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. 

When is the next festival?

The next European Science on Stage festival (#SonS2024) will take place from 12th August to 15th August in Turku, Finland

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.

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.

Details of how to apply to represent the UK at the Festival will be available here when the application process opens in 2023.
