About Science in School

Science in School aims to promote inspiring science teaching by encouraging communication between teachers, scientists, and everyone else involved in European science education.

The journal addresses science teaching both across Europe and across disciplines: highlighting the best in teaching and cutting-edge research. It covers not only biology, physics and chemistry, but also earth sciences, engineering and medicine, focusing on interdisciplinary work.

The contents include teaching materials; cutting-edge science; important science topics, projects in science education; interviews with inspiring scientists and teachers; reviews of books and other resources; and European events for teachers and schools, and many other useful resources for science teachers.

Science in School is published quarterly and is available free on this website; free print copies in English are distributed across Europe.

You don't have to register to read and download any of the articles on our website. If you do register (it's free), you can subscribe to the print version, receive an email alert, leave your comments on articles, and use our discussion forum. Online articles are published in many European languages (see the flags at the top of each page); the print version is in English.

Originally supported by European Commission under an FP6 grant, Science in School is now published and funded by EIROforum (a partnership between eight of Europe’s largest inter-governmental scientific research organisations). The journal is a non-profit activity and is based at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany.
