Scientix, the community for science education in Europe, promotes and supports European collaboration among STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) teachers, education researchers, policymakers and other STEM education professionals. Since 2010, Scientix has been helping European STEM educators inspire young people to take a keener interest in their science, technology, engineering and mathematics classes. Scientix is funded by the European Union’s Research and Innovation Directorate under the H2020 programme.
In its first stage, Scientix built an online portal to collect and present European STEM education projects which now contains more than 650 projects and 3050 resources. This was followed by the creation of a network of National Contact Points (NCPs) which support the development of innovative approaches in science education at a national level.
Community involvement is important within Scientix, and it aims to provide a common space for all actors in STEM education and create a connection between STEM educators, researchers and policymakers. In Scientix, the community of educators is currently represented by 377 teachers from 43 countries who have volunteered to act as Scientix Ambassadors. They actively support the dissemination of Scientix and contribute to the exchange of practices and knowledge among all STEM education stakeholders in Europe.
