Science on Stage Sweden
Science on Stage Sweden offers a platform for Swedish teachers who are willing to share their work on a European level and are keen to take part in a network of teachers from 25 European countries. International teachers are always welcome in Sweden to present their teaching projects in teacher trainings to Swedish teachers.
Science on Stage Sweden was established in 2005 and is organised within Vetenskapens Hus, a collaboration between The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and Stockholm University to promote STEM subjects by hands-on activities for students. The Swedish national steering committee (NSC) consists of both teachers from schools and scientists from Vetenskapens Hus.

Swedish teachers are asked to hand in their teaching ideas for the Science on Stage festival 2017. The deadline for applications is on 28th November 2016. Find full information via this link or get in direct contact.
On 11 October 2016 Science on Stage Sweden will offer a teacher training on 'Chromatography of Mixtures of Coloured Components at Secondary Schools' at Vetenskapens Hus, Stockholm. The workshop is based on a project of the Dutch teachers Andrea van Bruggen- van der Lugt and Wim Staal which was presented at the European Science on Stage festival 2015 in London. The content of the project is suitable for students age 13-19. For further information, please get in direct contact with the Swedish NSC.
On 28 October 2016 Science on Stage Sweden will offer a teacher training based on the brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' at Vetenskapens Hus, Stockholm (1pm to 6pm). For further information about the registration get in direct contact with the Swedish NSC.
On April 15th Daniel Bengtsson from Science on Stage Sweden held a lecture on 'How Deep Is Your Blue?' taken from the brochure 'iStage 2' in Stockholm at the fair of 'SETT - Scandinavian Educational Technology Transformation' - a special exhibition and conference focusing on innovative and modern learning in Scandinavia since 2012. This at a time when the access to Internet and technology is fundamentally changing the internal and external educational work within schools. The main devotion of SETT is to get the schools' professional employees to feel inspired, increase their curiosity and to get more knowledge regarding how the modern learning can be developed in schools toward higher achievement.
This at a time when the access to Internet and technology is fundamentally changing the internal and external educational work within schools. The participants of the lecture were told how to use smartphones in chemistry class and how to use the application to estimate the amount of copper in a watersolution.
