climático y la seguridad alimentaria.

En consecuencia, la incidencia ciudadana que debe estimular el centro educativo, respalda la prosperidad y bienestar social, mediante procesos de: •

Participación activa



Compromiso y negociación entre los diferentes autores inmersos en cada centro y comunidad.



Cambio de actitud de las personas para transformar la idea de una institución educativa aislada.

Y una organización que contemple el aporte de grupos colaboradores, tanto dentro como fuera de ella. En general, se ha venido realizando una reformulación de los programas de estudio de Ciencias, con el componente de la Educación para el Desarrollo Sostenible y se ha ambientalizado el calendario escolar con las fechas importantes a través del año en que se celebran eventos relacionados con la biodiversidad y el desarrollo sostenible. Aparte de la temática que se incluye formalmente en las aulas, el Ministerio de Educación Pública ha desarrollado diferentes actividades específicas para estimular a los estudiante mediante proyectos ecológicos, homenajes, concursos etc. que estimulan la participación y la concientización en temas de cambio climático y conservación. Ejemplos: 1. El proyecto Eco Cultura 2015, realizado en ocho centros educativos en San José, para la recuperación de envases valorizables de plástico y aluminio mediante el uso de dispositivos de alta tecnología en las instituciones, conocidos como Sistema de Depósito Inteligente (SDI). 2. Los estudiantes de secundaria del país ya pueden encaminar sus colegios hacia la carbono neutralidad inscribiendo sus proyectos ambientales en concursos promovidos por el Ministerio de Educación Pública (MEP) y el Ministerio de Ambien-

4. El MEP participa en el proyecto Bandera Azul Ecológica. Cuenta con una categoría particular para centros educativos. Hay asesores de todos los circuitos escolares que guían el proceso de postulación de las instituciones, generan además alianzas de trabajo con ONG´s y otros centros de la comunidad. Se forman clubs en las escuelas, como “Guardianes del Agua“ . El MEP también trabaja con otros organismos como la UNESCO y la Fundación Omar Dengo en implementar acciones que favorezcan el conocimiento y la enseñanza de temas relacionados con la biodiversidad , el desarrollo sostenible y el cambio climático. Aparte de las acciones propias del MEP, existen asociaciones con organismos nacionales e internacionales que trabajan estrechamente en actividades sobre los temas de desarrollo sostenible y conocimiento y protección de la biodiversidad. Entre estos organismos están la UNESCO y la Fundación Omar Dengo Sobre el tema del Desarrollo Sostenible, la Comisión Costarricense de Cooperación con la UNESCO, a través de las Escuelas Asociadas a la RED-PEA se han venido implementando acciones que por su contenido, se han constituido en un significativo aporte, no solo para las escuelas y colegios asociados a la REDPEA, sino para las familias y comunidades de donde procede la población estudiantil. Entre estas actividades se pueden citar: - Capacitaciones sobre la agricultura con abonos orgánicos, en el marco de la declaración del Año Internacional de la Agricultura Familiar, - Con motivo del fenómeno del cambio climático, sus consecuencias y por estar vinculado al tema

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

Portable Laboratories that allow secondary school students to carry out sophisticated experiments to learn Molecular Biology -Professor Jorge E. Allende, ICBM, Facultad de Medicina Universidad de Chile- Co-President of Corporación RELAB Our laboratory has a long history of organizing theoretical and practical courses for doctoral and postdoctoral students in the techniques of molecular biology (1968-1993 – 15 courses). In the 1990’s the field of molecular biology was introduced in the secondary school curriculum and there was a great need to teach this new chapter to the secondary school teachers. With the important help of Kenna Mills Shaw, a Fulbright Scholar and Héctor Díaz and Valeria Sabaj from the ICBM, we ran the first course for secondary school teachers in 1998. This was followed by courses in Chile, Argentina, and Costa Rica with the support of RELAB and UNESCO. These courses were well received by the teachers detected a problem. The teachers could not reproduce in their school the

most interesting and most effective part of the learning which was the experimental part. We had the idea in 2001 of solving this problem by the use of portable laboratories that could visit the schools but it took us 10 years to implement this solution. In 2011, RELAB applied to a Program of the Wellcome Trust which supported the transfer to society of the advances of the life sciences. Our project involved 3 countries with their respective Universities : México with the UNAM, Costa Rica with the University of Costa Rica and Chile with the University of Chile. This project proposed to organize in these countries a one week training course in molecular biology and genomics for secondary school biology teacher. The

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

innovation consisted in the fact that the teachers that passed the course could request from their respective Universities a visit of a portable laboratory so that the students could do in their school the experiments. The majority of the funds of the Wellcome Trust were used to purchase the three portable laboratories. The equipment in each laboratory was able to handle 30 students simultaneously and the experiments required 4 sessions of 3 to 4 hours. We, the molecular biologists of the three countries agreed on 4 fundamental concepts that would be covered by the course. The course would then explain the history of how those concepts came to light and included experiments that could be done to demonstrate the validity of those concepts.We first ran a pilot course in Santiago with Secondary school teachers and with the help of observers from México and Costa Rica who helped to re-structure the activities. In the pilot period in Chile during 2013, 2014, 2015 we have organized 3 courses that trained approximately 80 teachers and have so far visited 27 secondary schools with approximately 750 students doing the four experiments in the portable laboratory. If one divides the cost of the equipment (US$ 10.000) by the number of students that have used it the expense is very low – per student that is around $ 13 dollars which is much less than the price of a molecular biology text book. e www.laboratoriosportatiles.cl we have collected the opinions of the teachers, secondary school students and doctoral students that accompany the portable laboratories to the school and help the teachers in setting up the experiments and discussing the results with the secondary school students. The overwhelming majority of the opinions from all three groups are very positive about the experience of being able to do experiments that clearly validate one of the fundamental concepts that the students are supposed to learn. You will see that in the two other countries that started with the project the results are also very promising. These results confirm something that is well known in the educational literature, the fact that to do experiments greatly facilitates comprehension of scientific principles by students. For this reason we have decided to try to sca-

le-up this project in Chile and fortunately our Ministry of Education has agreed to work with us this year in the increased coverage. We have the agreement of 8 other Universities that are joining the University of Chile in this project. There are 2 Universities in the Santiago Region (USACH and UMCE), and 6 other Universities in 6 other Regions of the Country (U. Antofagasta, U. La Serena, U. Católica de Valparaíso U. de Talca, U. de Concepción y U. Austral de Chile). We expect that in the second semester of this year we will be organizing 8 courses for about 200 biology teachers and we should be able to visit 40 secondary schools and expose around 1200 secondary school boys and girls to the experience of the portable laboratories. In addition, 8 of the 9 Universities have undergraduate programs that train secondary school biology teachers. These students will receive training using the molecular biology module as part of their undergraduate course. This means that when they graduate and have a position as a teacher, they will be able to request visits of the portable laboratory to their schools without taking the course. As can be seen in the following presentations, the project is also spreading to other countries in Latin America, Uruguay, Brazil, Panamá and possibly Perú. But the scaling up is not only geographical, RELAB with the support of UNESCO and CONICYT has generated two more modules in other important chapters of Secondary School Biology: Proteins and Enzymes and Fertilization and Early Animal Embryo Development. These modules have been tested through courses for biology teachers offered in January 2016 by the Universitiy of Chile and we are planning that by the end of 2016, we will have 5 or 6 modules and possibly by the end of 2017 we can reach 8 modules which we think can give our secondary school student a fair representation of the Biology of the 21st Century. Our dream is to use this approach to cover not only biology but also all the other experimental sciences: chemistry, physics, Earth Sciences and Astronomy. For what we need a lot more work and more funding.

