Science Hub Radboud University

The Science Education Hub aims to boost the curious and inquisitive nature of children and (potential) teachers. We work together with (primary) schools in the region, research at Radboud University and degree programmes in teaching.

About us

The Science Education Hub wants children to be able to think critically, keep asking questions and know how to look for answers through different types of enquiry. We have expertise in applying the didactics of inquiry-based learning in upper primary schools. Through projects and various other activities, we make connections between schools and our researchers, and we aim to transfer our expertise to (prospective) teachers and pupils in primary education in the Nijmegen region.
