FCV’s Eureka program receives international recognition
November 18, 2009
The successful science promotion program “Eureka” keeps adding awards to its trophies’ shelf. This time Eureka won the 2nd prize in the category “Medical Training” at the Seventh International Medical and Scientific Film Festival VIDEOMED CORDOBA 2009. The awarded piece was the interactive DVD “Virtual Laboratory of Genetic Engineering,” produced by Dr. Vivian Wilhelm, Fundación’s Senior Associate and Eureka’s Executive Director, Pablo Rosenblatt.
The aim of the festival is to encourage the use of different tools to reinforce the continuing medical education for secondary students so they can improve their understanding of the scientific and technological advances in this area.
The Eureka Program aims to reach a greater number of school teachers in Chile who could use this material in their science classes. For that purpose, free training workshops will be held in January, not only to deliver all the necessary multimedia material developed by the Eureka team, but also to train Teachers on how to best complement their teaching curriculum with this material.
