Welcome to the Science on Stage Festival 2019!

Every two years, Science on Stage Europe brings together science teachers from all over Europe to exchange best practice teaching ideas and concepts with passionate colleagues from more than 30 countries in the biggest science teaching European festival – Science on Stage Festival.

Science on Stage Europe believes that the best way to improve science teaching and to encourage more schoolchildren to consider a career in science or engineering is to motivate and inform their teachers. The non-profit organisation was founded in 2000 and reaches 100,000 teachers Europe-wide.

Science on Stage Festival

Each edition of Science on Stage Festival is held in a different country. Portugal and the municipality of Cascais have the pleasure to be the hosts of #SonS2019.

The Festival is the culmination of national events in the participating countries. Following the principle “from teachers for teachers” the festival is also a starting point for a wide range of national follow-up activities as the best teaching concepts find their way to teacher trainings and teaching materials after the event.

Science on Stage Portugal, NUCLIO and Science on Stage Europe are looking forward to seeing you at the next festival in Cascais!


To improve the quality of teaching by:

  • enabling science teachers to exchange teaching concepts and experience
  • inspiring and enthusing science teachers
  • informing teachers about wider scientific research

The ultimate goal of Science on Stage is to improve STEM teaching in order to 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.
