What must the ideal football turf be like? What influence do energy drinks have on the performance of the players? Can you calculate the chance of scoring in a penalty shoot-out? The brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' contains a broad spectrum of interdisciplinary challenges for students, encouraging them to discover the scientific phenomena behind the popular game.

In the European STEM League STEM teachers from all over Europe are called to implement the teaching ideas of the brochure in their classes. With creative results the participants are competing for the title of European STEM Champion! Footballs and tricots will also be awarded to the students of the final teams!

The teams with the most creative applications will present their projects at an international final event which will take place from 20-21 October 2017 at the German Football Museum in Dortmund. #iStage3 #EuropeanSTEMLeague

The deadline for application was 31 May 2017. 

The European STEM League is proudly supported by SAP and the SAP Stiftungsfonds.
