Scientix connects STEM education to the real world
Over the past six years, the Scientix project has helped thousands of teachers of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects in schools across Europe to experiment in their classroom, adopt innovative teaching and learning methods, and inspire future generations.
These achievements were celebrated at the EMINENT conference in Barcelona between 19 – 20 November 2015. European stakeholders in STEM education met to discuss common challenges in the field and develop policies for the future.
EMINENT, Experts Meeting in Education Networking, is an annual event organised by European Schoolnet, a network of Ministries of Education across Europe. This year's event brought together 260 experts in education, representatives of national ministries and other stakeholders, including teachers, to discuss the importance of STEM in education and life in Europe.
Scientix supports the development and implementation of innovative teaching methods in STEM education by sharing best practices and knowledge. Systematically collecting information about 400 public funded projects in STEM education, they also have over 4,700 resources available for schools and researchers. Scientix organise regular online professional development opportunities including webinars, Moodle courses and other online training activities. As well as online opportunities, they offer face-to-face networking events, workshops and national conferences.