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

Mesa redonda C: Generating Modules to teach pre-University Students about environmental preservation and mitigating the impact of Global Climate Changes “Inclusión de la biodiversidad y cambio climático en la educación formal costarricense” Dr. Gustavo Gutiérrez Espeleta Dra. Ana Victoria Lizano Umaña Escuela de Biología, Universidad de Costa Rica

Antecedentes en Costa Rica: Al ser Costa Rica un país en el que la biodiversidad es parte de la vida cotidiana, este tema siempre se ha incluido dentro de los conceptos de enseñanza en escuelas y colegios. Sin embargo, acciones más concretas y estructuradas se vienen implementando más recientemente. Por ejemplo, desde 2005 se incorporó el eje transversal “Cultura Ambiental para el Desarrollo Sostenible” en el currículo formal de la educación general básica. •



En primaria, mediante ejes temáticos específicos como “Los seres humanos somos parte integrante de la naturaleza“. En secundaria, introduciendo ejes temáticos más amplios, como “La Biodiversidad y los inventarios de las formas de vida“.

Para cada tema se definen objetivos, valores y actitudes que permitan la formación de competencias. También se ha propuesto la visión de Educación Científica para una nueva ciudadanía, en el contexto del desarrollo sostenible. En consecuencia, la incidencia ciudadana que debe estimular el centro educativo, respalda la prosperidad y bienestar social, mediante procesos de: •

Participación activa



Compromiso y negociación entre los diferentes autores inmersos en cada centro y comunidad.

42



Cambio de actitud de las personas para transformar la idea de una institución educativa aislada.

Y una organización que contemple el aporte de grupos colaboradores, tanto dentro como fuera de ella. En general, se ha venido realizando una reformulación de los programas de estudio de Ciencias, con el componente de la Educación para el Desarrollo Sostenible y se ha ambientalizado el calendario escolar con las fechas importantes a través del año en que se celebran eventos relacionados con la biodiversidad y el desarrollo sostenible. Aparte de la temática que se incluye formalmente en las aulas, el Ministerio de Educación Pública ha desarrollado diferentes actividades específicas para estimular a los estudiante mediante proyectos ecológicos, homenajes, concursos etc. que estimulan la participación y la concientización en temas de cambio climático y conservación. Ejemplos: 1. El proyecto Eco Cultura 2015, realizado en ocho centros educativos en San José, para la recuperación de envases valorizables de plástico y aluminio mediante el uso de dispositivos de alta tecnología en las instituciones, conocidos como Sistema de Depósito Inteligente (SDI). 2. Los estudiantes de secundaria del país ya pueden encaminar sus colegios hacia la carbono neutralidad inscribiendo sus proyectos ambientales en concursos promovidos por el Ministerio de Educación Pública (MEP) y el Ministerio de Ambiente y Energía, especialmente para junio, mes del Ambiente. 3. Se realizó un homenaje a más de 250 estudiantes de 12 centros educativos del país, que participaron del Proyecto YUNGA Costa Rica, una iniciativa que promovió la formación de agentes de cambio dentro de la sociedad costarricense en temas

como biodiversidad, el cambio climático y la seguridad alimentaria. 4. El MEP participa en el proyecto Bandera Azul Ecológica. Cuenta con una categoría particular para centros educativos. Hay asesores de todos los circuitos escolares que guían el proceso de postulación de las instituciones, generan además alianzas de trabajo con ONG´s y otros centros de la comunidad. Se forman clubs en las escuelas, como “Guardianes del Agua“ . El MEP también trabaja con otros organismos como la UNESCO y la Fundación Omar Dengo en implementar acciones que favorezcan el conocimiento y la enseñanza de temas relacionados con la biodiversidad , el desarrollo sostenible y el cambio climático. Aparte de las acciones propias del MEP, existen asociaciones con organismos nacionales e internacionales que trabajan estrechamente en actividades sobre los temas de desarrollo sostenible y conocimiento y protección de la biodiversidad. Entre estos organismos están la UNESCO y la Fundación Omar Dengo Sobre el tema del Desarrollo Sostenible, la Comisión Costarricense de Cooperación con la UNESCO, a través de las Escuelas Asociadas a la RED-PEA se han venido implementando acciones que por su contenido, se han constituido en un significativo aporte, no solo para las escuelas y colegios asociados a la REDPEA, sino para las familias y comunidades de donde procede la población estudiantil. Entre estas actividades se pueden citar: - Capacitaciones sobre la agricultura con abonos orgánicos, en el marco de la declaración del Año Internacional de la Agricultura Familiar,

1. Propiciar un espacio en el que los participantes profundizaran y fortalecieran sus conocimientos sobre dicha temática. 2. Integrar el contenido de la sostenibilidad en el proceso de aprendizaje de los niños y adolescentes, de manera que interioricen el contenido de la Carta de la Tierra, como marco ético rector en temas de biodiversidad, reconocido por la UNESCO en la Educación para el Desarrollo Sostenible. 3. Incorporar del tema sobre Patrimonio en Manos de los Jóvenes, integrando d i versas materias entre ellas Turismo y Medio Ambiente, como tema prioritario. Para su abordaje se capacitó a 62 docentes que participan de la RED-PEA. El objetivo fue dotarlos de información y desarrollar destrezas con ellos que puedan a su vez reproducir en las aulas, utilizando los contenidos vistos en las materias de clase. Además, el Despacho Académico del MEP efectuó el año pasado un trabajo conjunto con la oficina Multipaís de la UNESCO- Costa Rica. En acciones coordinadas con los asesores de la Dirección de Desarrollo Curricular, se elaboró un mapeo relacionado con el tema de la biodiversidad en los programas de estudio vigentes. Con la Fundación Omar Dengo, el MEP trabaja en estrecha colaboración en diferentes ámbitos. Está por ejemplo la participación en la iniciativa GLOBE •

GLOBE es un programa educativo internacional de ciencias para primaria y secundaria. Su propósito es apoyar a estudiantes y maestros para que colaboren en investigaciones científicas y desarrollen el pensamiento científico por indagación. Se imparte en forma de clubes científicos en varios colegios públicos integrados al Programa Nacional de Informática Educativa MEP-FOD.



