Language Skills through Experiments: Science on Stage presents new teaching material in Brussels

Why do I see my reflection upside-down in a spoon? Why does bread dough not rise without yeast? For children, everyday life is full of questions. Inspired by this, an international teacher team from seven countries developed specific ideas and practical advice on how to promote the basic scientific knowledge of primary school children while simultaneously training their skills in reading, writing and speaking. On 21 September Science on Stage presented the new teaching brochure 'Lilu's House: Language Skills through Experiments' at the Representation of the State of Hessen to the European Union in Brussels. The project was supported by the Joachim Herz Stiftung.

Greece: iStage 3 workshop in Athens

On 20 September 2016 a teacher training based on the teaching material 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' was held in Athens. Dionysis Konstantinou, who is one of the authors of the brochure, and Kostas Louvaris presented two teaching units: 'Don't Touch the Ground' and 'Stamping the Carbon Footprint'. In the course of this workshops the units were translated into Greek.

The participants were also informed about the European STEM League, the upcoming Greek Science on Stage festival and the relevant activities of the Greek branch of Science on Stage.

It was a succesfull meeting, especially considering the response of the Greek colleagues.
