Science on Stage Spain

Since the year 2000, Science on Stage Spain is organised in ‘Ciencia en Acción’. It is primarily intended to recognise the work of Spanish STEM teachers of all levels of education, professional social media and staff of the Museum of Science and scientific communication centers.

The main objective of Ciencia en Acción is to reward the drive, achievement and consistent work of thousands of teachers who are aware that future generations are in their hands. There are 15 different categories to present all projects received in each annual event. Besides the national festival, Science on Stage Spain organises training courses, awards prizes in “Cercle de Economia”, and organises lectures and round tables.

The Spanish Royal Society of Physics (RSEF),  the Institute of Mathematical Sciences (ICMAT), the Geological Society of Spain (SGE) and the National University of Distance Education (UNED) support ‘Ciencia en Acción’ in collaboration with the National Research Council (CSIC). The Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO) and the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT), assist in financing the “Ciencia en Acción” programme.

Spanish Science on Stage festival 2018

From 5-7 October 2018 the Spanish Science on Stage festival took place within the 19th edition of 'Ciencia an Acción' at the Cubic, Viladecans (Barcelona). 

'Ciencia en Acción' puts a special emphasis on recognizing, promoting and rewarding the labour of teachers of all educational levels in order to help all students to extend their scientist background and their valuation of the role of the science, in all its areas. The program had a total of 16 different categories. There were also three categories of the contest 'Adopta una Estrella'. The main objective of this competition was to wake up and to foment the interest of children and teenagers in the world of the Astronomy.

'Ciencia en Acción' was organised by: CSIC, Cellex Foundation, Lilly Foundation, ICMAT, RSEF, RSEQ, SEA, SEBBM, SGE and UNED

At the event, the Spanish delegation for the European Science on Stage festival 2019 in Cascais, Portugal was chosen. 

Furthermore, two workshops based on the teaching brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' were presented at the event.
