Are you excited to hear all about our brand new competition?
This year, Next-Lab participates in the STEM Discovery Week 2018 with a very hands-on competition, meant to reward the best class implementation of the Go-Lab Inquiry Learning Spaces (ILSs)!
Here is what you need to know:
STEM Discovery Week 2018 is a joint international initiative that invites projects, organisations and schools across Europe and around the world, to celebrate careers and studies in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The tagline for this year’s campaign “say yes to STEM” describes the partners’ open-minded and dedicated support to STEM subjects at school, as well as wide-ranging collaboration among stakeholders in the area.
A class implementation is an activity with a minimum of 15 students, conducted under the guidance of their teacher and making use of the entire or parts on an ILS (new or adapted) for the entire duration or parts of their didactic hour.
So, if you are organising a class implementation between February-April 2018, then you are eligible to participate to the Next-Lab competition!
The first thing you need to do is to submit your class implementation activity to the STEM Discovery Week activities map. In the form, and when asked to, please indicate clearly that you are taking part to the Next-Lab competition. Once you carry out your implementation, we will get back to you via email with some additional questions regarding the content of your activity, the resources you have used, and the impact on your students.
In order to enter the contest, your activity will need to fulfil the following criteria:
- The submitted class implementation has to take place between March-April 2018
- Create a new ILS or adapt an existing one for your implementation
- A minimum of 15 students need to take part to the class implementation
The winner will be invited to attend the Next-Lab Autumn School that will take place in Estonia in September 2018. Flight, hotel and subsidies will be covered entirely by the project.
Looking forward to your submissions!
