Science on Stage Hungary
Science on Stage Hungary offers Hungarian STEM teachers the possibility to exchange their experiences and teaching methods with colleagues from European countries. Via Science on Stage Hungary, teachers have the chance to build connections with each other and to enhance cooperation between teachers of different sciences.
Every two years Science on Stage Hungary organises a national event to select the Hungarian teachers who take part in the international Science on Stage festival. Hungary has been participating in all Science on Stage and Physics on Stage activities since the year 2000. Via follow up activities Science on Stage Hungary supports the exchange between Hungarian science teachers and colleagues from other countries after these events.
The Hungarian National Steering Committee was established by the Roland Eötvös Physical Society and was supported by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Later both the Association of Hungarian Biology Teachers and the Hungarian Chemical Society joined the National Steering Committee.
On 7-9 October 2016 the Hungarian Science on Stage festival took place at the AGORA Science Center in Debrecen. Teachers from different levels of the educational system came together to share best practice teaching ideas. At the event, the selection of the Hungarian delegation for the European Science on Stage festival 2017 in Debrecen was chosen.
In the course of the festival a teacher training based on the brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' was presented.

In 2017 the Science on Stage festival celebrates its 10th jubilee! The largest European educational fair from and for STEM teachers, will take place from 29 June – 2 July 2017 in the Kölcsey Convention Centre in Debrecen, Hungary. At the festival around 350 STEM teachers will come together to exchange innovative teaching concepts. They present their most innovative ideas from teachers for teachers in a fair, in workshops, seminars and performances. Here you will find the official festival website in time.

From 20-21 October 2015 a conference on the use of new digital media in public education was held in Budapest. Also Márta Gajdosné-Szabó from Science on Stage Hungary and four of her students took part and presented the workshop 'How deep is your blue' based on the brochure 'iStage 2 - Smartphones in Science Teaching'.

Supported with a travel scholarship by Science on Stage Kirsi Rehunen from the Päiväkoti Satulaiva Preschool Puuhiset in Finland visited Márta Gajdosné Szabó from the Kempelen Farkas Gimnázium Budapest in October 2015. After both of them met at the Science on Stage festival 2015 in London as national delegates for Science on Stage Finland and Science on Stage Hungary they now plan to design a Hungarian-Finnish joint project.

Márta Szabó works on a school project with her pupils for smartphones in science teaching.
She participates in the international project of Science on Stage Germany: iStage 2 – Smartphones in Science Teaching. Twenty teachers from 14 European countries work together to develop teaching materials for using apps in mathematics, physics, chemistry or biology classes.
A brochure with teaching materials for the use of apps in chemistry, physics, biology or mathematics classes will be published in 2014.
