S-TEAM has three functional objectives: ♦

  1. All science teacher educators in the participating institutions, and all science teacher education departments in participating countries, will be informed about S-TEAM (achieved by M18)♦
  2. All new science teachers graduating from participating institutions in the 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 academic years will have been told about S-TEAM and will be able to access information on IBST from either the project itself or the European Central Information Provider (ECIP) (achieved by M30)♦
  3. At least 50% of science teachers in the participating countries will have heard about S-TEAM and will be able to access relevant material (achieved by M30)

These objectives will be verified by surveys (as part of WP9)
