3. 7. RP EU - ESTABLISH - European Science and Technology in Action Building Links with Industry, Schools and Home Id: SIS-CT-2010-244749 2010 – 2013

Project funded by the European Commission's Framework 7 Programme for Science in Society.  The overall objective of this project is to facilitate and implement an inquiry-based approach to science education for second level students (age 12-18 years) on a widespread scale across Europe by bringing together, within a collaborative environment, the specific key stakeholders in science education.

4. 7. RP EU – SAILS – Strategies for Assessment of Inquiry Learning in Science, Id:  SIS.2011.2.2.1-1: 2012 – 2015

The aim of SAILS is to support teachers in adapting Inquiry Based Science Education (IBSE) at second level (students aged 12 to 18 years) across Europe. This will be achieved by utilising existing models and resources for both pre-service and in-service teacher education in IBSE.

SAILS aims to prepare science teachers, not only to be able to teach science through inquiry, but also to be confident and competent in the assessment of their students’ learning through inquiry.
