image Competence in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) is increasingly seen as a fundamental policy objective, as it plays a key role in developing adequate Research and Development (R&D) capacity in Europe, and therefore in ensuring economic and productivity growth.

In this report, we assess and analyse the impact of the integration of data loggers and sensors in the science pilot classes on the motivation and interest of pupils and teachers to learn and teach sciences. We first describe the research objectives and methodology used and then present the overall results and highlight the main findings. We also formulate recommendations on science education and for future investigations on the topic.
