Take now part in the European STEM League!
What must the ideal football turf be like? What influence do energy drinks have on the performance of the players? And can you calculate the chance of scoring during a penalty shoot-out? The teaching brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' contains a broad spectrum of interdisciplinary challenges for students of secondary school, encouraging them to discover the natural scientific phenomena behind the popular game.
Now Science on Stage invites STEM teachers from all across Europe to implement the teaching ideas of the brochure in their own classrooms, testing the various experiments with their students and sharing the results with teachers and schools from different countries. Taking part in the European STEM League is pretty easy:
The teams with the most creative applications will present their projects within the Europe Code Week 2017 at an international final event. The event will take place on 22 October 2017 in the German Football Museum in Dortmund. The students of those teams get awarded with footballs and tricots! #iStage3 #EuropeanSTEMLeague
The European STEM League is proudly supported by SAP and the SAP Stiftungsfonds.
Who can take part?
All teachers as well as teachers-in-training of secondary school together with their students.Can I cooperate with other colleagues?
Yes. You can implement the teaching ideas of 'iStage 3' into your own classes or choose to cooperate with colleagues across classes. Furthermore you can choose to focus on only one STEM subject or go interdisciplinary.
Please note that, irrespective of the number of your team members, only 2 teachers and 4 students of each qualified project can be selected to take part in the Europe Code Week 2017 and the European Science on Stage festival 2019.What do I need to consider when handing in my project?
The most important thing is to enthuse students all around Europe for STEM by combining the lectures with one of their favourite sports - football!
We appreciate every project of yours.
