CREAL organizes workshops for high school teachers on health and environment

CREAL, an ISGlobal allied center, gives a cycle of theoretical and practical workshops, in collaboration with the Catalan Foundation for Research and Innovation (FCRI) and sponsored by Amgen, for secondary school teachers. The workshop has a theoretical part of two hours of duration on air pollution and health implications and also a practical part of two hours too with a "Play and Decide", that could be a pilot game developed by CREAL that later can be developed by the teachers themselves in the classroom, or could be a game where participants take the role of a researcher, a politician or a citizen to decide about an environmental issue,  and a practical part for measuring particulate pollutants around the PRBB (beach, street with little traffic, busy roads, etc.).

Dr. David Rojas, Dr. Laia Font and Dr. Joan Forns participate in the training sessions, which take place on the facilities of CREAL.

The dates of the workshops are:

Workshop 1: Friday, October 30, 2015.

Workshop 2: Wednesday, January 13, 2016

Workshop 3: Friday, January 29, 2016.

Workshop 4: Friday, March 4, 2016.

Workshop 5: Friday, April 22, 2016.
