In 2018, Science View was awarded the EPI2 2018 Award in the category “Awareness Actions & Campaigns” for the action “Learning Science Through Theater“. The EPI2 Awards are organized in the framework of the Athens Science Festival to reward a wide range of communication activities aimed both at the audience interested in the subject and the wider community.
In the context of the activity, students will implement a theatrical performance related to scientific concepts and will learn science in a creative way.
The specific objectives of the activity, which have as a central axis the interdisciplinary interconnection of science with aspects of art, aiming at the enhancement of students’ interest in science, involve both students and teachers.
More specifically, through this activity, students:
comprehend scientific concepts and phenomena
develop a spirit of cooperation and teamwork
participate actively in the negotiation of scientific concepts
develop creative and critical thinking skills
participate in dissemination activities and entrepreneurial actions for the promotion and support of their theatrical performance and they will contribute in further bridging school with society
develop their social and entrepreneurial skills
create an educational community that will cooperate, exchange opinions, material
Teachers on the other hand:
are engaged in professional development procedures through their cooperation and the exchange of opinions, ideas and teaching material (either in person or through online learning communities)
are trained in new methodologies for the teaching of science through training workshops and summer schools
create an educational community that will cooperate, exchange opinions, material and best practices for science teaching and learning, that will continue after the implementation of the action
become co-creators of educational material.
