Science on Stage 2005

Science on Stage 1 was held at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland, 21 -25 November 2005. Science on Stage 1 involved national activities in 29 participating countries and brought together around 500 science educators, in order to identify the most exceptional teaching projects and most motivating individuals in European science education. The festival was the final event of a two-year-long programme of events that took place in virtually every European country and from which delegates had been selected for their outstanding projects promoting science.
