Raw Matters Ambassadors at Schools 3.0


The Raw MatTERS Ambassadors at Schools (RM@Schools), an active learning project, has achieved success and recognition by involving experts from EIT RawMaterials to engage students in experiments, and efforts to disseminate the results of those experiments.

RM@Schools is a KAVA project, lead by CNR, Italy, which sees 10-19-year-old students conduct experiments with Raw-Materials-related hands-on educational kits, produced by our consortium – and in communication activities. The project started in 2016 and runs in 2017 under the umbrella of Raw Material Academy.

Students are introduced to the Raw Materials topics by RM Ambassadors (experts from the Consortium), in classes held at schools, research centers or other appropriate venues.
