S-TEAM is a Seventh Framework Programme Science-in-Society project, funded by the EU, which aims to disseminate inquiry-based science teaching methods (IBST) to the widest possible range of teachers and teacher educators across Europe and associated countries.
The three main objectives of the S-TEAM Project are:
These objectives can be summarised as pupil engagement, teacher empowerment and teacher education. S-TEAM recognises that these objectives cannot be imposed on national systems, which in any case is not part of the EU role, but must be implemented through existing structures, agencies and actors. In order to achieve this, we are conducting national workshops to gather information about IBST implementation in the partner countries.
S-TEAM also has some numerical objectives.
