Xplore Health: biomedical research within reach of young people

Xplore Health is a European educational programme promoted jointly by IrsiCaixa and the ”la Caixa” Foundation that offers interactive multimedia resources to bring biomedical research into the classroom.

The Xplore Health programme fosters science education based on research-based science education (RBSE) and at the same time interaction between students and different social stakeholders so that they can participate as responsible citizens in a knowledge-based society. It is implemented on the Internet and in schools, research centres and science museums.

Xplore Health is structured around themed modules: developing drugs, biotechnology, genomics, skin cancer, malaria, HIV/AIDS, mental health, obesity and others.
