Science on Stage Europe 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 innovative teaching among Europe’s science teachers.

Since its launch in 2000, Science on Stage has reached more than 100,000 teachers and teacher trainers in 30+ European countries, and also Canada, Egypt and Israel.

The festival is in Cascais, Portugal. Estoril Congress Center will be the home of the festival.

Science on Stage festivals happen every two years, in a different country each time, so the next one will be in 2021.

Science on Stage is the largest European event from teachers for teachers gathering some of the most creative and innovative science teachers in Europe. Every 2 years, talented individuals have the opportunity to meet their colleagues in a unique rich environment. The event is completely supported by sponsorship. Do you want to see cutting edge trends in science education changing schools across Europe? Support us in this important mission. Please contact us at festival@sons2019.eu
