Swedish Centre for School Biology and Biotechnology

Our commission, given by the Ministry of Education and Uppsala University, is to support and inspire teachers in preschools, compulsory schools, upper secondary schools and in adult education by

  • supporting discussion and exchange of ideas between teachers
  • work for raised competence at all levels of biology teaching
  • giving advice for practical work in the laboratory
  • promoting development of outdoor education
  • supporting an integrating view of life science
  • giving information about current development within the biological field
  • supporting and promoting contacts between research, school and industry
  • stimulating discussions about sustainable development and ethical questions.

Beginning during 2003, we distribute a magazine, Bi-lagan, in Swedish. For rapid distribution of the magazine, we invite you to sign up for the electronic version on http://bioresurs.uu.se/publikationer/
