- bring together science education practitioners to share different experiences and learn from each other by organising periodical study visits and workshops, in a peer to peer approach;
- disseminate materials and outcomes coming from previous EU funded projects, but also from isolated science education initiatives, through the STENCIL web portal and national communities, as well as through a wide range of dissemination actions, such as international conferences and national dissemination events
- provide educational authorities and policy makers with a set of Guidelines and a Manifesto for innovating science education in their countries, especially focused on the establishment of contacts between Research Institutes, Schools and Industries.
acrosslimits role: We have disseminated the project amongst Maltese schools, promoted the awards locally and organised a study visit for the whole network here in Malta.
