Lithuania_Mobile Bioclass in Gabijos gymnasium


The “Mobile Bioclass” concept started its activities in Lithuania in 2011 and extended to Estonia in 2014. Up until now, this mobile laboratory has already visited over 200 schools in 130 cities of the Baltics. The objective is to promote biosciences amongst school children and inspire them to pursue a career in sciences. The students get to work with actual scientific instruments and conduct hands-on biotechnology experiments. The educational programme also includes lectures, discussions and training sessions designed to foster interest in sciences. This year, Mobile Bioclass visited two Lithuanian schools during Biotech Week. The project is conducted by company Thermo Fisher Scientific Baltics together with Vilnius University and Tartu University.
