Science on Stage Europe The European platform for science teachers

Science on Stage festivals

Every two years, Science on Stage Europe organises Europes biggest educational festival from and for STEM teachers. Each time hosted by a different country, the event brings together up to 450 STEM teachers from all across Europe to share and exchange their ideas and concepts for a successful science education from primary to secondary school. 

The participants present their most innovative teaching ideas to their international colleagues at stands, in workshops and in on-stage-presentations. Following the principle 'from teachers for teachers' the festival supports the professional development of the educators. It is also a starting point for a wide range of national follow-up activities as the best teaching concepts find their way to teacher trainings and teaching materials after the event.

"Thank you for these fantastic a rewarding days! I learned a lot and was able to present my ideas and methods to perhaps a hundred persons." Participant from Sweden

Teachers are competitively selected through rigorous application processes and national events in over 30 Science on Stage countries.

The next European Science on Stage festival #SonS2019 takes place from 31 October to 3 November 2019 at the Estoril Congress Center in Cascais, Portugal.
