EURO4SCIENCE 2.0 – Spin Off of a Forensic Science Educational Strategy Promoting Scientific Literacy and European Students Citizenship

Description

Euro4Science 2.0 is a spinoff of a very successful partnership, previous Euro4Science Erasmus + Project. Euro4scince includes partners from Portugal, Poland, Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria and the UK

Euro4Science 2.0, includes the development of a Forensic Science Educational Toolbox which, despite exploring the same "case-file" forensic like approach as in euro4Science 1, now pretends to wide activities subject expanding the range of topics from STEMs. The philosophy of enquiry education and case files exploration complemented with lab and field activities is now comprehensive to incorporate important priorities of present day citizenship and challenges including health education, environmental sustainability and inclusive society and human rights.

In order to implement the innovative educational activities proposed and responding to a clear identified need, Euro4Science will promote the creation of a network of teachers properly trained in a hierarchical chain of workshops, from central "Train the trainers" hubs to local "hotspots" in order to reach a significant number of teachers and through them ultimately by secondary school students.

Hence the objectives of the project, include:

  • Tackling of early school leaving
  • motivation of disadvantage students
  • promote scientific and media literacy
  • address values and topics such as  freedom, tolerance , non-discrimination and respect for  human rights
  • address environmental sustainability and health by exploring transdisciplinary "Case Files"
  • develop activities related to everyday hot topics which are transmitted via media and internet, thus requiring proper literacy
