Science on Stage Europe The European platform for science teachers

Coding in STEM Education

 

Coding becomes more and more important in our society. To help increase the level of knowledge on a wide scale and to encourage the interest of young people in coding and IT Science on Stage focuses on the teachers. 

With its initiative 'Coding in STEM Education' Science on Stage offers a large variety of projects and activities, funding to support teachers in primary and secondary school to implement coding in their STEM classes and develops:
 
23 teachers from seven European countries develop concrete examples and practical advice not only about how to acquire coding skills using microcontroller such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi not only in computer science lessons but also in subjects  such as biology, chemistry, technology, mathematics and physics - even if you are no IT expert.
 
The results will be published in 2019 in English and German. 


 

 
      • Coding in STEM Education - The international teacher project European Code League 
        Following the publication 'Coding in STEM Education', student-teacher teams are invited to take part in a coding competition, where they develop creative projects inspired by the teaching materials. Ten teams will take part in a final event to present their results. 
         
      • Teacher trainings
        Science on Stage regularly organises STEM teacher trainings 'from teachers for teachers'. Based on the brochure 'Coding in STEM Education' the authors will hold teacher trainings in their countries, giving the their colleagues a profound introduction on how to implement coding in their STEM classes - all practice oriented and on a low-cost level. 
         
      • Funding for coding activites
        As part of the project 'Coding in STEM Education', all STEM teachers from Science on Stage member countries have the opportunity to apply for financial support for their coding activities during EU Code Week. Individual teachers can apply for support for their events such as workshops for students or for other teachers. Reports of their events and projects will published on the Science on Stage Europe blog as well as on social media.


      All projects and activities within 'Coding in STEM Education' as well as activity grants are supported by SAP SE.
