Description of the initiative
The main objectives of the EDUSCIENCE project are:
• increase interest in mathematics and natural sciences, information and technical and foreign languages by dramatically changing the existing formula of teaching,
• increase skills related to recognizing and defining research problems and the use of methods of research in mathematics and natural sciences thanks to the participation of students in real research process,
• develop skills in information and computer technology in the learning process through the use of e-learning methods and blended learning,
• increase interest in mathematics and natural sciences in girls by using gender-sensitive forms of promotion project of teaching and curriculum design.
The final product:
1) e-learning platform, on which are placed educational materials in the field of mathematics and natural sciences.
2) Methodical Guides and curricula.
3) User Guides.
4) Natural Sciences portal.
More Information
The platform of the project contains variety of didactic materials on the scientific issues. It is designed in a modern way and easy to navigate. The platform contains a variety of didactic materials, such as pictures, videos, animations. There are also proposals for experience that could be delivered in class, and work cards for students. It also includes information on the events and conferences related to science ( Teachers can find there materials for trips and proposals of trips to different sites, mainly research institutes and laboratories situated in different regions of Poland, such as Maritime University or Institute of Geophysics Polish Academy of Sciences ( The project has its Youtube channel with videos presenting scientific issues and coverage from the events organized by the involved institutions. The project portal has search engine which could be helpful for users. It is a valuable source of materials for scientific teachers.
Teachers’ Opinion
Eduscience gives teachers the ability to create interactive contents, e.g.: crosswords, combining puzzles and graphics. It is possible to take advantage of the curricula. For each of the developed curricula teaching materials located on the platform are assigned. It is also possible to add your own materials. On the platform one can also find four methodological guides adapted to the different stages of learning. Through the platform teachers can share with students the resources they developed. The project bring closer the world of science to the education.
Students’ Opinion
The portal and materials are very attractive and accessible. The design is very good. The menu is clear and the icons are nice feature. The interactive materials in the portal are well developed. Through fun you can learn how to create chemical molecule out of atoms. The blogs on astronomy or geology are very interesting. You can find many interesting things there.

I often use the EDUSCIENCE platform. It helps me to prepare for classes. This is an excellent base of articles, videos, and multimedia support for both science teachers and educators. I follow with children the blog of Hornsund Polish Polar Station in Spitsbergen. I'm also going engage students in conducting meteorological environmental monitoring. Reports of measurements and observations can be sent daily on the website. This creates a database with many schools in Poland, and the kids learn to be systematic and responsibe.

Często korzystam z platformy EDUSCIENCE. Pomaga mi w przygotowaniu do zajęć. To doskonała baza artykułów , filmów i pomocy multimedialnych zarówno dla nauczycieli przedmiotów przyrodniczych jak i wychowawców.

Chętnie obserwuje z dziećmi relacje z Polskiej Stacji Polarnej Hornsund na Spitsbergenie. Zamierzam też zaangażować swoich uczniów w prowadzenia meteorologicznego monitoringu przyrodniczego. Raporty z pomiarów i obserwacji można wysyłać codziennie na portal. Dzięki temu powstaje baza danych z wielu szkół w Polsce, a dzieciaki uczą się systematyczności i odpowiedzialności.


Dissemination Seminar in Florence

31 October 2015 The seminar has been held in ITIS “A. Meucci” one of the schools involved within Goerudio project activities. Its main aim was to promote the results of the project toward a broad sample of stakeholders even overcrossing the number of people directly involved in the production of project outcomes. This purpose has been totally achieved especially thanks to the participation of students and teachers coming from different schools or from other classes instead of those ones directly involved within the project activities.
