Track 7. Laboratories in STEM Education

This track aims to attract and discuss relevant contributions to the role of all types of laboratories in STEM Education. Potential contributions should place the laboratory, or any experimental-based activities, as the “scenario” where students acquire / improve experimental skills, effectively supported by evidence. In other words, any claim(s) should be ‘verifiable by an appeal to facts determined by experiment’.
