Check out the STELLA final conference videos
The STELLA final conference took place in Nancy, France, on 18 November 2009 with more than 240 teachers participating. The conference presented interesting science education initiatives in France and other European countries, and wanted to stimulate discussion among the participants on how to make science education more attractive for young people.
The conference was broadcasted live on the Internet in English and French, and all the presentations were recorded. The presentations with simultaneous translation in English or French are available for download at http://www.stella-science.eu/workshops_conference.php
The conference participants consisted of science education teachers, educators, researchers and school heads, who took part in discussions and brainstorming on how to make science education more attractive.
Furthermore, the final outcomes of the STELLA project were presented, like the STELLA eBook "Science Education in European Schools - Selected Practices from the STELLA catalogue" including a number of science education projects and initiatives carried out in different European countries.
The STELLA project will finish in December, but the project website (www.stella-science.eu) will stay open for everyone to share science education initiatives and to participate in the forum.
STELLA (Science Teaching in a Lifelong Learning Approach) project was funded with support from the European Commission within the Lifelong Learning Programme. It aimed to improve science education in Europe by inspiring teachers’ and experts’ communication and exchange of ideas on teaching methods and best practices.
