(Three are needed for education: nature, practice, learning. ~ Aristotle 384-322 BC Ancient Greek Philosopher)
Education of individuals has been a large part of iGEM Thessaloniki’s activities throughout the year. In our attempt to make a difference and introduce people to the world of synthetic biology and iGEM, we adapted our educational material to our public’s age and educational background. The classification and grouping of several individuals based on these characteristics changed dramatically our approach; after all, in order for someone to be taught, the teacher has to learn how they should be taught. So, respecting our students' nature, we gave them educational activities to practice and eventually learn.
