Nysgjerrigper goes international
In addition to national activities, Nysgjerrigper also participates in international conferences and gatherings. Within its field, Nysgjerrigper is significant, even in a European perspective. Here are some examples.
Researchers' Night 2007
To bring focus to the ongoing International Polar Year 2007-2008, the Nysgjerrigper Magazine no. 3-2007 featured a supplement on polar research. With support from the European Commission, the supplement and the magazine was translated into English and distributed to organisers of Researchers’ Night throughout Europe.
The magazine is also available as a pdf file. Click here to download the English version of the Nysgjerrigper Magazine no. 3-2007.
Science on Stage 2007
Science on Stage is a programme funded by the European Commission. It offers European teachers the chance to exchange successful and innovative teaching methods and materials. In 2007, Gro Wollebæk, one of the teachers in Nysgjerrigper’s network of Science Teachers was selected as one of five teachers to represent Norway on the international Science on Stage festival in Grenoble in April. She participated with the project "When you hit two eggs together, why does only one of them break?". The project features inquiry learning, employs a simplified version of the hypothetical-deductive method of research, called the Nysgjerrigper method. In the project, six hypothesis are tested.
An English version of the Nysgjerrigper method is available in print and as a pdf file. Click here to download the Nysgjerrigper Method!
Researchers' Night 2006
In 2006, the European initiative Researchers’ Night was held on Friday the 22nd September. Nysgjerrigper contributed to the event through our network of Science Teachers and fellow science communicators, and exhibitions of drawings from the "Draw a Scientist" competition will be held on several locations in Norway.
Researchers’ Night 2006
Researchers’ Night is held on Friday the 22nd September 2006, and as last year, the event coincide with the opening of the National Science Week in Norway. In 25 european countries, people can meet researchers in different arenas. Researchers’ Night is part of a European initiative to informe children and students about research and to inspire them to become scientists. The initiative is supported financially by the European Community and locally also by the Research Council of Norway.
Prize ceremony in Tromsø 6. Juni 2006
The prize ceremony of Nysgjerrigper's annual science contest 2006 will be held at the international conference Communicating Science and Technology (CST 060606).
The overall aim of the conference is to increase recruitment to science and technology at all levels in the European educational system by changing the attitude to science and technology in society in general and among young people in particular.
Communicating European Research in Belgium November 2005
The Nysgjerrigper project attended the conference Communicating European Research (CER) i Belgium on the 14th and 15th November 2005. To demonstrate how science can be made easily accessible, ten children from the Scandinavian School in Brussels made DNA molecules from jellymen and toothpicks.
ESOF Conference in Stockholm August 2004
In August 2004, Nysgjerrigper took part in the ESOF Conference in Stockholm. For more information, follow these links to our PowerPoint presentations.
