the tw1st education project provides relevant output for both education and science: for education teacher workshops, digital learning environments, labs and cognitive tools are developed. In addition, measurements instruments are being created and professional experimental research is performed.

Virtual labs

the electricity lab

In the electricity lab students can experiment with electrical circuits. Here, students can learn about electrical current, power, power sources, electrical resistance, resistors, AC, and DC.

Transportation lab

In the transportation lab students can experiment with transport of electrical energy. The goal in this lab is to design an effective, safe, and efficient energy transportation network. Here, students can learn about the effect of, among other things, material on the durability, costs, and safety of energy transportation.

Cognitive tools


This tool is designed to optimize students' collaboration skills. Because this project focusses on online collaboration the tool is designed to optimize students' communicationskills. This tool uses peer-feedback and reflection principles: students provide each other with feedback on a set of predefined criteria after which they will reflect upon their results together and define what has to change to optimize their communication and thus their collaboration.
