With Europe's shortage of STEM skilled labour force, there is a real need for innovative approaches to demystify science, increase the motivation of the pupils towards STEM subjects and offer teacher training into new ways of introducing science in the classroom.

In this context, BRITEC aims towards: connecting schools with the world of research; introducing the Citizen Science (CS) approach in schools as a way of engaging pupils in research practice; creating a community of practice for teachers and researchers to exchange on how to bring research into the classroom; offering STEM teachers a way of participating in research activities; providing guidelines, resources, example of good practice and online training for STEM teachers in implementing CS at school.

The project is coordinated by the Institute of Geophysics (PAN), in collaboration with the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM), Open Technologies Alliance, Ibercivis, KU Leuven and European Schoolnet.
