Science on Stage is a European science festival that takes place every two years. Some 450 teachers from over 30 countries meet to exchange ideas on how to teach science and technology. Each participant has a stand to present a science activity. In addition to visiting the other stands, everyone can participate in workshops, seminars, lectures and science shows.

Primary and secondary school teachers have the opportunity to present their approach to introducing children to natural sciences and technology.

Are you a teacher who has developed a successful science activity in your classroom? Present it at this national festival. The 4 best projects will be invited to the next European Festival to be held in Turku, Finland in August 2024.

The programme of the Swiss Festival 2023 includes the presentation of the candidates' projects, exchanges with other participants and two workshops! Visitors can register until 10 November 2023 by email at .
