Science on Stage Europe The European platform for science teachers

European STEM League

Take now part in the European STEM League!

What must the ideal football turf be like? What influence do energy drinks have on the performance of the players? And can you calculate the chance of scoring during a penalty shoot-out? The teaching brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' contains a broad spectrum of interdisciplinary challenges for students of secondary school, encouraging them to discover the natural scientific phenomena behind the popular game.

Now Science on Stage invites STEM teachers from all across Europe to implement the teaching ideas of the brochure in their own classrooms, testing the various experiments with their students and sharing the results with teachers and schools from different countries. Taking part in the European STEM League is pretty easy:

  • Order the brochure for free via this link or download as PDF,
  • register for participation via the registration form below,
  • choose one of the teaching units and implement it with your students,
  • document the implementation (e.g. in a video (max. four minutes), a report, an online exhibition, a podcast/blog) in a creative way
    and fill in the documentation form in English language and 
  • hand in your application (documentation and form) by 31 May 2017 via E-Mail at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)


The teams with the most creative applications will present their projects within the Europe Code Week 2017 at an international final event. The event will take place on 22 October 2017 in the German Football Museum in Dortmund. The students of those teams get awarded with footballs and tricots! #iStage3 #EuropeanSTEMLeague
