Science on Stage Italy
Science on Stage Italy offers Italian science teachers the chance to exchange with colleagues from Italy and Europe. The European dimension and a strong interdisciplinary approach makes Science on Stage unique compared to other Italian initiatives for teachers.
Every two years a national selection event is organised in Italy to select the Italian delegation for the next Science on Stage festival. Furthermore it gives Italian teachers the chance to exchange amongst each other and to get new teaching ideas.
After the festival, Science on Stage Italy supports the exchange between Italian participants and European colleagues. They regularly invite foreign teachers to present their innovative projects and experiments to spread the European ideas amongst further Italian teachers.
Italian teachers were asked to hand in their teaching ideas for the Science on Stage festival 2017 as written application. The application process is now closed. For further information visit Science on Stage Italy’s webpage or get in direct contact.
On 25 Feburary 2015 Marco Nicolini gave a teacher training based on the brochure 'iStage 2 - Smartphones in Science Teaching' in Bozen.
Another teacher training on the topic followed on 13 March 2015 in Udine. For more information, please use the direct contact.
Furthermore on 20 and 27 March 2015 Giovanni Pezzi, Lorenza Resta and Marco Nicolini gave a teacher training also based on the brochure 'iStage 2' in Bologna.
The workshop took place within the AIF Summer school in Faenza on 23 July 2014. These projects were presented:
- Matebilandia, Experiencing mathematical Modelling in an amusement Park
(Giovanni Pezzi, Italy)
- Be Amazed by Apps
(Alessio Bernardelli, UK)
Giovanni Pezzi won the first prize in the guiding theme ‘Learning landscapes’ at the Science on Stage festival 2013. For the presentation of the foreign project Science on Stage Italy invited Alessio Bernardelli from the UK.
