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 health, focusing on interdisciplinary work.

The contents include teaching materials and projects in science education, up-to-date information on cutting-edge science, interviews with inspiring scientists and teachers, reviews of books and other resources, and many other useful resources for science teachers. Online articles are published in many European languages, but the print version is only in English.

Science in School is published quarterly and is available free on this website; free print copies in English are distributed across Europe. With very few exceptions, articles in Science in School are published under Creative Commons copyright licences that allow the text (not illustrations) to be re-used with varying limitations. Please see the details on the copyright page.

You don't have to register to read and download any of the articles on our website. However, registering on the website (free) will allow you to subscribe to the print version, receive email alerts, and leave comments on articles. 

Originally supported by the European Commission under an FP6 grant, Science in School is now published and funded by EIROforum, a collaboration between eight of Europe‚Äôs 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.
