Popularization of the experimental methods in social and natural science as topic of scientific and popularization projects during the established activities such as “The Researchers‘ Night”. The Researchers‘ Night is a EU-wide event bringing together the public at large and researchers once a year on the fourth Friday of September. It offers the opportunity to discover research facilities that are usually not open to the public (laboratories, research centers, museum collections), use the most recent technologies and instruments with the guidance of scientists, participate in experiments, competitions and quizzes, watch demonstrations and simulations, exchange ideas and party with the researchers. For one night, everyone can be a scientist. The researchers‘ night usually takes place in over 600 venues of 250 European cities in 33 countries.
Web based version of Forestry game was tested with students from Primary School and Gymnasium of Highly Intelligent Kids form Bratislava, Slovakia. The game was adopted for educational purposes. The aim of this experiment is to develop children’s ability to make decisions on natural resources, collectively and responsibly. During the event ‘Forestry Game’ was demonstrated with 3 groups of kids from various primary schools from Slovakia. “Sustainable users” of the forest were awarded with tree.
