iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching

Thursday, 2 June, 2016 to Friday, 3 June, 2016
Brussels, Belgium

On 2 June 2016 Science on Stage Germany will present the new teaching material 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' at the Representation of the State of Hessen to the European Union in Brussels.

The brochure was developed by 20 teachers from 15 European countries. In 12 teaching units the brochure shows how students can be fascinated for STEM with exciting topics and questions round about the popular sport 'football': from the game itself to the biological and health’ aspects of the players to the environmental issues when organising a big international sports event like the European Football Championship. 

Science on Stage is honoured by the commitment of Mr. Tibor Navracsics, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, to convey a personal greeting. 

 On 3 June two workshops based on the 'iStage 3' brochure will be offered between 9:30h and 11:30h:

  • Stamping on the Carbon Footprint: Interdisciplinary teaching united about the environmental and ecological impact of big international sports events (9:45h-10:30h)
  • Under Pressure: Investigating the physical characteristics of the football (10:45h-11:30h)


The working language is English.
