Science on Stage festivals
Every two years, Science on Stage Europe organises Europes biggest educationals festival from and for STEM teachers. Each time hosted by a different European country, the festival brings together up to 400 STEM teachers from 30 countries to share and exchange their ideas and concepts for a successful science education from primary to secondary school.
"Every few steps was a new idea, or an approach to an old idea that I hadn't seen before. And the atmosphere was one of open cooperation, so that everyone was happy - keen, even! - to share their idea as far and wide as they could. That atmosphere is probably one of the greatest strengths of Science On Stage." Participant from UK
At the festivals every participating teacher presents his or her good-practice teaching examples to their international colleagues at stands, in workshops and in form of on-stage-presentations. These education-festivals can be seen as the peak of Science on Stage Europe’s work – they constitute a gateway for national follow-up activities of each individual Science on Stage country. Through the festivals, newly acquired concepts find their way to teacher seminars, brochures and teaching materials in every participating country.
All science teachers can take part
"Thank you for these fantastic a rewarding days! I learned a lot and was able to present my ideas and methods to perhaps a hundred persons." Participant from Sweden
Teachers are competitively selected to be part of their country’s delegation through rigorous application processes and national events in the 30 Science on Stage countries.
The next Science on Stage festival 2017 will take place from 29 June to 2 July at the Kölcsey Convention Centre in Debrecen, Hungary under the motto "Inventing the Future of Science Education". Furthermore the Science on Stage festival celebrates in 2017 its 10th jubilee!
