Science on Stage festival 25-28 April 2013 in Słubice / Frankfurt (Oder)
European Science on Stage festival
Crossing borders in science teaching was taken literally by Science on Stage Europe: For the first time, the Science on Stage Festival in Słubice - Frankfurt (Oder) took place with bilateral cooperation from 25-28 April 2013.
The Polish organising committee of the Adam-Mickiewicz-University Poznań and Science on Stage Germany were collaborating in order to create a successful educationtional festival for 350 teachers from 24 European countries and Canada. Patrons of the festival were the Polish President, Bronisław Komorowski, and the German Federal President, Joachim Gauck.
The main focus of Science on Stage festivals is to offer science and mathematics teachers a platform from which they can exchange teaching projects and network together. The festivals give them the opportunity to present their best-practice ideas for science education and inspire colleagues through workshops, technical lectures and on-stage presentations. In this way, good-practice-examples will be spread all over Europe.
Follow-up activities are organised throughout Europe by the National Committees of Science on Stage in order to encourage and inspire teachers who have not been able to attend the festival itself.
Teachers from the following countries presented projects at the Science on Stage festival 2013:
- Czech Republic
- United Kingdom
