Science on Stage Finland

Science on Stage Finland fosters the European aspect of mathematics, science and technology education in Finland. It has played an active role since the beginning of the European initiative and has participated in almost every Science on Stage festival.

Science on Stage Finland spreads and promotes the best practice examples presented at the European festivals in Finland, through StarT programme. Every two years, Science on Stage Finland organizes, within the StarT programme, a national selection process for teachers to be chosen as Finnish participants for the European Science on Stage festival.

To coordinate the Finnish activities, educational experts set up the National Steering Committee.
