Science Debating for Secondary School Students, Museum Challenges Leiden, is an initiative of Vreemdetaal.nl in collaboration with De Leidse Aanpak. The latter one consists of a network of about 50 partners. Partners vary from Higher education, local government, educators to companies in the city of Leiden. The mission is to discover and develop talents of 0-24 year olds.
Vreemdetaal.nl is an award winning open learning community. As a non profit our mission is to enable teachers to innovate their practice in a European community. Students and teachers from different countries in the world are sparring partners on curriculum development in language and literature.
Vreemdetaal.nl was awarded the Innovative Modern Foreign Language label by the European Commission and the Dutch, Turkish and Bulgarian Ministries of Education in 2008. Its approach is theme-based, project based collaboration in order to connect students and teachers.
