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

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

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

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

Partners of Project Irresistible developed and implemented teaching modules on a cutting-edge science topic integrating Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). As a part of the modules, students were expected to develop an interactive exhibit to be presented to their peers, teachers, parents and public at their schools, universities or science centers. Through this process, students developed skills to better communicate the content and RRI by incorporating interactivity, while teachers developed skills to guide students during this process.
