Teachers can from 24 to 30 April 2017 join a number of competitions and events to celebrate opportunities that science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) have to offer!
This second edition of the STEM Discovery Week also joins hands with the United Nations Educational, Cultural and Scientific (UNESCO) organisation, to raise awareness about science and scientific literacy and to show how scientific literature can improve classroom discussions and activities.
In order to achieve this, Scientix has now published the names of eight recommended science books, based on suggestions from its community of teachers. On 23 April, known as the World Book Day, Scientix will open a discussion where teachers are invited to share ideas for classroom activities. Teachers can discuss one or more of those until 30 April, and the authors of the best two ideas will be awarded with an invitation to a Science Projects Workshop at the Future Classroom Lab in Brussels 23 to 25 June 2017.
What’s more, a number of teachers have shared their designs for posters featuring their favourite Scientix resources, using the hashtag #ScientixPoster on social media. Scientix will put those posters up for a public vote on its website starting 24 April, in which two teachers are also invited to the workshop in June.
Last but not least, Scientix invites teachers to share events they are organising for the STEM Discovery Week. All events happening this week are published on the competition’s web page and awards will be made for the best events .
