The Inspiring Science Conference 2016 will be held in Athens at the premises of Ellinogermnaiki Agogi between 22-24 April 2016. Educators, scientists, future teachers, policy makers, outreach organisations and interested stakeholders are cordially invited to participate in this 3-day event of reflection and celebration of inspiring science teaching.

The aim of the ISE Conference 2016 is to present and discuss results and best practices from ISE’s large scale implementations, as well as to provide an opportunity for researchers, teachers and policy makers to explore innovative approaches to science teaching, new technological applications in STEM, the role of Big Ideas in science teaching, and ultimately to offer a glimpse into the science classroom of the future.
