Science in School: Issue 59 now available

5 September 2022

The latest issue of the free magazine Science in School is now available online. This European journal for science teachers offers up-to-date information on cutting-edge science, teaching materials, science education projects, interviews with inspiring scientists and teachers, reviews of books, and many other useful resources for science teachers. It aims to promote science teaching by encouraging communication between teachers, scientists and others involved in European science education.

The fourth issue of 2022 presents the following Highlights: Explore the science behind some of the Sustainable Development Goals and the key role science has to play in our efforts towards achieving them, and discover how to spark students’ natural curiosity while learning about curriculum-relevant topics with ESA’s teach with space program. Learn how to spot pseudoscientific fake news in the media, and what we’ve learned about the Higgs boson in the past ten years. 

Suggestions for classroom activities in the Teach articles include building instructions of a school seismometer, describe dramatic experiments with gases to illustrate stoichiometric reactions and combustion, show how to explore the nature of science by building LEGO mystery boxes and how to promote active learning by hands-on experiments with Daphnia as a model organism.

Science in School is published by EIROforum, a collaboration between eight European intergovernmental scientific research organisations, of which ESO is a member. The journal addresses science teaching both across Europe and across disciplines, highlighting the best in teaching and cutting-edge research. Article submissions for future issues are welcomed, whether from researchers giving a deeper understanding of a specific scientific topic or from teachers or other science educators describing innovative activities to introduce modern science into the classroom. You can read the guidelines for submissions here.

Numerous articles, as well as versions translated into many European languages, can be found online. If you would like to volunteer to translate Science in School articles into your own language for publication online, please see the guidelines on the Science in School website.
