The UK national steering group of Science on Stage, the Europe-wide festival for science teachers, is inviting teachers to apply to take part in the next Science on Stage event.
The UK national steering group of Science on Stage, the Europe-wide festival for science teachers, is inviting science teachers to apply to take part in the next Science on Stage event to be held from 2-6 April 2007 at Grenoble, France.
Organised by Eiroforum, the European Intergovernmental Research Organisations' Forum - a partnership of seven European science and technology research organisations, the Science on Stage programme brings together some 400 teachers from across 30 participating European countries. The aim is to share successful and innovative teaching methods and materials, and to discuss ideas about the teaching and learning of science. Through this approach the initiative aims to achieve its goal of promoting young people's interest in science and technology by increasing the attractiveness of science lessons.
Open to science teachers of all experiences, the festival's programme will feature presentations on innovative teaching activities, projects and resources, workshops and visits to the science research facilities based in Grenoble.
The committee wants to hear from teachers who are involved with an innovative way of developing students' interest in science, eg by using exciting experiments, demonstrations, multimedia, or unusual teaching methods. The committee will consider also teachers' proposals for a two-hour workshop or one-hour presentation. Teachers can get a flavour of the kind of activities required by visiting the programme's website.
The closing date for applications is 17 September 2006. Completed application forms should be returned to Alison Alexander, the national coordinator for Science on Stage.
