Science on Stage Europe The European platform for science teachers

About us

Science on Stage Europe provides an international platform for science teachers to exchange best practice teaching ideas. The ultimate goal is to improve science teaching by supporting educators in their professional development and growth. By spreading innovative STEM teaching concepts among Europe’s science teachers we enable more students to gain the affordable skills they need for a challenging future and encourage them to consider a career in science, ICT or engineering.

Since its launch in 2000, Science on Stage has reached about 100,000 teachers and teacher trainers in 32 countries (extrapolation by country representatives in 2011 and 2015). A network of National Steering Committees in these countries provides the interface to their national science teaching communities. Moreover non-European countries have the possibility to join the Science on Stage network as 'Associate Members', spreading best practice teaching ideas for STEM around the globe. 

Science on Stage Europe is the umbrella organisation that supports the 32 member countries with the realisation of their activities and helps with coordination of the Science on Stage festivals. The broadening of the network, the acquisition of new members and various administrative tasks are carried out by the Science on Stage Europe office in Berlin.

Since 2011, Science on Stage Europe e.V. is a registered non-profit association recognised by German law.
