After three years, our EU-funded project involving nine (9) partners from seven (7) different countries has come to an end... However, you can still find us on our Facebook page and contact us through our website! What's more, our content and reports are widely available and can be downloaded for free, although we will not be updating the website any longer.
Let's look at what we've achieved together, in a somewhat chronological order:
- Three (3) International Educational Conferences in Greece, Germany and the UK
- 10 Workshops: seven (7) Local Workshops (LWs) in every partner country and three (3) International Swap Workshops (ISWs) in Lithuania, Portugal and Bulgaria.
- 11 webinars across various partner countries that involved a total of 269 educators and 181 secondary students, and a final report
- Best practices in schools piloted across all partner countries from February to October 2016, involving 9080 students and 1395 teachers in 143 schools across Europe! There's also a full report on what took place that you can download here (pdf).
- A Toolkit for Εducators was developed to help with the school pilots, spreading innovation and excellence in science teaching across Europe!
- This short video sums it up quite nicely, highlighting the key milestones from the MARCH project!
We've also managed to write a number of reports that can be used as resources for teachers, students or policymakers:
- "The State of the Art in Science Education: Results of MARCH Empirical Studies", 2015
- "Defining a good practice in STEM Education within the MARCH framework", 2016
- MARCH Recommendations for Educational Challenges (2017) available in all partner languages: Bulgarian, English, German, Greek, Lithuanian, Portuguese and Serbian
