Our Workshops

DNA Didactic also offers the possibility of taking part in workshops for teachers of Secondary Compulsory Education or Post Compulsory Education as well as for students aged 14 to 18. These workshops are aimed at schools, institutions, museums and foundations whose aim is to encourage and develop scientific knowledge in society.

Our workshops combine theory and practice. The participants will carry out different practical activities designed by us about the specific contents of each workshop.

All those people interested can take part in one or several of our workshops but workshop nº 1 must be included in any case.

The workshops will be developed in the estimated time and if a workshop takes longer than one hour there will be a break.
