Brainfinity: SonS Serbia realised the largest STEAM competition in their region

Science on Stage Serbia, organised Brainfinity, a unique competition in which elementary school students in years 5 through 8 solve real-life problems in teams using all the benefits of information technology (computers, tablets, mobile phones, etc.). The fact that 333 teams across Serbia and the region applied for the competition confirms that Brainfinity generated much interest among children, parents and teachers.

Brainfinity has two rounds. The first round (the Brainfinity Challenge) took place online on March 14. With help from their mentors, the teams had two hours to solve three tasks. The best teams qualified for the finals that took place on June 6 in Belgrade at two locations, Savremena Gimnazija and ITHS, where they solved detective problems.

The teams scored points not just for their answers, but also for their visual identity (team name, logo and email, as well as the points got on social media) and the public presentation in the finals in front of the jury which this year comprised 12 experts from various fields.


The winners of Brainfinty got valuable prizes, medals, tablets, vouchers for a language school and escape room, sweets and books, while their teachers/mentors got free membership for the Institute for Contemporary Education and vouchers for IQ testing.

Brainfinity applies STEAM principles, which develop children’s skills regarding science, technology, the arts and mathematics, as well as other academic and life skills (media literacy, resourcefulness and a proactive approach) designed to help the students prepare for the labor market.

#SonS19 in Padua, Italy

Every beginning holds its own magic. For the first time, a Science on Stage festival took place in Italy! 

From 30 to 31 March, Science on Stage Italy organized a range of workshops for interested teachers on coding (Marco Nicolini), astronomy (Maria Rosa Ros from Spain), natural sciences (Monica Zanella) and mathematical machines (Pietro Cerreta). 

Additionally, the eleven Italian delegates for the European Science on Stage festival 2019 in Cascais, Portugal, presented their projects with great success.

The national Science on Stage Festival was part of the school's "Sperimentando" festival, during which students presented their STEM projects to other students and interested parties.

The delegates look forward to a reunion at the European Science on Stage festival from 31 October to 3 November in Cascais, Portugal!
