CEGICEP will develop high quality Open Digital Educational Resources for Science Learning for Professional Learning Communities (Teachers, Educators and Students) at Online Education Programs and Schooling from Middle, Upper and High Schools Curriculums (K-12). Resources will also serve Vocational Education and Training (VET) programs interested in Sustainable Development or Health Sciences Training.

The pledge of CEGICEP aims to broaden schoolers´ skills and interests in the areas of communication, collaboration, autonomous learning, self-confidence, digital proficiency and intellectual curiosity.
