From 30/12/2008 to 29/12/2015

Scientix promotes and supports a Europe-wide collaboration among STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) teachers, education researchers, policymakers and other STEM education professionals.

In its first stage (SCIENTIX: 2009-2012) the project built an online portal to collect and present European STEM education projects and their results, and organised several teacher workshops. The goal of the second phase (SCIENTIX 2: 2013-2015) is to expand to the national level. Through the network of the National Contact Points (NCPs), Scientix aims to reach out to national teacher communities, and contribute to the development of national strategies for wider uptake of inquiry-based and other innovative approaches to science and maths education.
