MARCH (Make Science Real in Schools) logo
Wednesday 01 January 2014 to Saturday 31 December 2016

MARCH (MAke science Real in sCHools) is a new network we have created with the aim of bringing together institutions, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and educational institutions in Greece and Europe.

The network is made up of nine partners from seven European countries: the UK, Greece, Germany, Serbia, Lithuania, Bulgaria and Portugal.

Our key objectives are to:

  • help young people contribute actively to the learning process
  • draw attention to the relevance of science to everyday life
  • promote science as a force that helps young people develop into active citizens
  • highlight the relationship between science skills and future employability.

The nine partners involved in the programme are keenly aware of the need to improve science education as a means of enhancing the employability of young people. In order to achieve our goals, we use new and innovative techniques that make the learning process more appealing and engaging. Our aim is to reach more than 10,000 schools across Europe and attract the interest of thousands of young students.

Programme recommendations and best practices in STEM education

The programme aims to address a number of educational challenges that are linked to students’ perception of science and existing pedagogical approaches to teaching science in schools.

Webinar: Best Practices for Creative STEM Classrooms

In collaboration with the eTwinning network's Creative Classroom project and Educational Radiotelevision, we are co-organising a one-hour webinar which will outline the goals of MARCH, along with the key findings of the scope-analysis conducted within the framework of the programme, and present examples of best practice for Creative STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Classrooms.

Workshop – Science education in secondary schools: How it can be improved

In collaboration with SciCo and Educational Radiotelevision, we're organising an Innovation Swap Workshop, which will take place at our Athens Science Festival.

The workshop is aimed at school teachers, policy makers and young researchers with an interest in science education and in the way science is being taught in schools. At the workshop we will present best practices in science education from other European countries and examine if and how they can be implemented in Greece.