En materia de módulos educativos, la Fundación Omar Dengo se destaca, con programas como Gestores Ambientales **

- Con motivo del fenómeno del cambio climático, sus consecuencias y por estar vinculado al tema de la Acción del Ser Humano sobre el Ambiente, se capacitó sobre la Prevención de Riesgos y Resiliencia en situaciones de desastre. - Al ser la Sostenibilidad un tema prioritario de la Carta de la Tierra, se capacitó a docentes en esta materia, con el objetivo de:

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

** El proyecto se desarrolla en escuelas públicas que integran el Programa Nacional de Informática Educativa MEP-FOD, y busca que los estudiantes realicen procesos de investigación que les ayuden a comprender las posibles consecuencias ambientales de algunas prácticas cotidianas y a emprender acciones para mejorar el medio ambiente. Se trabaja por medio de la narración digital utilizando el lenguaje SCRATCH. Propuesta para crear módulos educativos para la enseñanza de conductas pro-ambientales hacia el cuidado de la biodiversidad y el medio ambiente. El concepto clave de Módulo educativo nace del modelo educativo constructivista, una estrategia de enseñanza-aprendizaje. Es un material didáctico interactivo que contiene todos los elementos necesarios para el aprendizaje de conceptos y destrezas al ritmo del estudiante, sin el elemento presencial continuo del docente o instructor. Partes del módulo educativo: •

Introducción (conocimientos previos, objetivos, esquema de contenido, secuencia de aprendizaje)

Para diseñar un módulo adecuado al objetivo: Al diseñar el módulo se tienen en cuenta los objetivos del milenio, pues debe armonizar con los objetivos del desarrollo sostenible y ayudar a justificar la necesidad de desarrollar módulos que fortalezcan competencias en el área. El objetivo a lograr es: Garantizar una educación inclusiva, equitativa y de calidad y promover oportunidades de aprendizaje durante toda la vida para todos. Meta: •

Para 2030, garantizar que todos los alumnos adquieran los conocimientos teóricos y prácticos necesarios para promover el desarrollo sostenible, mediante la educación para el desarrollo sostenible y la adopción de estilos de vida sostenibles, los derechos humanos, la igualdad entre los géneros, la promoción de una cultura de paz y no violencia, la ciudadanía mundial y la valoración de la diversidad cultural y de la contribución de la cultura al desarrollo sostenible.

Conclusión Costa Rica ha asumido con mucho interés y responsabilidad el reto de introducir los temas de conocimiento de la biodiversidad, sostenibilidad y consecuencias del cambio climático en la educación formal, desde los jardines de infantes hasta la educación secundaria. Para esto ha capacitado a sus docentes, ha desarrollado diversas actividades extracurriculares y ha realizado alianzas estratégicas con diferentes organizaciones, de manera que se tome conciencia de la importancia de los retos a asumir para lograr el respeto a la naturaleza.

date, the portable laboratory has been implemented in two high schools at UNAM, involving around 200 teenagers with spectacular results. The project has an enormous potential, since we have both the equipment and the human resources, the teachers who have taken the courses, to develop it. Currently, we have an $11,000 USD/year UNAM-grant approved for 3 years in order to propose and develop new actualization courses and the workshops that educators will teach to their own high school students. We consider that encouraging young people to appropriate the scientific method will provide them with better tools to face the challenges they will meet, regardless of the study area in which they specialize.

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

First Portable Laboratory RELAB course in Molecular Biology and Genomics for Secondary School Teachers in Curitiba, Brazil. This course had as target teachers of the Secondary Schools of Curitiba City Paraná State. The aim was to upgrade teachers that would request a portable laboratory of Molecular Biology and Genomics to visit their schools in order to stimulate young students to pursue a carrier in Biological Sciences. The course was advertised through printed material and via the Internet site of our Federal University of Paraná. Only in Curitiba there are 198 Secondary Schools. On the whole the course had 195 registrations with 83 from Curitiba. Teachers from 28 cities of the interior of the State of Paraná and from 13 other Brazilian State also applied for the course. Forty candidates from Paraná State were selected according to pre-established criteria, and 26 attended the course. The course took

place in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of our University in the week of 25 to 29 of January -2016, and was taught by 10 Professors and 10 Pos Docs. The course was very well evaluated by the students and they were indeed very pleased with the opportunity to have an upgrade in the subject and to do practical lab work. Five School have already applied for a visit of the Portable Laboratory. The course received full support from the higher administration of our University and another course is planned for the second semester. This was a fulfilling experience for all involved. The Pos-docs were very excited with the perspective of teaching and are available for the visits to the schools and the next course.

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION



Since 2006, I have been working with a teaching program that utilizes an indagatory strategy, de-

Panama organized the first seminar and workshop for nine teachers from three schools of the Province of Chiriquí, which included topics on molecular biology and genetics. The teachers who were trained will complement their theoritical courses in their schools with experiments using the portable molecular biology lab. The National Secretariat of Science, Technology and Innovation (SENACYT) made a partnership with the Universidad Autonóma de Chiriquí (UNACHI), who showed a special interest in the development of this program since this región has a great biodiversity and agricultural production. This partnership will allow stu-

52

dents to get to know and value scientific careers that the university offers, and thus, awake their interest in studying these disciplines. In the first phase of the Project, which will begin in the second trimester of the school year, the students will visit the university with the teachers, and will be coached by UNACHI´s specialists in molecular biology and genetics to develop experiments. Student´s hands on experiencia will begin during the second trimester of the school year. Once the Project is finished, the results will be analyzed, looking forward to extending it to other regions.

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

Biotechnology in secondary schools : An intensive course for teachers and portable laboratories (Jorge Tenorio) Dr. Daniel Guerra

The new standards in secondary education as well as the current scientific and technological development , demand a solid preparation of teachers to cultivate skills related to science and technology in schools. The teaching of biotechnology is a medium capable of consolidating fundamental scientific understandings of physics, chemistry and biology at the same time that empowers the student in their ability to make informed decisions about their environment, food and health. Practical experience of directly manipulating the molecules of life using advanced technological tools and mobilizing scientific principles applied in the everyday world , has the ability to produce the sense of wonder it takes to value science as something close , powerfully useful and attractive. The practical experience of directly manipulate the molecules of life using advanced technological tools and mobilizing scientific principles that apply in the everyday world, has the capacity to produce the sense of wonder that is needed to assess the science as something close, powerfully useful and attractive. The gap between the classroom and the few Peruvian institutions that develop national biotechnology may seem insurmountable. This project proposes the

high school teacher as the main mediator between the scientific world and the student tip. The teacher will be trained in an intensive course given by a select group of researchers among the best specialists in the country, expecting a sustained over time multiplier effect. We also propose a program of support for teachers to be able to replicate their experience in their respective schools. In the course will encourage the curiosity of the master will be reviewed fundamental concepts of molecular biology and will practices in which directly will make use of the concepts to solve real-world problems. The laboratory practices may be transferred to the schools of the participating teachers through the use of portable laboratories and the support of staff of the universities. This project includes three phases. The first comprises the preparation of the course, which includes the consolidation of the syllabus , enlisting scientists who teach teachers and standardization of laboratory practices . The second phase is the implementation of the course for teachers, that includes from the convening of these, until the evaluation. The third phase is the transfer of the course to students of secondary schools; in this pilot project is intended to reach two colleges and measure the impact of the activity of the students.

