Teachers + Scientists

Science on Stage Germany initiated a project to build up long-lasting cooperation between STEM teachers and scientists. Natural scientists and local science teachers did research together on current scientific topics. The teachers transfered the knowledge into school lessons.

Through the collaboration, educators had the chance to gain insights in fields of study of universities and research institutes. They were able to transfer the newly acquired knowledge in class for their students and to develop teaching material. Scientists benefited from the exchange for their scientific communication.

For a start, there were four regional teachers and scientists collaborations in Germany from 2014 on. The aim was to internationalise the cooperative work in further countries in the future.

In 2017 Science on Stage Germany published a guideline about how collaborations between teachers and scientists can be established and maintained as well as teaching material based on the results from the regional cooperations. The project was conducted in cooperation with Stiftung Jugend forscht e. V.
