Science on Stage Austria

Science on Stage Austria’s aim is to encourage and motivate teachers to present their projects on a stage, get to know teachers from other parts of Austria and Europe and share their ideas for STEM teaching. What makes Science on Stage special compared to other initiatives in Austria is the international exchange and the large number of participating STEM teachers.

Every two years, Science on Stage Austria organises a national event to select the Austrian delegation for the upcoming European Science on Stage festival. Furthermore they organise teacher trainings and present Science on Stage at different activities. The initiative is part of the Science Center Network Austria.

Science on Stage is registered as non-profit-association in Austria.
