Explanatory and experiment videos for primary school: Understanding our nature

Science on Stage Germany invites primary teachers from all over Europe to participate in a project on the development of explanatory and experiment videos. The topic of the videos is "Save our nature by understanding it!"

Whether for teaching at home or for differentiated instruction in the classroom, explanatory videos offer a helpful supplement for teachers, allowing them to show experiments and scientific phenomena.

Together with you, we want to develop new learning videos on environmental topics for primary school that encourage both inquiry-based learning and provide explanations for phenomena. Additional materials and instructions will accompany the videos.

For this project, 20 primary teachers will be selected to work in international teams for about 1,5 years. The project will be conducted in English.

The first meeting will take place from Friday evening, 14 April to Sunday, 16 April 2023 in Berlin. During this meeting you will receive training on how to create videos.

Training on how to make videos

At our first project meeting in April 2023, we will show you how to make your own videos for your school lessons. We will explain what to keep in mind when planning and filming and how you can edit your video with simple and free tools.

Aims of this project

  • Create explanatory and experiment videos by teachers for teachers about the topic “save our nature by understanding it”
  • Develop accompanying materials for primary school for differentiated teaching approaches
  • Promote communication skills, teamwork and creativity of the children

We want to further qualify primary school teachers and show them another approach to STEM subjects so that they can enthuse pupils for these subjects. We also want to provide primary school teachers with knowledge on how to incorporate digital elements into their lessons.

Who can participate?

This project is aimed at primary school teachers from all member countries of Science on Stage Europe.

You need no prior experience to participate.

Please note that the participation in two meetings (two days each) in spring 2023 and in spring 2024 is mandatory.

All travel and accommodation costs as well as food will be covered.
