About Science in School

Science in School aims to support teachers in the delivery of their STEM curricula by connecting them to inspiring, cutting-edge science and technology, in order to foster positive attitudes towards the science that shapes our lives, and attract students to careers in these fields.

Published and funded by EIROforum, a collaboration between eight of Europe’s largest inter-governmental scientific research organizations, the journal is a non-profit project and is hosted by the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany.

Different covers of Science in School, the journal for European Teachers

The programme supports science teaching 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 classroom experiments and teaching materials, up-to-date information on cutting-edge science and real-world applications, projects in science education, and other useful resources for science teachers.

Online publication allows us to provide a range of teaching materials, for example, articles with printable worksheets attached, or content with supporting videos or hyperlinks to related resources.

The main language of publication is English, and we aim to provide translations when possible in other European languages.

With very few exceptions, articles in Science in School are published under Creative Commons copyright licences that allow the materials to be re-used with varying limitations. Please see the details on the copyright page.

We publish five issues per year: in February, April, June, September and November.

You don’t have to register to read and download any of the articles on our website, but we encourage you to sign-up for our newsletter to receive email alerts whenever a new issue is published.
