Project to promote science education across Europe


The EUR 3.8 million project ESTABLISH (´European Science and Technology in Action Building Links with Industry, Schools and Home´) aims to create authentic learning environments for science students aged between 12 and 18.

The scientific community (academic and industry), policy-makers, parents groups, science education researchers and teachers have been brought together with the objective to drive change in the classroom. This will be done by developing and implementing innovative Inquiry-Based Science Education (IBSE) units and teacher education programmes, and adapting them for each country across Europe.

The project is led by Dublin City University in Ireland with coordination by Dr. Eilish McLoughlin with the long-term aim to generate greater interest in science subjects at school, improve the take-up of science at high school level, and also increase the number of skilled graduates for employment in science and technology.

The project hopes this will help to stimulate learning and promote intrinsic motivation in students, and identify career opportunities in science and technology.
