Science on Stage Denmark
Science on Stage Denmark is part of Astra, the national Centre for Learning in Science, Technology and Health in Denmark.
The contribution of Astra to society is to strengthen and develop science learning. The vision is that all children and young people achieve science skills that will enable them to express themselves as creative and critical citizens. As the national centre, Astra assumes responsibility for developing a cohesive science education across Denmark.
Through the development and dissemination of knowledge, collaboration, and coordination, it creates measurable value to all who teach science or otherwise share the vision of a new generation of young people with strong science skills in Denmark. Amongst others, Astra is engaged in the organisation of the Danish Science Week, the Big Bang Conference and Young Scientists.
Organiser of the Science on Stage festival 2011 in Ørestad, Copenhagen was the Danish Science Factory. The festival-film can be watched here:
