SonS Serbia: A look back at the "Nauka na pozornici" project

The "Nauka na pozornici" project, (Science on Stage project), initiated a year ago and concluded at the end of July, has achieved significant success in enhancing STEM education in Serbia. Funded by the Serbian national agency Tempus, through the Erasmus+ program, this project enabled six teachers and members of the Science on Stage Serbia board to visit organizations in Finland, Portugal, Turkey, and with Croatian partners.

These activities were made possible primarily thanks to SonS Europe, which networked its members, the hospitality of the LUMA center in Finland, organizers of the next European SonS festival, Nuclio in Portugal, organizers of the European SonS festival in 2019, the Center of Excellence of Varaždin, Croatia, and Turkish colleague Selcuk Yusuf Arslan, a member of SonS Europe.

Throughout June and July, participants shared their experiences from Helsinki, Turku, Ankara, Lisbon, and Varaždin in seven live presentations, four webinars, and a podcast. With preparations starting in May, this mobility project contributed to the exchange of valuable methods and ideas in STEM pedagogy, strengthening international collaboration and innovation in the field of education.

Here is an overview of the webinars and workshops:
