UK delegates from the last Science on Stage festival in 2015 will be attending teaching conferences and events across the UK across the next academic year, sharing their projects and those they saw at the festival with other teachers and technicians.
Upcoming confirmed events
- ASE Conference, Friday 6 January 2017 - delegates chosen to attend the 2017 festival will display their projects as part of the Schools' Exhibition. If you are an ASE member, you can find a write up about the 2016 schools' exhibition in this edition of Education in Science magazine.
- We will also be running a session on Saturday 7 January to introduce teachers to the iStage resources (see below). Search for 'Using smartphones and football to help students access STEM' when choosing sessions to attend via the ASE website.
If you are organising an event for teachers, why not invite a Science on Stage delegate to present at your event? Please contact us with any requests or questions.
Teachers who were delegates at the 2015 Science on Stage festival also have the opportunity to take part in teacher exchanges and joint projects with teachers from other countries. This provides the opportunity to develop Joint Projects to submit to Science on Stage, but also to share knowledge from across Europe with UK Schools and Colleges. Read about the 2016 workshop event between the UK and Italy or the Teacher Exchange between the UK and Netherlands to find out more.
There are a number of resources available through Science on Stage Europe covering activities in the broad areas of biology, chemistry, physics, maths and technology.
Developed by teachers for teachers, past UK delegates have often been involved in their development. They are available to download for FREE at the links below and can augment your current STEM classes in a fun and practical way.
- iStage 3 Football in Science Teaching - From the perfect curve of a ball’s trajectory to the ideal turf requirements and the influence of energy drinks on player's performance, iStage 3 contains a broad spectrum of interdisciplinary challenges for secondary school students.
- European STEM League - Have a go at the iStage 3 teaching ideas in your own classrooms, record the results and enter them into the European STEM League. Schools and colleges must register before 31 October 2016 to take part, but can then work on their entry until May 2017.
