Science on Stage 2022 will take place on 24-27 March

On 17 January, the Czech capital revealed that it will host the 12th edition of the largest European education festival: Science on Stage. The 2022 event will take place on 24-27 March at the Clarion Congress Hotel Prague in Vysočany and will mark the first time that Science on Stage comes to Czechia. 

As a partner of the festival, the City of Prague has decided to allocate CZK 2 million (over EUR 81,900) for its organisation and operation. Noting that the Science on Stage 2022 fair carries tremendous importance, Councillor for education Vít Šimral shared:

“The festival, of which Prague is a proud partner, is a significant contribution to the inspiration and networking of teachers across Europe. This is an extraordinary opportunity for Prague and non-Prague teachers to gain stimuli and motivation in simple experiments and projects that will help them enrich and change their own teaching.”

Presenting innovative ideas

According to the Czech municipality, around 450 primary and secondary school teachers from over 30 countries will attend the 2022 fair. There, they will establish connections with research institutes, companies, and experts whilst showcasing their innovative ideas. 

More specifically, educators will present their experiments and projects at stands, which will be the main element of the festival. Those who have a stand at the event will be selected by the National Steering Committee. The projects that do not receive a stand in the fair can be showcased at 50-minute interactive workshops, 10-minute stage performances, demonstration classes and lectures. 

A jury will assess the quality of the projects and award the best ones with the European STEM Teacher Award. The best projects will be those that are sustainable, applicable in daily life and have the power to promote students’ interest in science, among others.
