Latvian teacher workshop about “Lilu’s House”

On 23 October, the Zemgale Region Human Resource and Competences Development centre (Latvia) organized a workshop for primary science teachers. They were introduced to the teaching material “Lilu's House: Language Skills through Experiments”.

11 teachers from Jelgava schools participated in the workshop and learned how to promote the basic scientific knowledge of primary school children while simultaneously training their skills in reading, writing and speaking.

The teachers practically performed several experiments from the brochure and discover how to integrate the material into their curriculum. 

The teachers acknowledge that the experiments were a good example how to implement a cross-curricular approach.

The material has been translated into Latvian by Skaidrite Bukbarde and the preschools and primary schools in Jelgava received the published version of the book.

The material is also available online:

Science on Stage Serbia organized their workshop

On Friday, January 17, ICE’s Center for Professional Development and Science on Stage Serbia organized the first in a series of STEM workshops about the important topic "waste". The speaker was Ivan Anić, professor at the Information Technology School and an ICE member and associate. 

The tasks presented at the workshop showed the numerous teachers in attendance how to connect STEM subjects in an interesting fashion and implement problem-solving teaching. The teachers  took the roles of students and tried to use STEM to solve waste-related problems.The research tasks required the teachers to actively use digital tools and apps, critically assess their resources, and apply skills from all STEM areas. After the workshop, the speaker performed an evaluation with his colleagues and showed them how they can do this using the Mentimeter IT tool. 

After the first workshop, ICE will organize STEM workshops each month with interesting topics and problem-solving tasks. The colleagues who display the highest level of enthusiasm will have the opportunity to become official Science on Stage ambassadors, and participate in Brainfinity – Collaborative Problem Solving Challenge, an ICE-organized competition for all primary school students in Serbia attending years 5 through 8, who wish to test their creative problem-solving skills and win valuable prizes. The teachers who reach the finals with their team will also win a prize – a free one-year membership at the Institute for Contemporary Education.

Premier colloque universitaire sur l’enseignement des sciences et du génie

On 25 May the Premier colloque universitaire sur l’enseignement des sciences et du génie - the first university colloquium on science and engineering education - took place in Montreal, Canada. 

The colloquium was organised by the Québec Association for the Teaching of Science and Technology. Together with a colleague, Johanne Patry, a member of the NSC of Science on Stage Canada, gave a practical workshop on digital tools for an online didactic approach, such as Moodle, an open-source learning platform.

At the end of this workshop, participants gained an operational knowledge of the online didactical approach which will enable them to be introduced to distance education design for their students.
