The International Conference on “STEAM Approach in Science Education” is jointly organised by the NEXT STEP and GSO4SCHOOL projects. Join us for 3 days, from the 6th to the 8th of December. The Conference is going to be an on-line event.
The 2nd STEAM Approach in Science Education Conference will build on the results of the 2020 conference. Will be an international meeting point for educators, scientists, artists, researchers and policy-makers during which cutting-edge perspectives on creativity in school education will be presented and further developed. The conference will be an exciting and enjoyable occasion for educators to gain valuable experience with specific Professional Development approaches to science-and-art (STEAM) methodologies through hands-on experiences, lectures and intensive, interactive workshops.
