Omschrijving:

Lab on a chip is a frontier science area introduced in the highschool classroom. A lesson series and practical kit are developed for use at schools. 

A series of practicals were developed, to introduce the principles of microfluidics. For this, professional equipment is used, and a variety of fluidic chips. 

A series of simple techniques is developed, to stimulate learners to produce microfluidic devices themselves. This is done with scissor-cut or laser-cut hot lamination foil.
