The goal of the project IRRESISTIBLE is to design activities that foster the involvement of students and the public in the process of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).
The project aims to raise awareness on RRI by increasing pupils' content knowledge about research. This will be achieved by combining formal (school) and informal (science center, museum or festival) educational approaches to introduce relevant topics and cutting edge research into the programme. By this methodology pupils will be familiarized with science, thus fostering a discussion on RRI issues.
Teaching modules on various RRI-topics. The modules include inquiry based elements for students and foster the aspects of responsible research and innovation (RRI) in different ways. Each module contains detailed descriptions on how to integrate the topic in both, formal and informal science learning settings, material for students and background material for teachers. The modules will be available in many languages and will be published on SCIENTIX as soon as they are available.
