Short description:

This document aims to describe the development of the BLOOM School Box – a collection of five bioeconomy related teaching resources produced as part of WP4. The School Box,
developed by 20 pilot science teachers, serves as a pioneering collection of teaching resources for implementing bioeconomy in the classroom. Moreover, the BLOOM School Box acts as the
core of the BLOOM learning strategy, which offers interested teachers many professional development opportunities. Among these are the “Boosting Bioeconomy Knowledge in
Schools” massive open online course, which allows participants to gain insight into the topic of bioeconomy through the BLOOM School Box (and the associated “Teach bioeconomy!”
competition, where the best 15 learning scenarios will be added to the School Box), the BLOOM teacher trainings, which will further enhance the dissemination and uptake of bioeconomy learning resources among interested teachers and the BLOOM interdisciplinary school competition, which will encourage teachers everywhere to bring bioeconomy into their teaching.
