    Primary Microscience Experiences.gif

    The Teaching and Learning Packages are made available to you by the Global Microscience Project, developed and promoted by UNESCO via its strong relationships with different non-governmental and intergovernmental organisations world-wide. These materials are accessible, free of charge both to teachers and students to use as basic practical science resources. They are easily adaptable to suit the needs of National Curricula in accordance with national education standards.

    Teaching and Learning Materials: Microscience Experiments, Organic Chemistry–Manual for Learners

    Teaching and Learning Materials: Microscience Experiments, Organic Chemistry–Manual for Teachers

    The project, in existence for several years, has gone from strength to strength, as new materials are added and awareness of the need for practical microscience experiences grows. Already more than 80 countries have benefited from introductory microchemistry workshops and training courses, all of which have had positive review by local experts and teachers alike. In some countries, UNESCO-Associated Centres have been established to further develop the microscience project.

    At the present time, English versions of the available microscience materials provide coverage of all educational levels: from primary to all of the secondary level (and university/tertiary level in some cases). These materials include chemistry, physics (microelectricity resources) and biology teaching. There are also many language versions available of specific microscience materials, indicating world community interest to develope the project further.

    We would like to extend thanks to all UNESCO National Commissions and the many donors and partners who have made it possible to provide free use of these materials via this website. We especially thank the RADMASTE Centre, University of the Witwatersrand (South Africa), International Union for Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), International Organisation for Chemical Sciences in Development (IOCD) and the International Foundation for Science Education (IFSE).
