Science Education Day "Engage. Enrich. Evolve."

Wir laden LehrerInnen, WissenschaftlerInnen, MitarbeiterInnen öffentlicher Institutionen und Forschungseinrichtungen und alle, die an Science Education und der Vermittlung von Forschung interessiert sind, herzlich ein.
Das IST Austria möchte eine Plattform zum Austausch über die Gestaltung von Aktivitäten für Kinder und Jugendliche und daraus resultierenden positiven Wechselwirkungen zwischen PädagogInnen, Kindern und WissenschaftlerInnen ins Leben rufen.
Die Teilnahme ist kostenlos.

Internationale Keynote Speaker sorgen für eine internationale Perspektive mit Best Practice Beispielen aus Israel und Luxemburg. Wegen des internationalen Fokus findet die Veranstaltung auf Englisch statt. Im Folgenden daher das Programm und die Veranstaltungseinladung auf Englisch:


Sharing the wonder and excitement of scientific discovery, the value and significance of the scientific method for modern society, and the importance and impact of scientific research for our standard of living, have become increasingly important missions for scientific institutions as they seek to reach out to schools and the general public. In addition to conducting science at a world-class level and training the next generation of scientists, IST Austria develops and organizes a portfolio of outreach activities. The Institute’s first Science-Education Day, titled “Enrich. Engage. Evolve.”, will provide a forum for international perspectives and exchange on a variety of topics in science education, with a focus on designing educational material and activities for children and teenagers and working effectively with teachers.
