EU project: Making science real in schools

The British Science Association is taking part as a key partner in the MARCH (MAke science Real in sCHools) European Union Comenius funded project.

The project is bringing together institutions, NGOs and educational establishments in a co-operative learning environment so as to share innovative content and best practices in science education for secondary schools (ages 11-16) and to highlight and promote the important contribution of science to sustainable cities.

It consists of nine partners that come from seven European countries, including the UK, Greece, Germany, Serbia, Lithuania, Bulgaria and Portugal.

To gain a picture of science education in the participating countries, we are inviting teachers and students to submit their responses to the following surveys:

We would appreciate you taking the time to complete the questions and share your experiences.
