Description of the initiative
STENCIL includes 21 members from 9 European countries, providing joint expertise to contribute to the improvement of science teaching, by promoting innovative methodologies and creative solutions that make science studies more attractive for students.STENCIL will carry out a survey aimed at identifying innovative science teaching methodologies and good practices at national and European level, taking advantage of the positive results achieved by the former European projects.
More Information
The STENCIL project aims mainly at networking between teachers and initiatives focused on science education in Europe. It is build on two previous project which offer access to number of resources, for example selected good practices from schools in Europe: , multimedia tools that can be used in science education: STENCIL also provides guidelines for teaching and learning science in creative way: It provides also access to various science education initiatives all across Europe in different languages.
Teachers’ Opinion
What is probably the best in this initiative is the guidelines for teaching and learning science in an innovative way. The manual is interesting to read and to see practices and tools that can be used in the educational process in school in order to improve it. Another very good side of the project website is that it offers access to initiatives, which the user can browse by subject of interest( physics, chemistry, technology, mathematics, natural sciences, cross curricular approaches) A teacher can benefit a lot from this website.
Students’ Opinion
The website does not provide access to specific learning tools, but it provides access to many initiatives, which you can join. The good thing is that the initiatives are searchable by subject and by language and students can choose such initiatives that are in their mother tongues and are happening for real in their own country.

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.
