Science on Stage Europe provides a European platform for STEM teachers of all school levels to exchange teaching concepts and to share ideas. Through various activities, Science on Stage has reached about 100.000 teachers and teacher trainers in over 25 European countries and Canada based on an extrapolation by the country representatives in 2015.
The impetus for all Science on Stage activities are the European science teacher festivals, called Science on Stage festivals. They are held every two years in a different European country, organised by the host member country.
These festivals have developed to be Europe's biggest science teaching event. It is not only the size, but also the tecnical quality, the international atmosphere and the enthusiastic spirit which make these events so unique.
Subsequent activities of the Science on Stage festivals focus on sharing, developing and sustaining the inspiration gained at the festival.
These follow-up activities include workshops, teacher-training courses, travel scholarships for teacher exchange programmes, publications of brochures and teaching materials and collaborative projects with industry.
