image The STELLA project aims at contributing to the improvement of science teaching in European schools, with particular emphasis being placed on the stimulation of young people, especially female students, to undertake science studies and ultimately follow further careers within the science field.

This eBook provides a sample of selected practices, collected as part of the predefined scope of the European Lifelong Learning Programme Project “STELLA“ (Science Teaching in a Lifelong Learning Approach), in order to support educational authorities, school heads and science teachers in fostering and adopting innovative practices within the fi eld of science education at PrePrimary, Primary, Lower Secondary and Higher Secondary school levels. It illustrates selected practices identified from the STELLA Catalogue of Science Education Initiatives. The countries participating in the STELLA project, i.e. Bulgaria, France, Germany, Italy and Portugal, have each contributed a single chapter that describes in detail the selected practices chosen for inclusion by the respective country. Moreover, a particular eTwinning section is dedicated to selected practices from the eTwinning programme, included in the STELLA Catalogue. The main factors that foster innovation in science teaching at school are discussed and summarized in the “Conclusions” section of the STELLA eBook.