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

Crazy about Science: Igniting passion for science through a model mentoring programme in Catalonia Joan J. Guinovart Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona). The Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology. Barcelona, Spain

In the autumn of 2012, the Institute for Research in Biomedicine extended a special invitation to students across Catalonia in the final two years of their high-school studies to apply to a new programme, Crazy About Biomedicine, that would allow them to spend their Saturdays in our research laboratories and learn about our science directly from PhD students themselves. More than 400 students applied and 24 were selected to participate. They spent the next year learning about the research projects underway in the labs and doing hands-on practical work, using the latest cutting-edge equipment available at IRB Barcelona. Now in its fourth year, Crazy About Biomedicine has proven to be a great success for students and scientists alike. It has allowed students interested in scien-

54

ce to explore innovative projects, get a taste of what research in a real lab is like, and ignite their passion for the biomedical sciences. Our PhD students, who serve as mentors, have a valuable opportunity to develop their communication and teaching skills and help set their students well on their way to a career in the biomedical sciences. Participants from the first year of Crazy About Biomedicine are now enrolled in science degrees at universities across Catalonia and beyond and they provide advice and guidance to students joining the programme, with the aim to establish a solid network that will accompany those who have participated in Crazy About Biomedicine throughout their scientific careers. The Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera, a local foundation committed to supporting science education and which supported the pilot phase of the project, has now extended the programme, now called Crazy About Science, to cover eight research fields, including biochemistry, economy, physics, mathematics, nature, new technologies and chemistry, at research institutes and universities across Catalonia, thus providing opportunities for nearly 200 students each year.

Schülerlabore (non-formal laboratories) – A German invention Prof. Dr. Petra Skiebe-Corrette Head of the Schülerlabor Natlab Head of TuWaS! an inquiry-based science education program in schools Department of Biology, Chemistry and Pharmacy Freie Universität Berlin, Germany

Schülerlabore (German) are non-formal out-of-school laboratories where school students perform experiments themselves. These laboratories were founded as a result of Germany’s ranking in the PISA and OECD studies and in response to the declining number of students electing to study the “hard” sciences

such as chemistry, physics and mathematics. They are not limited to science but also include technology, engineering and business knowledge. The first of these laboratories were founded in the beginning of the 90s; today there are about 320 within Germany. The aim of these laboratories is to increase children’s interest in science and also technology by providing hands-on activities in an authentic environment thus giving a realistic and modern view of science and technology. The children that visit can be primary or middle school pupils or high school students. Often Schülerlabore cater to multiple grades, seldom to all grades. Entire classes are able to visit most science laboratories. In addition to pupils and school students, Schülerlabore also target student teachers and tea-

chers by being involved in pre- and post-service professional development. These laboratories are mainly located at universities and research institutions, but they can also be found in science centres, museums or industry. In order to learn from each other and to better lobby, local networks of Schülerlabore were formed, as well a national association (LernortLabor - Bundesverband der Schülerlabore e.V.). One of the first regional networks that was founded is called GenaU (Gemeinsam für naturwissenschaftlich-technischen Unterricht, Together for science and technology education), which includes 15 different Schülerlabore from Berlin and Brandenburg (two of the 16 states in Germany). A substantial number of Schülerlabore are also integrating education for sustainable development into their programs to demonstrate the power science and technology have to shape the future.

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

The Green Chemistry Experience N.Sbarbati Nudelman (University of Buenos Aires, Argentine) Green chemistry was defined as a set of principles to design a safer product, with a process preventing the use of toxic reagents and producing the smaller amounts of waste materials. But, at present, sustainable chemistry goes beyond those goals including other issues, such as: the energy economy, the emission’s reduction, the atom economy, the use of renewable energies, the reduction in fossil fuels and organic solvents, the use natural products as alternative sources, the E-factor greenish of an industrial process, the sustainable use of agrochemicals, biofuels and biocatalysts, etc. The experience of the Argentine Academy of Sciences in offering theoretical-practical courses on these subjects, for secondary school teachers goes back to more than 10 years ago, the

60

first one at a Latin American scale took place in 2004, since then more than 30 courses/workshops have been offered. Teachers and students like this kind of environmentally friendly chemistry, that also includes visits to local industrial plants. The letter from the Academies to the WS of Rio+20; several of the UN SDGs for the 2016-2030 period; the FAO’s Program for Food Security to all by 2030; the “Laudato Sii” P. Francis encyclical; the 2015 CCC Paris’s agreement, and the “Children as agent of change”’ initiative in the 2015 Workshop in the Vatican Pontificia Academy of Science; show that the Sustainable development is not only a matter of science; it is a catalyst for change, an innovative approach to problem-solving and a long-term solution to global sustainability challenges. This requires a radical redesign of our social behavior. and “bottom-up” voluntary actions, education is essential for achieving both!.

Reyes Pilar Directora Programa ECBI Universidad de Chile Telephone number + (562) 2681 2378 [email protected] Chile

Pilar Reyes is Executive Director of the Inquiry Based Science Education Program of University of Chile in Santiago from 2007 to date. She graduated as a Biology teacher in 1989 at the University of Concepción. She is Master in Science Education, and was awarded the Ph.D in Education from the University of Warwick , England in 2001. She received the President of the Republic of Chile Scholarship grant from MIDEPLAN. Her line of research is dedicated both to teaching and learning inquiry science for general education and professional development of teachers; which is performed through the process of appropriation of the inquiry approach for science education in order to establish professional learning communities. Currently, she is leading the process of improving the quality of education in different Chilean districts and schools. A big operation is going on with Catemu and Panquehue district areas in the fifth region. This task started in the second half of 2010 with two schools and 300 children. Since then, the program has expanded to 100% of public schools in both districts, which include 150 teachers and 2,000 children. This has no been done in isolation but with the cooperation of scientists from the University of Chile, executives

from Anglo American Company and two local leaders from the community to provide high quality science education for all children. Since 2009, she has been mentoring the team of Toconao school teachers, in order to promote the quality of science education. From these experiences, she has been able to see changes in children, from rote memory learning (with traditional teaching methods) to effectively enjoy learning. She has observed children asking questions, proposing explanations and predictions, conducting investigations, making observations, and interpreting and communicating their ideas based on evidence. In addition, children recognize their emotions and motivations that allow them to improve through active participative learning. She has also been able to see changes in teachers which include constructing a teaching and learning model, and applying it with consistency. At the is present she is working to sustain school improvement by articulating and communicating among different levels of leadership the importance to promote critical thinking in children, professional development to teachers and building strong network with stakeholders.

