The Scienteens Lab is offering continuing education for teachers and teachers-in-training via the “Institut de formation de l'Éducation nationale” (IFEN). Three upcoming courses are now open for registration.

"Parkinson's disease and the PD map"
Tuesday 9 May - From 15:30 to 19:00 at LCSB (Belval campus)
(registration open until April 9 – 10 places still available)

Learn about Parkinson's disease (PD), the second most common neurodegenerative disease worldwide, Parkinson research in Luxembourg (current approaches, latest findings) and the PD map.

Prof. Krüger will address these topics in his lecture and will also report on the nationwide Parkinson's Study (NCER-PD). After the presentation, the participants will have the opportunity to discuss and ask questions.

Dr. Gebel will present the PD map, an interactive map, accessible online, that represents the various cellular and molecular processes involved in the Parkinson’s disease. The participants will then learn to use the PD map independently.

"Puzzles and geometry"
Thursday 11 May - From 15:30 to 18:00 on campus Belval (Maison du Savoir)
(registration open until April 20 - 20 places still available)

Explore mathematics differently and discover configurations spaces in geometry.

How to measure the distance between different configurations of a Rubik’s cube? How to pave a specific shape with dominos? By using games and puzzles, the participants will see that behind combinatorial games lie beautiful mathematics.
The workshop is based on iPad activities from the interactive book Mathema.

"Mayonnaise, a culinary star on the test bench - a liquid or a solid?"
Friday 19 May - From 14:30 to 19:00 on Campus Limpertsberg
(registration open until April 19 – 16 places still available)

Learn more about the elastic and viscous properties of materials from our everyday life, discover various methods to determine the flow properties of substances and state of the art technology used for research in physics.

After a brief introduction on rheology, participants will do hands-on experiments in a lab. They will discuss the flow characteristics of mayonnaise, which they first produce themselves. Various high-tech methods, such as a rheometer, will be used to characterize the flow properties of the mayonnaises. The results will be mathematically evaluated, compared and discussed at the end of the workshop.
