Science on Stage Greece
Science on Stage Greece encourages Greek teachers to share best practices in science teaching and be inspired by the ideas and experiences of their European colleagues.
Every two years, Science on Stage Greece organises a national selection event in order to select the Greek delegation for the European Science on Stage festival. The main Greek event of the SonS programme is an exhibition and contest of laboratory constructions and educational material. The contest is open to teams of students and teachers from all Greek schools. During the two-day event, all selected projects are shown to students, teachers and the general public.
Science on Stage Greece organises conferences, workshops and teacher training sessions on various topics. The resulting teaching materials are freely available to all Greek teachers and to all Greek-speaking teachers.
Science on Stage Greece was founded in 2000 and is based in Athens.
From 11-12 November 2016, the main Greek event for 'Science on Stage – Europe 2017' was held in the premises of 'Laboratory Centre of Physical Sciences of Aigaleo', Athens (E.K.F.E. Aigaleo).
The national Science on Stage festival for the 'Science on Stage – Europe' programme was the '9th Hellenic Science on Stage Fair', which included an exhibition and contest of laboratory constructions and educational material on the theme of the programme: 'Inventing the future of Science Education'. The main purpose of the contest was the selection of the participants for the European Science on Stage festival 2017 in Debrecen, Hungary.
The contest was open for teams of students and teachers from all Greek schools. During the two-day event, all selected projects were shown to students, teachers and the general public.
The national Science on Stage festival for Greece was organised by the 'Laboratory Centre of Physical Sciences of Aigaleo' and the Greek NSC. It was announced to all Greek primary schools and high schools by a document of the 'Laboratory Centre of Physical Sciences of Aigaleo' and the Greek NSC, officially sent to schools by the Ministry of Education.
