A real professor in the classroom

A school lesson by a professor, for instance about the history of Africa, the climate or research and healthcare. A hundred Leiden professors told primary school children about their work in the Meet the Professor project.

Children from 100 primary school classes were introduced to research and researchers thanks to a lesson by a professor in their own classroom. Exploratory learning was a central theme: in assignments beforehand the pupils had found out all about who would be coming to teach them. The lessons tied in with the Science & Technology theme and related to academia, research and Leiden University
