The best Swiss ideas for a better STEM education

From Prague to all of Europe! At the European Science on Stage festival in March 2022, 450 teachers will work together to shape science education of the future. The best teachers from Switzerland will take part.


Teachers matter! They are the ones who can enthuse students for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and thereby prepare them for the future! At the 12th European Science on Stage festival 2022, hosted by Science on Stage Czechia in cooperation with Science on Stage Europe, the participating teachers will be given the right tools to do so.

The three-day educational festival will take place from 24th-27th March in Prague. 450 teachers from over 30 countries will come together to present and exchange their innovative teaching concepts in a fair, in workshops and in short lectures. From a symphony of atoms to the production of foils from starch and the usage of microcontroller in physics lessons, there will once again be a variety of practical teaching ideas from teachers for teachers.

Particularly outstanding projects will receive the festival’s European STEM Teacher Award and will later be disseminated internationally as training courses or teaching materials. In this way, teachers reach thousands of students throughout Europe with their ideas encouraging them to consider a career in science, IT or engineering.

This year's festival is under the patronage of Mariya Gabriel, Member of the European Commission, and is endorsed by the Czech Ministry of Education.

Educational experts from Switzerland: six teachers from Switzerland obtain a ticket to Prague

Switzerland will take part at the Science on Stage festival 2022 with six teachers. The participants qualified for the national delegation by passing a preliminary selection process the Technorama in Winterthur last year: With exceptional ideas like experiments with fire or building a seismograph, the teachers convinced the jury of the Swiss Science on Stage festival. Now they head for the international Science on Stage festival to inspire and enthuse colleagues from across Europe with their teaching ideas.
