Check out all the MARCH workshops

workshops general

In total, seven (7) local workshops (LWs) were carried out – one in each project country: Lithuania, Germany, Portugal, Serbia, Greece, UK and Bulgaria – to bring teachers, pupils and researchers together to focus on methodologies and educational content that could make science teaching exciting and attractive to young people (e.g. digital content, social aspects of science, researchers as role models, arts and science). The overarching theme of all workshops is: ‘Science and sustainable cities’.

Upon conclusion of each local workshop, three (3) international innovation swap workshops (ISWs) took place in Lithuania, Portugal and Bulgaria. In Lithuania, innovative practices tested in Lithuania and Germany were presented and discussed, in Portugal it was practices tested in Portugal and the UK, and lastly in Bulgaria, we focussed on practices tested in Bulgaria, Greece and Serbia.

These specific workshops involved all consortium partners, as well as key external stakeholders and experts. The workshops were recorded and are posted on our website, in order to reach and receive feedback from educators, students and policymakers throughout Europe.
