Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Dear Readers,

Science on Stage is looking back on an exciting year full of inspiring events and activities from and for STEM teachers from all over Europe. 

In 2016 our science teachers' network delivered national events in 16 countries, it has launched the new teaching brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' in six languages and it welcomed Georgia, Iceland, Latvia and Ukraine as well as Egypt and Israel to our community.

Today we would like to thank you all for your great commitment: Your work and enthusiasm is what makes our network so special and vivid! Together we are looking forward to an exciting year to come in 2017.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 

Your Science on Stage Team


Teaching Material of the Month: Light phenomena and electricity in primary school

Everyone who swings an electric torch in fast circles can oberserve this phenomenon: Even though the light of the lamp only comes from one point you can see a circular line of light. But how can that be? In this teaching unit the physicist and electrician Otto Lührs explains this phenomenon to primary school students by building a disc rotography with light-emitting diodes on a CD. The material is taken from the brochure 'Lantern Moon and Hot Ears' and can be downloaded here:

iStage 3: Now available in six languages

The brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' comprises twelve teaching units containing interesting experiments around football for biology, chemistry, computer sciences, maths and physics: From the measurement of the mass of the air inside the ball, to the influence of energy drinks on the performance of the players and on calculating the chance of scoring during a penalty shoot-out, there is something for everyone to try. The material is now available in English, French, German, Hungarian, Polish and Spanish. A Czech and Swedish version will follow in 2017. Find the material here:

Join in: European STEM League

Let football play a major role in your science teaching. 'iStage 3' will get you started. Science on Stage invites STEM teachers from all over Europe to take part in the 'European STEM League', to implement the teaching ideas of the brochure into their classes and share the results with colleagues and schools across borders. Show us how you and your students get creative and become STEM-Champions! Learn more at:

>> www.science-on-stage.eu/STEMleague

Teachers from these countries are already taking part: Czech Republic, Germany,  Greece, Hungary, Italy,  Portugal,  Romania, Serbia, Spain,  Turkey,  Ukraine and  United Kingdom.

The brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' is available in English, FrenchGerman, Hungarian, Polish and Spanish.

News from our blog: Greek Science on Stage festival and robotics workshop in Turkey

This month hear about the national Science on Stage festival in Greece, where about 150 enthralling STEM teaching projects were presented to over 1,000 visitors at a colourful fair. In Turkey, Nilgün Erentay, head of Science on Stage Turkey, organised a hands-on workshop about robotics. Find the full reports here:
