Science on Stage Europe The European platform for science teachers

Partners & Supporters

To keep making STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) throughout Europe more exciting, we need strong partners, who understand that our future scientists and engineers need appealing STEM classes and teachers eager for continuous professional development.

The lack of skilled workers in science, ICT and engineering has become a severe problem all across Europe. Inspired, enthusiastic and creative science teachers are the key to this and many more societal challenges of the future. With great hands-on ideas and concepts they enthuse students for maths, physics, biology, chemistry or ICT classes and help them to develop an essential set of skills such as critical thinking, problem solving or collaboration.

What Science on Stage does

Science on Stage teachers give lessons with a lot of passion. Science on Stage Europe brings together these exceptional science teachers from all over Europe: they exchange best practice teaching ideas, find new innovative concepts and spread them among colleagues and networks in their home countries. Science on Stage’s goal is to strengthen the awareness and interest of young people in science, ICT and engineering by increasing the attractiveness of science lessons through the promotion of exciting ideas. Moreover Science on Stage supports committed STEM teachers in their professional development and growth by offering them an international profession face-to-face learning community and strengthens their motivation and self-esteem as educational experts.

Sustainability in over 30 countries

The initiative reaches 100,000 teachers and teacher trainers in 33 countries according to a survey answered by the country representatives. The festivals and follow-up activities have a sustainable impact, as evaluation studies show: 79% of participating teachers implement teaching ideas seen at the Science on Stage festivals. Another 69% state that the festivals increase their motivation and joy in teaching.
