Researchers and educators from within the BioSolar Cells consortium have developed a wide range of teaching materials for high school, BSc/MSc and postgraduate students. The learning materials cover science, technology, innovation and policy on sustainable energy supply. School and university students can put their newly acquired knowledge and skills to the test by solving problems in a real-world setting. They help students to develop their practical, mathematical, and analytical skills.
High school students
Most plants are exposed to plenty of sunlight, yet they only convert a small portion of this into carbohydrates (< 1%). So where does the excess energy go? What is a fuel cell, and what can you do with it? What needs to happen in our future for there to be a reliable supply of renewable energy? These and other questions are explored in the educational modules developed by BioSolar cells. These modules fit into the NLT, chemistry, physics and biology curricula of high schools.
Information about education modules for high school students is available in Dutch only. Click here to go to the Dutch webpage.
BSc and MSc education
Bachelors and Masters courses have been developed on subjects related to research within the BioSolar Cells consortium for use in both universities and universities of applied sciences. Furthermore, Honours classes are run regularly for excellent students.
High-level postgraduate courses are run regularly within the BioSolar Cells consortium on topics relevant to the research. These are open to both PhD students from within the consortium as well as postgraduate students from related research institutes. We offer both “one off” events as well as a course that is run regularly on an annual basis.
