CarboSchools links researchers from several leading carbon science laboratories in Europe with secondary schools. In these partnerships, young Europeans conduct experiments on the impact of greenhouse gases and learn about climate research and the reduction of emissions.
Nine research institutes in seven countries are exploring how they can best motivate and support such partnerships at the regional level across a wide variety of contexts, topics and age-groups. European co-operation makes it possible to compare results, learn from each other and develop replicable good practice. Pupils can gain European experience by getting involved in the Europe-wide SchoolCO2web project.
In order to assess the educational impact of the CarboSchools project, an in-depth evaluation of attitudes, beliefs and skills will be carried out.
