How do teachers benefit from Science on Stage? The education platform has a sustainable impact, as the evaluation study (2008-2012) carried out by Tanja Tajmel and Ingo Salzmann from the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin approves.
The results demonstrate that the exchange of teachers through the association’s activities has a positive effect on the motivation and joy in the profession. Indeed, participating STEM teachers find many inspiring ideas for their lessons and actually incorporate them practically in their own classrooms.
However, the teachers do not only appreciate the exchange of inspiring ideas, but also the possibility to gain and maintain contacts made on an international basis.
The improvement of science teaching and thus the promotion of schoolchildren to consider a career in science and engineering, can be a good way to counteract the skilled worker shortage in these areas.
