Creating the Difference

The "Kids' Knowledge Base": Connecting Junior Science to Society

De Moor presents an instrument that helps rouse the interest of young children in science and technology. The Kid’s Knowledge Base forms the basis for collaborative activities in a network of educational stakeholders, from primary schools to universities, utilising a combination of online and physical tools. Although the tools are important, de Moor concludes that it is essential in each context to find the right connections between content, tools, activities, and stakeholders.