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

Inquiry based science education (ECBI) and its impact in school improvement. The case of Toconao – ALMA & Catemu, Panquehue – ANGLO American - Chile Pilar Reyes, Ph.D. in Education. [email protected]

There is consensus at different levels that the achievement of a more equitable access to scientific knowledge requires improving the quality of science education in schools. This new deal between science and schools has a great potential to promote the changes that are required to improve the quality and equity of education.

The community from Toconao School supported by ALMA Observatory, as well as the public schools from Catemu & Panquehue supported by Anglo American Chagres Sur, has encouraged the implementation of the “Inquiry-Based Science Education Program (ECBI, Spanish acronym)”, from the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Chile, to ensure our children get high quality science education. Chilean Inquiry Based Science Education Program (ECBI), is fully motivated by the challenge of contributing and making progress in primary science by implementing the systemic approach. In this context of

61

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

inquiry science education, the belief is that children in Chile will be able to experience an education that is focused on learning, by respecting their individuality, by offering them developing spaces and by helping them to work with their classmates and adults in order to prepare them for lifelong learning. We are convinced that primary schools need teachers that are able to offer learning opportunities to children in a collaborative atmosphere, that can foster communication, creativity, critical thinking and develop their capacity to solve problems. This requires to re-think how children currently learn, to prepare teachers consistently, and to face the responsibility with commitment. The program is inspired by the belief that high quality science education is important for all children. Effective science education is expected not only to expand children’s understanding of the natural and material world, but also to stimulate their curiosity, introduce them to the practice of scientific inquiry and prepare them for total participation in society. It is anticipated that effective science education will contribute to the full expression of children’s creative potential, improving their quality of life and that of their community. The process of working in Toconao School, and in all the publics school from Catemu and Panquehue, has given us evidence of the changes that have been taking place. Children are more autonomous, they have developed their scientific skills, such as questioning, predicting, observing, interpreting, and communicat-

62

ing both oral and written arguments. They have said that “all Chilean children have the right to learn good quality of science”. The team acknowledges the need to connect teacher’s professional development to students learning. In this sense, we have been able to observe that 52% of teachers from schools are conducting inquiry lesson, 36% of teacher’s conduct pre-inquiry lessons and 12% of teachers are reluctant to change. With the first group we are promoting to share their experiences to the second group and work collaboratively, meanwhile with reluctant teachers we are offering them direct help from a member of ECBI program who has been specially trained to facilitate the adoption of this methodology. Parents are welcomed to participate in public lessons, where children show their parents what they have been learning. Parents feel excited with these results. Consequently, the ECBI mission in Toconao, Catemu & Panquehue schools is inspiring. Teachers are cultivating their motivations to teach inquiry science; and they are being helped with new professional skills to teach science. This is not an easy task, but it is challenging. Schools are progressively becoming learning communities; teachers are working with the focus on children’s learning, and understanding that collaboration is a key aspect to improve. Teachers are developing more positive relationship with other members, and leadership is being develop at all levels in order to facilitate interaction between people and institutions.

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

A systemic approach for IBSE implementation in Italy

Anna Pascucci ANISN – National Association of Natural Science Teachers

I will present the key elements, strategies and results of the system architecture of the Programme Scientiam Inquirendo Discere – SID. The programme Scientiam Inquirendo Discere (SID) has created a systemic model for IBSE implementation in Italy via Continuing Professional Development (CPD) of Science teachers. It started in 2011 as a collaborative National Programme between the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei and the National Association of Natural Science Teachers (ANISN). It is supported by the Ministry of Education and some local Foundations. SID was developed profiting from previous Italian experiences and initiatives, but its roots stem

64

from the experiences and results of the participation of ANISN in the Fibonacci Project (FP7) and from a continuous cooperation with the French Académie des sciences and the Foundation La main à la pâte. The programme has a multilevel organization with local operational nuclei called “ SID pilot centres” to provide partnerships with networks of schools and promotion of community practices in Science. In five years ten pilot centres have been created in the main Italian regions/cities (Milan, Turin, Venice, Pisa, Rome, Naples, Bari, Potenza, Messina, Sassari). They are hosted by Universities, Research Institutions or local Academies and represent reference centers for multilevel IBSE training courses for teachers and trainers from primary to secondary school. SID main activities concerns: 1. periodic in presence training courses for teachers both at local, National and International level; 2. peer to peer supporting actions in presence and online; 3. development of resources and kit boxes for classroom activities; 4. Twinning between pilot centers to support the implementation.

After five years the SID programme has achieved important strategic objectives. It has created an effective model of cooperation aimed for IBSE implementation in Italy, strengthened international collaboration and produced innovative training model, a huge

amount of resources and materials ( kit-boxes), the active involvement of over 1500 teachers and 70.000 students and it has created a solid system with 10 pilot centers, 14 local responsible of pilot centers and 70 trainers.

He participated in the implementation of the ECBI Program in Southern Chile. This was the first initiative in IBSE in Chile. In parallel with this he joined academic work in the professional development and in the design of specialization exercises connected with careers in science education. Afterwards, he joined the public service participations in initiatives linked with the Agency for

International Cooperation (AGCI) of the Chilean government. This was a Program for Education and Social Cohesion co-financed by the European Union and the Chilean Government that had the objective of achieving scientific literacy and citizenship among the students .

The ICEC is an initiative of the Ministry of Education of Chile that has the objective to improve the quality of the teaching and learning of the Natural Sciences in Public Primary School through the implementation of Scientific inquirí as an educational approach. The ICEC Program is being implemented in collaboration with 13 Chilean Universities that are located in 11 Regions of the country and is centered on a model of professional development of teachers that aims at the improvement of the quality of the science education in a local context that strengthens the role of the teachers and aims to the attainment of autonomy in deci-

sions dealing with the teaching and learning of sciences. The model includes, for the first time in Chile, a process of capacity building in the didactics of sciences in which of pre-kinder teachers together with teachers that work in primary and secondary education. It is hoped that this approach will foster the formation of Regional Learning communities which with the support of the University of that Region will generate a systematic, space of reflection collaboration and professional development that has the objective of improving the science education in that Region

Presently in addition to his academic work, he is part of the team of natural sciences in the national coordination of basic education in the Ministry of Education. This is the team that is managing, among other things, the implementation of the Program of Indagación Científica para la Educación en Ciencias, of which he is the academic coordinator.

