The project involved developing and delivering teaching modules about current science. During the modules, the pupils developed exhibits on what they had learned. Each country selected its best exhibits and brought these to Kiel.
The conference began on the Friday morning with sessions in which the teachers and pupils discussed their experiences of the project. The teams spent the afternoon setting up their exhibits for the IRRESISTIBLE exhibition, which opened to the public that evening at the

All in all, a successful and entertaining IRRESISTIBLE conference!
