Science on Stage at the Conference Elixir to Schools

About 200 teachers of physics and natural sciences from all over Czech Republic came together at the weekend conference 'Elixir to schools' in Hradec Králové. The teachers had the opportunity to see three physics lectures, to visit the Inspiration Forum and to participate in 40 workshops.

The workshop 'Fragments from Science on Stage' for around thirty teachers was prepared by Jitka Houfková from Science on Stage Czech Republic and Jitka Soukupová, participant to Science on Stage festivals in 2015 and 2017. At the workshop the teachers were introduced to Science on Stage and its activities and tried out some experiments of the former European Science on Stage festivals in London and Debrecen.

Some of the participants of the workshop are most likely to join the next Czech Science on Stage festival, which will take place on 13 October 2018 in Liberec. For further information follow this link.
