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.

Science on Stage Albania on Tour

Science on Stage Albania was really busy in the last couple of weeks, spreading the word about Science on Stage and the European Code League throughout Albania. The target groups of their events were students as well as teachers.

In Tirana, the capital of Albania, they organised the event "Leaders of the future" for students who are interested in coding. They introduced the attendees to Science on Stage and encouraged them to participate in the Code League.

In addition, they invited the most innovative STEM teachers from all over Albania to a conference, where they presented them the many opportunities the network offers. Science on Stage Albania was able to gain new coordinators for its activities and together they plan to create coding clubs all across the country.

Take a workshop to your country: Lilu visits Italy

Heidrun Boll, ambassador and part of the BackStageTeam of Science on Stage Germany e.V., was invited to Bolzano in Italy, to conduct a teacher training on 15 and 16 April. Here, she demonstrated her project "Hebelwerkstatt", which was awarded at the International Science on Stage festival 2017 in Hungary in the category "Natural Sciences for Primary School". She also presented the published teaching material “Lilu’s House: Language Skills through Experiments”, on which she had worked as an author.

The training was organised by Monica Zanella of Science on Stage Italy. 20 primary school teachers from all over Italy took part. The participants were able to experience for themselves how stimulating action-oriented and research-oriented learning can be. They've learned how much language there is in natural sciences and which difficulties, for example, children with a migration background have to overcome in order to be able to follow a specialized class.

The feedback from the participating teachers was therefore very positive. One participant commented: "It was a great training, very close to everyday-lessons with an extremely motivated and competent lecturer!" They hope that in the future, more trainings of this kind could take place in Italy. 

You can order the brochure “Lilu’s House: Language Skills through Experiments" here for free or download it as a PDF file.
