kidsINNscience in brief
Innovation in Science Education - Turning Kids on to Science develops adaptive strategies to facilitate innovation of curricula and teaching and learning of science and technology (S&T) in formal and informal settings.
The overall aim is to enhance the interest of young people in S&T and in science careers.
Diversity and inclusiveness, gender equity and activity based and learner centered approaches are explicitly taken into account throughout the whole project.
The aims were to
- facilitate educationalists at different positions in the educational system to operate more creatively within the system
- help generate changes toward more active learning systems in S&T education
- improve performance and interest in S&T among young people
But: innovations that work well in one context do not automatically work well in another, so the main research interest of the team of kidsINNscience was: how to transfer innovation in S&T education from one educational context to another, from one country to another?
