Description of the initiative
CREAT-IT project aims to take forward the agenda of practitioner led change at a European level by introducing creativity in science education. At the level of individual teachers this implies getting three things to happen:
• Individual teachers need to become aware of specific weaknesses in their own practice. In most cases, this not only involves building an awareness of what they do but the mindset underlying it.
• Individual teachers need to be motivated to make necessary improvements. In general this requires a deeper change in motivation that cannot be achieved through changing material incentives. Such changes come about when teachers have high expectations, a shared sense of purpose, and above all, a collective belief in their common ability to make a difference to the education of the children they serve.
• Individual teachers need to gain understanding of specific best practices. In general, this can only be achieved through training and demonstration of such practices in authentic settings.
CREAT-IT project aims to develop and support teacher skills in science education by integrating creative, cultural disciplines and social media tools in science courses, engaging students to participate in collaborative, project and case study based activities. The project is undergoing.
More Information
CREATIT project is still in progress. All results have not yet been developed. The website provides information how creative methods of scientific theater, opera and cafes scientific research can be used ( Results of activities based on creative methods will be published on:
This website contains links to other initiatives using creative activities to teach science (
Teachers’ Opinion
The use of the concept of theater or opera activities to promote science learning is a great idea. This is a good way to organize extra-curricular activities. Such projects are very engaging for students. They have fun and develop their creativity.
Students’ Opinion
It's very interesting idea. The school would be more interesting if we could do something like that at classes. Project website looks very good. It is a pity there are just not many materials.

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.
