Science on Stage Europe is a network for science teachers focusing on the exchange of best practice teaching ideas. The ultimate goal is to improve STEM teaching by supporting educators in their professional development and growth. By spreading innovative STEM teaching concepts among Europe’s science teachers we enable more students to gain the affordable skills they need for a challenging future and encourage them to consider a career in science, ICT or engineering.
Since its launch in 2000, Science on Stage has reached about 100,000 teachers and teacher trainers in over 30 countries.
