This website contains information from the German Stem Cell Network (GSCN). About the lesson series "Understanding Stem Cells - The Conference for the School": With this four-part lesson series, the German Stem Cell Network and the Ernst Schering Foundation provide teachers with fact-tested knowledge about stem cells. The freely usable material allows students from grade 10 onwards to actively immerse themselves in current research. The German Stem Cell Network secures the technical quality of the material with its scientific experts. The Ernst Schering Foundation uses its experience in science education to introduce young adults to current research topics with new methods and to encourage their interest in science. Our goal is to provide timely and accurate information. If we are notified of errors, we will try to correct them promptly.
