A new competition has been launched to inspire the most creative teaching minds to translate their passion for science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects into exciting classroom experiences.
The inGenious competition – co-ordinated in the UK by Futurelab at NFER – calls for all teachers in Europe to help their pupils better see the link between their passions, the set of skills which make them possible, and the education paths leading to those skills.
Teachers are invited to unleash their creativity to bring real-life STEM into learning in the next school year; through thought-provoking lessons and activities, industry visits, or establishing larger partnerships with local stakeholders such as SMEs, industry experts, authorities and associations. The aim is to help expose pupils to STEM workplace scenarios, break down common stereotypes, and create a pool of teaching resources focused on STEM careers to share with colleagues all over Europe.
The inGenious competition is open to all teachers at primary and secondary school level. Applications are open until 28 February 2014, and 30 finalists will be invited to attend the inGenious European Award Ceremony in Brussels later in the year.
