How do teachers benefit from Science on Stage? The evaluation study (2008-2012) carried out by Tanja Tajmel and Ingo Salzmann from the Humboldt University Berlin has demonstrated that Science on Stage has a sustainable impact.
The results demonstrate that the exchange of teachers through the association’s activities has a positive effect on the motivation and joy in the profession. Indeed, participating teachers find many inspiring ideas for their STEM lessons and actually incorporate them practically in their own classrooms.
However, the teachers do not only appreciate the exchange of inspiring ideas, but also the possibility to gain and maintain contacts made on an international basis.
The improvement of science teaching and thus the promotion of schoolchildren to consider a career in science and engineering, can be a good way to counteract the skilled worker shortage in these areas.
