The SAILS (Strategies for Assessing Inquiry Learning in Science) project is an international initiative aimed at developing new methods for assessing the skills of students engaged in inquiry based science activities. The project is has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Program for research technological development and demonstration. 

“We selected the Labdisc because we believe it brings added value to our inquiry-based learning sessions.”
Professor Retalis,Department of Digital Systems, University of Piraeus 

With the help of experienced science teachers Professor Retalis and his team have created several Labdisc scenarios, designed for junior high education. They introduce scientific theory, and practical application which is fully tested in the classroom.  The scientific measures are collected and analyzed and then published to the SAILS consortium in English and Greek for use in teacher training sessions by the other 12 partnering countries.
