Partners and Supporters

Future scientists, IT specialists, and engineers need appealing STEM classes. That is why Science on Stage supports teachers in their continuous professional development.

The lack of skilled workers has become a severe problem all across Europe. Teachers are the key to bridging the skills gap in young people and many more societal challenges of the future. With great hands-on ideas and concepts, they enthuse students for STEM careers and help them to develop essential skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration. 

Our non-profit association, established in 2011, reaches 100,000 STEM teachers in over 30 countries.

What to support at Science on Stage

In our network, the teachers set the agenda. They know about the challenges in everyday school life and define what is required when dealing with important issues such as inclusion, digital literacy, sustainability, or language promotion. Teachers in our network develop feasible solutions from teachers for teachers. We support their exchange of best-practice teaching ideas and help them to spread these to as many classrooms as possible. Our non-profit association established in 2011 Science on Stage reaches 100,000 STEM teachers in over 30 countries.

Support our work – an investment in STEM teachers is an investment in our students and future IT specialists, engineers, life science specialists.
