Our CDs

CDs are produced in a teamwork between students of the club and teachers of WUN group. Students of the club are responsible for CD production, teachers of WUN group are responsible for content of the CDs. All our CDs are focused on a hands-on lab experiment containing protocols for teachers and students. Each experiment is surrounded by teaching materials and background information.
