Sustainability and environmental protection are important issues for students in Europe. How we deal with these problems will shape our future. Motivated and talented teachers are the key for students to cope with tomorrow’s challenges. This is especially true for STEM teachers. They convey important information to students not only to understand the problems, but also to think about possible solutions.
“Sustainable Development” has been a guiding theme at the Stage in Science for many years. Hundreds of teachers have presented innovative teaching projects where students can explore environmental and sustainability issues. All these projects represent research-based learning approaches. Our aim is to support teachers in Europe in their continuous professional development and to spread high quality teaching ideas with our teaching materials.
