Description of the initiative
S-TEAM is a Seventh Framework Programme Science-in-Society project, funded by the EU, which aims to disseminate inquiry-based science teaching methods (IBST) to the widest possible range of teachers and teacher educators across Europe and associated countries.

The three main objectives of the S-TEAM Project are:
® To improve motivation, learning and pupil attitudes in European science education, resulting in
o increased scientific literacy and
o recruitment to science-based careers, by:
® Enabling large numbers of teachers to adopt inquiry-based and other proven methods for more effective science teaching by:
® Supporting teachers by providing training in, and access to, innovative methods and research-based knowledge.
More Information

Teachers’ Opinion
The resources which this initiative provides are not as many as in other initiatives. Also the possibilities of their use in the teaching and learning process in science education are not big, since they are not focused on specific topics or activities but rather on the general idea to support science teaching and learning in schools.
Students’ Opinion
This project does not present tools for learning. It is not easy to find resources on the website to address problems students have during the educational process of learning science.

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.
