Science on Stage Europe The European platform for science teachers


Join the Spanish network: Introductory courses in Algeciras, Jerez de la Frontera and Malaga

From 7-9 October 2016 the Spanish Science on Stage festival will take place at Escuela Politécnica Superior de Algeciras, Cádiz as the 17th edition of 'Ciencia an Acción'. In order to involve new teachers in the program Science on Stage Spain organised several introductory courses in the Spanish region Andalucia. By this new participants and visitors shall be motivated to join the event.

The first presentations took place in Algeciras on 9 and 7 February 2016 as well as in Jerez de la Frontera on 18 February 2016. The next introductory course will take place in Malaga on 31 March 2016. The speakers of theses courses are teachers who participated in previous editions of 'Ciencia an Acción' and Science on Stage. 

For further information get in direct contact with the Spanish NSC.

Science on Stage UK at ASE Conference in Scotland

A Science on Stage strand running through the ASE Scotland Annual Conference at 5 March 2016 was organised by Stuart Farmer, member of the UK National sterring Committee. This began with David Featonby delivering his workshop 'What Happens Next?' to a packed room of delegates enthused by his ideas and demonstrations. Richard Spencer then followed on with his 'All Singing, All Dancing Biology' where he included his Mitosis Mamba he had everyone perform in the main hall at the Science on Stage Festival in Copenhagen in 2011.  The Science on Stage workshops concluded with a 'Best of Science on Stage' session where Catherine Dunn and Jo Matheson presented activities they had done as part of the UK delegation at the London festival in 2015 and David, Richard and Tim Browett shared ideas they had picked up in London and at previous festivals.  In addition Science on Stage had a stand, along with The Royal Society, in the conference exhibition area ensuring all delegates could find out about Science in Stage activities in the UK and beyond. The ASE Conference took place at the Robert Gordon’s College, Schoolhill, Aberdeen.

Languages, IT and Science: Canadian-French joint project on students cooperation via Skype

Anjuli Ahooja and Jean-Luc Richter, two physics teachers from Canada and France, met during the Science on Stage Europe festival 2015 in London and shortly after that agreed on a special joint project: With fifty four students from College J.J.Waltz, Alsace, France, and Appleby College, Oakville, Ontario, Canada, they initiated an international students collaboration project using OneNote Class Notebook, PowerPoint, and Skype. The aim of the project was to learn about various methods of production of electrical energy in Canada and France. Via class to class skype sessions in school the 'digital' exchange students communicated e.g. about their private consumption of power while cooking meals or playing computer games and after that analysed the results regarding also the costs and the ecological impact in each country. As a final task the students had to create a PowerPoint presentation including all the documents they had already produced: OneNote personal presentation, Excel files with appliance costs related to power, duration and energy cost, how energy was produced in both countries and a feedback on the project.

Greece-Romania: New joint project about experimental physics

From 2 to 6 February Laszlo Papp from the Scoala Gimnaziala in Romania visited Panagiotis Lazos at the 26th Senior High School of Athens-Marasleio in Greece. There he presented four experiments to about 25 students that also got involved in explaining the observed phenomena. Afterwards the students performed the experiments on their own, showing devices that they constructed for different activities. 

Laszlo Papp and Panagiotis Lazos now want to continue the eTwinning project that they initiated a few months ago and agreed to prepare a joint project about experimental physics and sciences for the next European Science on Stage festival 2017 in Hungary. The eTwinning platform will be a useful tool in synchronizing the activities between the two schools and to present new ideas and activities. In a next step, Panagiotis Lazos will visit Laszlo Papp in Romania for further collaboration.  

Both teachers have attended the Science on Stage festival 2015 in London.

The teacher exchange is a follow-up activity of the European Science on Stage festival.