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

Smithsonian Science Education Center’s Assessment of the Inquiry Based Science Education Method in Science Learning: The Role of ISBE in Developing Global Talent The challenges of the 21st Century require global talent educated to think critically, acquire new knowledge, and produce and apply creative solutions. As the only formal education unit of the Smithsonian Institution, the Smithsonian Science Education Center has been transforming the teaching and learning of science for all students for more than 30 years. Our world class science curriculum (Science and Technology Concepts™) brings the science, history, art, and culture of the Smithsonian into science classrooms all over the world. In this talk, I will share with you the results of a recent 5-year randomized control trial (RCT) longitudinal study completed in 2015 that stress tested the Smithsonian’s curriculum and Leadership and Assistance for Science Education Reform (LASER) model in rural North Carolina, Houston Texas and Norther New Mexico of the United States. Unlike other programs that focus exclusively on one aspect

68

of reform, such as curriculum or teacher professional development, the LASER model takes an integrated systemic approach to teaching science that includes five elements: (1) Professional Development, (2) Inquiry-Based Science Education (ISBE) Curriculum, (3) Assessment, (4) Materials Support, and (5) Administrative and Community Support. This rigorous study involving 60,000 students demonstrated the efficacy of STC and the LASER model in increasing student achievement across diverse regions. Results show increases in student achievement in science, math and reading, including gains by students who are economically-disadvantaged, English Language Learners, and students with special needs. With these results, the Smithsonian Science Education Center is ideally positioned to apply proven strategies that increase student achievement worldwide.

pâte in France (1996), an action of the French Academy of sciences aimed at renovating science education in primary, then in middle schools. He became the first president of the Fondation La main à la pâte (2012), and succeeded (2008) J. Allende as Chair of the InterAcademyPartnership, Science Education Program. He has extensively published on these actions. Home page: http://perso.lesia.obspm.fr/pierre-lena/

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

La main à la pâte in France and beyond : past and future. I. La main à la pâte began in 1996, at the initiative of Georges Charpak and the Académie des sciences in France, aiming at primary school science education. Lessons from 20 years of activity, in France and beyond, will be presented. First, the principles. Second, the strategy of successive ruptures in primary school teaching, at the beginning of middle school (Gr. 6 & 7), at the in-service teacher training. These ruptures were carried as prototypes, to be evaluated, proposed and relayed by institutional generalizations. Third, the numerous collaborations beyond France, leading to exchanges and dissemination of IBSE practices. Positive assessement of these steps provided a strong impact on the national policy, as well as inspiring international cooperations. II. The world is changing, school as usual is no longer possible in front of the challenges affecting the youth : poverty, migrations, wars and refugees, climate change and sustainable development issues, but also digital revolution and ethical questions to science. IBSE principles remain entirely valid, but have to be deepened and possibly expanded to cope with these new challenges, on line with the development of big ideas. How can teachers be better prepared, especially at distance ? How can youngsters be better associated ? How can the scientific community continue to contribute ? Some exemples of new domains or actions explored by La main à la pâte will be given.

If you are not a speaker in the tentative program, but have been invited to participate and you plan to intervene in one of the parallel Round Table Discussions, also give us a biographical sketch and a brief summary of your presentations. P. Léna was initially planned in Round Table B, at his wish. But at the moment, (March 9th), there is no other Lamap person able to attend Table C, at which we have informations to communicate. Hence Pléna will go to Table C, unless an additional person is found. Summary : Since several years, La main à la pâte has developed, for primary school teachers, modules contributing to environmental issues, based on IBSE principles : Oceans, Climate, Natural disasters, Eco-mobility, Eco-housing, Biodiversity, while some others are related to health issues. The contents and method to implement and disseminate these modules shall be presented.

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

“InterAcademy Partnership (IAP) Science Education Programme (SEP) and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2016-2030” By Academician Dato Ir. (Dr) Lee Yee Cheong, Malaysia Chair, IAP SEP Global Council/Chair, Governing Board, UNESCO International Science Technology and Innovation Centre for South-South Cooperation

The speaker will outline the strategy and action plan of the IAP SEP in relation to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially the Education SDG No. 4 “Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote life-long learning opportunities for all”. Although Science and Technology are not mentioned in any SDG, the speaker will demonstrate that without S&T, most SDGs will not be achieved by

2030. It is therefore important that science education should vertically start from pre-school through school and college to life-long learning. It should horizontally cover all the subject matters and targets of all the SDGs. Evidence based approach is key. To get the world community to adopt evidence based life-long education,  IAP SEP must get the most powerful international and regional organisations on board. Such organisations are UNESCO, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank with China’s “One Belt One Road” programme as core and hopefully the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).   See you  Yee Cheong

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

THE AEMASE INITIATIVE (GIANCARLO VECCHIO, ALLEA SE WG CHAIR AND ACCADEMIA NAZIONALE DEI LINCEI,ITALY) AEMASE is an intercontinental initiative of Science Academies in the geographical African-European-Mediterranean (AEM) area, a region that shares strong and ancient political and scientific links. At the origin of the idea of the AEMASE Conferences is the strong desire of some national Academies to help improve formal and informal science education (SE) as part of their mission: the partner Institutions involved in this initiative have been the French, Italian, Moroccan and Senegalese Academies and the Egyptian Bibliotheca Alexandrina. The primary goal of the Conference was to bring together key players that share an interest in promoting science education, specifically the renewal of SE founded on the inquiry-based science education methodology (IBSE). In the long term, the AEMASE partner institutions, which come from all three geographical areas, seek to contribute to the steady development of quality science and innovation systems by focusing on stimulating and supporting the future generations of researchers and innovators.The first AEMASE Conference was held on 19 - 20 May 2014 in Rome at the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei. The Conference gathered 75 representatives from 32 countries, some also from countries not pertaining to the geographical African-European-Mediterranean (AEM) region. One of the main objectives of the Conference was also that of bringing to the attention of

political and educational authorities the importance of improving science teaching and learning in developed and developing countries, as a means for sustainable development.The same AEMASE partner Institutions, which organized the 1st AEMASE Conference in Rome in May 2014 at the Accademia dei Lincei, had decided to hold alternate Conferences in Europe and in Africa. The second AEMASE Conference was held in Dakar, Senegal, from the 12 to the 13 of October 2015, by the courtesy of the Academie des Sciences et Techniques du Sénegal (ANSTS). The Conference has gathered scientists expert on science education from different countries:Senegal,Benin,Burkina,Cameroun,Morocco,Nigeria,Tanzania,South Africa, Tunisia, Italy, France, UK, Germany, Hungary, Belgium, Argentina and Sri Lanka. The Conference ended with the approval, by all participants, of a Dakar Declaration which called on all countries in the AEM Region to urgently implement and consolidate IBSE/STEM/ SBC Education programs and on Academies and the Ministries of Education to rethink science education programs to include new ways of teaching and learning. Both Conferences were sponsored by three international networks of academies: IAP (the global network of science academies), ALLEA (All European Academies) and NASAC (Network of African Science Academies).

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

Creating Digital Class for Adopting 21 st Century Curriculum within Southeast Asia Context Records of achievements in Asian region countries in the subjects of Science and Mathematics have shown uneven and irregular trend, on the other hand these two subjects have own characteristics to cater a curriculum that truly addresses the realities and requirements of the 21st Century. For this reason, an action research on adopting on 21st Century Curriculum in the Context of Southeast Asia has been proposed. The research will involve the use of ICT that will allow speedy and efficient transmission of Science and Mathematics contents and teaching-learning materials in the form of ‘Open Educational Resources’ (OER) The focus of the research was on identifying learning domains in Science and Mathematics to formulate regional standard of teaching and learning that are generic to all Southeast Asian countries, and are re-

presentative of the realities of the region considering technology, national policies, learning contexts and conditions as well as accommodate the regional vision of becoming a fully-integrated community. Base-line study was conducted in form of Diagnostic Test for mapping student readiness in Mathematics and Science learning. The study was conducted during September-October 2015, targeted student year 5 and year 8 in Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, Timor Leste, and Vietnam. The Ministry of Education from each participated country assigned their respective schools and students to take part in the diagnostic test. The test items (High Order Thinking questions) , the platforms and also implementation of the tests were collaboratively prepared and executed by SEA-

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

MEO SEAMOLEC, SEAMEO QITEP in Mathematics and SEAMEO QITEP in Science. The result showed that in general the cognitive level of students both year 5 and year 8, was dominated by C1 and C2 (refer to Revised Blooms Taxonomy) in which reflected to the ability for simple problems and communication. They were relatively lack of capacity in analysis and drawing conclusion, difficult to apply the principal of science and maths into the real world (innovation). However in term of readiness, students year 8 much better in preparation of learning science and maths compare with student year 5. The result of Diagnostic test was presented during SEAMEO High Official Meting (HOM) in November 2015 and seeking support and consistent commitment from Ministry of Education of SEAMEO member countries to conduct further step that were intervention study and validation study.

78

The data of the Diagnostic Test, can be seen as a starting point in which the country can be referred to enhance student’s cognitive competency in Science and Mathematics, as one of fundamental aspects in 21st Century Curriculum beside intrapersonal competency and interpersonal competency domain. Adopting 21st Century Curriculum is one of the priority areas of SEAMEO Education Agenda 2015-2035 that has been agreed by the MoE of member countries to adopt in their national education framework. This Action Research will cater not only the Priority Area number 7 but also Priority Area number 2 for establishment a borderless education in which ICT as platform usage in this program and Priority Area number 5 for Teacher Education Reform as this will integrate with the teacher continuing development program. Having said that, the continuous supports and consistent commitment from Ministry of Education of SEAMEO Member countries is necessity to conduct further phases on this program and to conceptualize the philosophy of the 21st Century Curriculum that education for life and work.

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

Global Young Academy and Science Game for School Children Orakanoke Phanraksa, Co-Chair, Global Young Academy There are many tools and a number of ways to promote science and science education. To promote greater science, top young scientists went ahead and founded the Global Young Academy in 2010 with an aim to be the voice of young scientists from around the globe. Currently, there are 200 GYA members from all disciplines working under three different research themes, one of which is called the “outreach program”. Under this theme, the GYA has been running a number of outreach activities to promote science and technology for young scientists and school children. Among others, the science game called “Ex-

pedition Mundus” is one of the key programs that has been introduced by the Dutch Young Academy since 2011 and currently is available in English language. The game shows the children that science is not about knowing a lot but rather about curiosity, creativity, and logical thinking. The game starts with a story about three scientists who discover the planet Mundus and get to know its inhabitants, the Mundians. With that, the children would have an opportunity to try to answer all types of questions about Mundus by investigating pictures, texts, and other sources. The game is being distributed online and through “science nodes” at universities. More than 1,200 primary schools have received their copy and enjoy the journey of learning science.

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

Outline of Scaling Up Round Table Discussion Topic 1: Key stakeholders that are important to the sustainability and scaling of a project. Who are they and what are their importance to the project? • Teachers • Administrators • Community partners • Scientific community • Business community • Political and social leaders Topic 2: Building Awareness and gaining advocates to scale your program. Who are the individuals that you need to gain support from in order to scale your project? • Political leaders (centralized education system) • Ministry of Education (centralized education system) • State and district leaders (decentralized education system) • Social leaders (important for all educational systems)

Topic 2: Building capacity to support the scale up of a program. What organizations can support the growth of a program and what need do they fill? • Teacher preparation programs • Scientific community • Outside collaborators Topic 3: Changes to a program that are sometimes necessary to scale a program. What are the considerations needed when evaluating the viability of scaling a program? • Resources- both financial and human capital • Interest for a broad audience- some small pilots are so narrowly focused and regionally contextualized that they are not of interest to others. • Identification of non-negotiable elements of your program- when scaling a project some elements of it may need to change, but it is also important to identify the elements that can not change or the program could lose its efficacy.

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

Using assessment to help learning in science The key point of this presentation is that if we are to achieve the overall objective, of “achieving a higher degree of science literacy in all countries”, then we need to make changes, not only in curriculum content and pedagogy but in how we conduct and use assessment of students’ learning. The two main purposes of assessment – to help learning (formative) and to record and report learning outcomes (summative) – are often seen in opposition to each other. In some circumstances, this is indeed the case, with the formative purpose losing out to the pressure to measure outcomes for various reasons. But a close look at the nature of formative assessment shows that the actions and decisions involved are integral to inquiry-based education and consistent with what is known about how learning best takes place. Thus it is essential that summative assessment practice su-

pports rather than inhibits the practice of formative assessment. In this presentation it is proposed that this can be done if data for summative assessment are derived from evidence gathered during teaching and learning and used in the process of formative assessment. Not only does such an approach mean that formative assessment is required, but that summative assessment can encompass the full range of goals that are the aims of science education in the 21st century. These include the understanding and competencies needed for personal fulfillment, employment, citizenship and social responsibility that conventional tests and examinations are unable to address. The challenges of implementing such an approach to assessment are considerable, but need to be faced if we are to avoid science education reform from being held back by outmoded assessment policies and practices.

