At the Center for Science Education and Training (http://education.inflpr.ro/) we are training elementary and middle school science teachers. In order to provide a broader access to information and to deliver a richer content, we designed an e-learning platform. The platform includes: an archive of learning units (Physics, Chemistry, Life Science or Environmental Sciences), several fora for participating teachers, and a virtual library. The e-learning platform was developed in the frame of the project "Inquiry-based science education for elementary and middle school teachers- Discover!", financed by the European Social Fund and we use it to support teachers’ training also in the frame of the European Union funded “Fibonacci” project, our Center is coordinating in Romania.
