In September, ARTEMiS leader Violeta Ivanova traveled to Pakistan to teach a workshop on Visualization in Science Education. The Virtual University (VU) of Pakistan in Lahore hosted the four-day workshop, providing a computer lab and technical support. Educators from several Pakistani universities and professional staff from VU attended the workshop. EDC/USAID provided funding for curriculum and resource development and travel through a grant to MIT to develop an online teacher training program for Pakistan. You can learn more about the EDC-Pakistan: Teacher Training project on this website. To find out more about the workshop in Lahore, see article titled EDC/USAID Teacher Education Project and ARTEMiS: Visualization in Science Education in the October 2013 issue of VU’s newsletter.
We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry.- Maria Montessori
