Science on Stage Europe The European platform for science teachers

Football in Science Teaching with the European STEM League

How to enthuse students for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths? Eleven school teams from Czech Republic, Germany, Georgia, Italy, Romania, Spain, Switzerland and Turkey showed how at the international European STEM League finals on 20-21 October 2017 at the German Football Museum in Dortmund.

Proudly supported by SAP and the SAP Charitable Fund, Science on Stage invited STEM teachers to implement experiments about 'Football in Science Teaching' with their classes and document the results in a creative way. At the final the best teams were now competing with their projects for the title European STEM Champion.

We heartily congratulate the teams 'Blocks' and 'GeOMagnus' from Romania (1. Place), 'MA12-Energy' from Germany (2. Place) and 'Liceo Ilaria Alpi' from Italy (3. Place) on their big success!

Project criteria

Venue of the final event: German Football Museum Dortmund


The world of experience that is the German Football Museum combines 1,600 exhibits and 25 hours of video footage with memories and goose bumps. The expectations of visitors are purposely transcended through the interaction of sound, light, exhibit objects and architecture – a one-two between experience and cognizance. You encounter yourself and your own biography. A grandfather explains the Miracle of Bern to his grandson, while his mother tells him about the infamous Wembley Goal – and the youngster tells the incredible story of Mesut Özil’s Facebook fans to them both.
