Science on Stage is a very important network that supports the collaboration of STEM teachers. Thanks to SonS, you can participate in the biggest teacher-to-teacher festival in Europe.
You meet outstanding teachers and this contributes greatly to your professional development. Besides that, SonS always supports you unconditionally. For a quality STEM education and a better world, Science on Stage can be our focus.
Your involvement with Science on Stage?
I participated in the Science on Stage Festival held in Debrecen, Hungary in 2017 with my "Scientific Research Club" project. Later, I was invited to the final with my students in the STEM league held at the German Football Museum.
Last year, I gave an Introduction to BBC micro: bit presentation as part of the SonS webinar series. My More Coding More Girls project was supported by Science on Stage and with this project I won the first prize in Diversity in STEM competition. I wish our cooperation to continue from now on.
