The Go-Lab contest is part of the initiatives of the Go-Lab project which aims to inspire teachers from European countries. The contest invites teachers to build lesson plans that follow the Inquiry Based Science Education (IBSE) approach and involve the use of online labs that target students between 10 and 18 years old.

The winning teachers will have the opportunity to travel to Crete and attend the five days Go-Lab summer school in July 2014 on advanced technologies in science education.  Traveling and accommodation costs will be paid from the organizers of all the winners of the contest.  The winners of the contest will be announced on May 31st, 2014.

The Go-Lab Project (Global Online Science Labs for Inquiry Learning at School) opens up remote science laboratories and their online models (online labs) for the large-scale use in education. Its technical framework – the Go-Lab Portal – offers students the opportunity to perform personalized scientific experiments with online labs, whereas teachers may enrich their classroom activities with demonstrations and disseminate best practices in a web-based pedagogic community. At the same time, owners of the labs may promote their scientific activities providing open interfacing solutions to easily plug-in their online labs and sharing them in the online labs federation.