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

A necessary convergence Ricardo Ehrlich Facultad de Ciencias, Sección Bioquímica y Biología Molecular Institut Pasteur de Montevideo URUGUAY

The preparation of the new generations to assume the future is one of the main responsibilities of communities and nations. Science is deeply related to this commitment. Each new stage requires renew, deepen and strengthen the links between science and society, as advances in knowledge cannot be dissociated from the construction of full citizenship. Our societies and our international contexts present profound inequities in many different orders. The distances in access to knowledge and education of quality present very important asymmetries that compromise our common future. In this perspective, the scientific communities, considered as communities of knowledge without any barriers amongst them, are called to take on new responsibilities in relationship with the society and, particularly, to strengthen their commitment with education at all levels. Remarkable and valuable efforts are currently in progress in different regions, countries and institutions,

linking science and education, oriented to learning and development of capacities and citizenship through increasing closeness with science. They have had diverse - in magnitude and continuity - governmental and/or international support. The coordination of the efforts of the various spaces and communities of knowledge in that direction appears as a key to strengthen and enhance the work. But, a crucial element is to increase and coordinate national and international support. There is a redundancy of programs and specificities of international organizations and agencies concerned by this problem. As in living systems, redundancy may be necessary and beneficial if there is an adequate coordination and complementation to ensure that efforts converge, optimizing the use of resources. The presentation will be focused - from a perspective from Latin America and the Caribbean - on the need and feasibility of the convergence of efforts, which appears –despite numerous initiatives - shy and elusive so far, and on the urgency to reinforce the investment in the link between science and education. Our scientific communities have an enormous potential to contribute to assume the today’s challenges in education. This contribution is also essential for the advancement of science and its applications.

The IAP Science Education Programme The IAP Science Education Programme (SEP) was established in 2003by Jorge Allende (Academia Chilena de Ciencias, Chile). Allende served as the first chair of the SEP Global Council, and has since been succeeded by Pierre Lena (Académie des sciences, France) who served from 2010-2013, and the current chair, Dato Lee Yee Cheong (Academy of Sciences Malaysia). The Global Council brings together science education experts and practitioners from around the globe, as

well as representatives (as observers) of IAP’s regional affiliated networks in Europe, Africa, the Americas and the Asia/Pacific region. Among its activities, the IAP SEP organizes biennial conferences, organizes regular national and regional workshops, publishes documents on science education and best practices, and releases declarations that call for greater efforts from national governments and the international community to improve STEM education, especially through the implementation of inquiry-based science education (IBSE). Indeed, along with the sharing of experiences and success stories between nations and regions, the promotion of IBSE has been at the core of IAP SEP activities since its inception.

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

Roundtable B Discussion Summary The role of science academies in fostering global cooperation and sharing knowledges of Science, Technology and Innovation, especially science education

duty of enhancing science literacy relies on informal science education channels, namely science communications in a broader sense.

Global challenges are well documented in 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. Unlike MDGs, SDGs stress the importance of Economy and Society on top of Environment. It is quite true,without economc (green) growth, cleaner environment is hardly guarranteed. And, I believe, economic development depends mostly upon education (science education, in particular) of the people,

Science communications can be effectively achieved by sharing already existing science knowledges through good adaptation,  transfer, diffusion, and optimization to local and/or regional conditions. This is why IAP (InterAcademy Partnership), the Global Network of Science Academies, can play a pivotal role with IANAS, AASSA, EASAC and NASAC. Global Agencies such as UN

Of course, formal science education is very important, but it stands for only 25%. The remaining 75%

have every reason to fund IAP SEP programs of bridging the knowledge gap of IAP member academies.

MIGUEL ALLENDE Dr. Allende was trained as an undergraduate at the Catholic University in Santiago in the field of Biology. He carried out his thesis in Cell-Molecular Biology with Dr. Nibaldo Inestrosa performing studies on the role of intermediate filaments in neural development and disease and graduated in 1988. He then entered the PhD Program in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania and worked with Dr. Eric Weinberg, where he undeertook a thesis project using a newly arrived model organism at that time, the zebrafish, and graduated in 1994. For the next stage in his carreer, he joined the group of Dr. Nancy Hopkins as a postdoc at the Center for Cancer Research of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MIT. He returned to Chile in 1998, took a position at the Faculty of Science, Universidad de Chile and began his independent career. Since that time, he has been a Professor in the Department of Biology and was promoted to Full Professor in 2010. In 2000, he was awarded a Millennium Nucleus grant that funded a young group of developmental biologists, funding that was renewed two times and lasted until 2010; he was the Director of the Nucleus during second and third periods (20032010). In 2010, he received a much more significant grant from the FONDAP program that funds Centers of Excellence. Dr. Allende, acting again as Director of the initiative, has led since 2010 the Center for Genome Regulation, that encompasses 15 scientists from three Chilean universities. Scientifically, Dr. Allende has worked mainly on the development and regeneration of the fish mechanosensory system, a model that is analogous to the inner ear of mammals which allows hearing and balance. As fish can regenerate these cells, it became

interesting to Dr. Allende to examine how they differentiate from progenitor cells during peripheral nervous system development and, later, to look at how they regenerate when lost to external damage. The bulk of his productivity since 2006 is in this area, although more recently, he has begun to examine the role of the immune system in the regenerative process. He has published over 60 papers in ISI ranked, peer reviewed journals. Dr. Allende has made important contributions to Chilean science outside of his scientific output. He has been a productive mentor, directing 59 theses (21 undergraduate, 14 Master’s and 24 PhD theses) and supervising 9 postdoctoral fellows. His students have gone on to excellent independent positions, both in Chile and abroad. He has organized numerous international training courses in developmental biology for Latin American students; at this moment, he is organizing a new course in Genome Editing Technologies for April 2016 which has already generated a high level of interest. Together with his lab, he has been involved in numerous activities aimed at promoting science to the public and to school teachers and children, including a recent workshop to implement a mobile lab in the area of developmental biology. At the University of Chile, he has been awarded for his undergraduate teaching in the molecular biology course. He has an important role in the University administration (he belongs the the Council for University Evaluation, that supervises all of the academic practices at the institution). He sits on the Board of the Fulbright Commission, that awards fellowships for PhDs in the United States. Finally, last year, he was elected to the Chilean Academy of Sciences, for his contributions to Chilean scientific development.

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

Abstract The Use of Zebrafish for Educational Purposes The zebrafish is a vertebrate organism well suited for demonstrative experiments that are simple and quick in the areas of genetics, developmental biology and environmental science. Like the fruit fly, mating a pair of animals yields hundreds of offspring and phenotypes can be easily seen with the aid of a simple dissecting scope. Embryos develop rapidly and they are transparent, allowing the observation within a few hours of all of the events that shape the organism starting from a fertilised egg. The larvae are excellent biosensors as developmental defects induced by environmental contaminants or toxic compounds can be directly observed. For these reasons, numerous initiatives around the world are using the zebrafish as a model for K-12 science teaching. Our academic laboratory has developed specific modules for the teaching of environmental toxicology to school children by

94

incubating embryos in larvae in environmental samples or using household toxicants such as cigarette smoke. We demonstrate the biological consequences of exposure to different concentrations of contaminants as a way to illustrate their potential hazards and to highlight the increased sensitivity of the early life stages of animal life to these agents. The experiments are simple, take a few days to carry out and are highly appreciated by students and teachers. In addition, concepts in development and genetics are introduced as the larvae used are transgenic and express fluorescent proteins in different tissues and cell types.
