Motivation for washing hands
"Hygiene" is very important, especially with regard to the corona virus SARS-CoV-2.
But how can you explain these important measures to your students and motivate them to wash their hands properly?
For this purpose we have put together some interesting experiments such as comparing the number of bacteria on cleaned and uncleaned hands or on banknotes and coins for you to discuss the topic of hygiene with the students and create further understanding.
You can find out everything about hygiene HERE!

LD DIDACTIC GmbH supports a centre for applied learning in Lebanon
LD DIDACTIC, together with the Aurelius Refugee Initiative e.V., donated training and teaching equipment worth about 15,000 euros to a CECS (Continuing Education and Community Service) training centre for applied learning in the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon.
The CECS centre offers various courses to children and young people in school age as well as for adults. The topics include applied sciences, project management, English, engineering courses and computer courses. Most course participants come from Syria.
The centre is operated by the Lebanese organisation MAPS ("Multi-Aid Programs"). The German aid organisation Orienthelfer e.V., a non-profit organisation, has entirely financed the centre. One of its goals is the humanitarian support of the victims of the Syrian conflict. A large part of the Syrians seeking protection in Lebanon live in the Bekaa Valley, near the Syrian border. In addition to the obvious essential humanitarian support, the demand for educational offers is enormous.
The equipment focuses at the request of the centre management on engineering education. The training and teaching systems have arrived at the Centre and are already being used within practical workshops. The goal is to be able to offer practical and future oriented training programs. Therefore the equipment is used to train and teach young people and adults in fundamentals of automotive technology, microcontroller programming and regenerative energies. Furthermore children can discover and learn about renewable energies and their advantages through active experimentation.
New catalogue: Automotive
The new Automotive catalogue is available now.
With LEYBOLD's solutions, your trainees and students can effectively learn the complex class subjects in the areas of motor vehicle technology and electrical engineering as well as renewable energy technology. Our didactic equipment and educational systems for technical vocational training ideally combine theory and practice and can be seamlessly integrated into the project work.

Worlddidac Award Sensor-CASSY 2 & CASSY Lab 2
Award for high degree of innovation and pedagogical value
The international jury of the global trade association for companies providing products for education and training, „Worlddidac", awarded the LEYBOLD interface for measurement data collection and evaluation CASSY Lab 2 with the coveted „Worlddidac Award." As part of the global trade fair for educational resources, „Worlddidac", which takes place between 24 and 26 October 2012 in Basel, both products will be presented to the international audience.
The Sensor-CASSY 2 is the interface for recording measurement data for all educational levels - from secondary school to university. Due to its flexible design it can be used as a desktop device and with demonstration frames as well. It is compatible with all CASSY sensor boxes and sensors and thus offers nearly unlimited opportunities for determining relevant parameters in experimental physics, chemistry and biology as well as in technical education. The intuitively operable software CASSY Lab 2 records and visualizes the measurement data and provides various analysis functions.
The key assessment criterion of the jury was the pedagogical value together with the product‘s high level of innovation. Aesthetics, environmental compatibility and user friendliness were also taken into account. Product evaluation was carried out in two phases: The jury of teachers, consisting of active teachers of different school types and representatives of different subject areas, performed the pre-evaluation. The second test and final evaluation was carried out by independent experts from different fields under the direction of Dr. Peter Gloor, professor at MIT in Boston.
„We are pleased that the unique combination of a high metrological standard and intuitive operation has convinced the jury", says Eric Blumenthal, Managing Director of LD DIDACTIC.
