Frontiers for Young Minds published three articles dealing with each of the 3Rs, i.e. replacement, refinement and reduction on October 11, 2022. Earlier this year, the 3Rs were introduced to young minds from the International School of Lausanne in an event sponsored by the Swiss 3RCC. The lead authors of each article presented the 3Rs to the students, and the students then learned to act as peer reviewers. The articles aim to inform children and encourage critical thinking.
