Apply by 31 May 2017: European STEM League
What must the ideal football turf be like? What influence do energy drinks have on the performance of the players? Can you calculate the chance of scoring in a penalty shoot-out? The brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' contains a broad spectrum of interdisciplinary challenges for students, encouraging them to discover the scientific phenomena behind the popular game.
In the European STEM League you implement the teaching ideas of the brochure in your classes. Compete with your creative results against international school teams for the title of European STEM Champion! Footballs and tricots will also be awarded to the students of the final teams!
The teams with the most creative applications will present their projects at an international final event which will take place from 20-21 October 2017 at the German Football Museum in Dortmund. #iStage3 #EuropeanSTEMLeague
