Joint entry further to the following message:
Dear MSCA fellow / alumna / alumnus,
Today, we are reaching out to you with exciting new ways to communicate your research to pupils and teachers across Europe.
First, we are happy to announce that Science is Wonderful! is back and ready to connect your research to schools near and far. Science is Wonderful! bridges research with schools across the European Union. It celebrates the value and impact of EU-funded research by giving primary and secondary school students the chance to interact with leading researchers and innovators, learn more about their work in engaging formats and ask questions about scientific careers. Since its inception in 2015, Science is Wonderful! has organised an annual science fair that interactively showcases research projects and innovations through presentations, hands-on experiments, games and quizzes.
There are two ways to participate:
(a) You can register for our Science is Wonderful! online competition until 1 December:
This competition will give you a chance to get to find and know a primary or secondary school teacher eager to turn your research into an interactive learning resource for their pupils. Match with a teacher, develop a project proposal together, submit it and get famous! The best proposals will be professionally developed and promoted by the European Commission. Plus there are other small prizes in store, so make sure to register today but no later than 1 December.
(b) You can apply to showcase your research at the Science is Wonderful! fair in March 2023:
On 16-17 March 2023, the European Commission will invite MSCA researchers and alumni to come to Brussels once more and present their research through fun, interactive experiments, games or quizzes to pupils from Brussels and its surroundings. We are expecting up to 5 000 young curious mind, so do not miss out on this opportunity to meet the next generation and share your passion for with them. The European Commission will cover all travel and accommodation costs for you and a colleague. So make sure to submit your proposal no later than 1 December.
Additionally, we encourage you to get involved in the newly launched initiative Researchers at Schools. Linked to the European Researchers’ Night, these projects bring the wonders of science directly to schools – and pupils to the labs! This initiative will allow 2 400 primary and secondary schools and 225 000 pupils in several countries to discover researchers’ work through presentations, hands-on experiments, visits to labs, games, discussions and role-playing. Would you like to take part? Then check out the list of projects taking place all over Europe and get in touch with the organisers.
We hope that you will take part and strengthen the bonds between research and education.
Should you have any questions, please, do not hesitate to get in touch through
