Science On Stage Europe 2022 Festival
What is Science on Stage?
Science on Stage provides a European platform for science and STEM teachers to exchange teaching concepts and to share ideas. The aim of the initiative is to advance science and STEM teaching by creating a platform for science teachers’ creativity.
Selected teachers and technicians from each country come together for an international festival every two years. In 2019, 33 countries were represented in Cascais, Portugal, with 235 European science teachers presenting 222 projects.
When is the next festival?
The next European Science on Stage festival (#SonS2022) will take place from 24th to 27th March 2022 in Prague, Czech Republic at the Clarion Congress Hotel.
How are UK projects and delegates selected?
The UK’s most creative and passionate STEM teachers are selected via application and reviewed by the Science on Stage UK panel. They form part of 450 educators who attend the event. Applications can be made by completing a questionnaire within SurveyMonkey which will be available shortly. The deadline for applications is 31st May 2021. The UK National Steering Committee (NSC) will shortlist applications in the summer of 2021 and successful delegates will be advised in September 2021.
The ideal Science on Stage project:
- promotes students interest in science,
- refers to everyday life,
- has a sustainable effect,
- is feasible in everyday school life and can be financed with reasonable expenses,
- promotes inquiry-based learning.
Subsequent activities of the Science on Stage festivals focus on sharing, developing and sustaining the inspiration gained at the festival. These follow-up activities include; providing professional development support to colleagues through local teacher meetings, courses, exchange programmes, publishing teaching materials and collaborative projects with industry.
Covid 19 Update
In times of school closures, teachers surely have developed innovative teaching ideas every day. Therefore, we have decided to give teachers more time to apply for the European Code League. The application deadline has been extended. The closing date for entries is now 31st May 2021.
