Science on Stage provides a European platform for science teachers to exchange teaching concepts and to share ideas. The ultimate goal is to improve science teaching by encouraging creativity in science teachers. Through this we will encourage more schoolchildren to consider a career in science or engineering by spreading good teaching concepts among Europe’s science teachers.
