From 2013-01-01 to 2016-12-31 

This project aims to promote a widespread use of inquiry-based science teaching (IBST) in primary and secondary schools. The major innovation is to connect IBST in school with the world of work making science more meaningful for young European students and motivating their interest in careers in Science & Teaching. To this end, training courses are formulated, in which pre- and in-service teachers learn about IBST supported by teachers from vocational education, representatives from industry and informal learning.

They develop inquiry tasks in vocational contexts, leading to a large European task repository. Teachers experience IBST themselves and through iterative cycles of implementation followed by reflection integrate this into their practice. To ensure widespread participation, a pyramid model with a small number of teachers at the beginning is used. Each teacher then work with further teachers. Furthermore the program aims to develop an innovative interactive e-learning platform. To profit from the international perspective offered by the project teachers will be connected with existing European networks and our own thematic network on IBST through (virtual) meetings, a forum and the task repository.
