GSO4SCHOOL Summer Schools

Do you believe that Art is the missing component for STEM?

The GSO4SCHOOL project’s main aim is to propose an innovative method to motivate school students and teachers to participate in interdisciplinary science-and-arts initiatives and to develop and establish a network that will work together, exchange practices and maintain the Global Science Opera activities in the Future.

The GSO4School Summer Schools are offering teachers a unique training experience based on the “Global Science Opera” practices that were developed through both Lifelong Learning Programms (LLP) and Coordination and Support Action projects (CSA) that were funded by the European Commission.
GSO4SCHOOL Summer Schools aim to introduce innovative practices for teaching Sciences in the classroom by engaging students in collaborative activities involving the Arts. These practices are in line with the project’s main impact which is described as follows:

  • Improved long-term understanding of science learning, the roles of the learner, with better-informed citizens engaging with the grand challenges, while developing a collaboration culture among participants through the “universal language” that art provides.
  • Ensured scientific and interdisciplinary competencies as well as digital literacy for all, improved employability and informed citizenship.
  • Bridging gaps between science education and teacher education research, teacher preparation, teaching practices and learning.
  • Better understandings of the effects of collaboration between science education providers, local stakeholder and educational networks.
  • Development of a culture of responsibility, responsiveness, innovation and broad participation in all aspects of science, science and entrepreneurship education, and science communication.
