Project ID: 518399
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY

Abstract

This is the final report of the POLLEN project. The major goal of POLLEN was to provide an empirical illustration of how science teaching can be reformed on a local level within schools whilst involving the whole community, in order to demonstrate the sustainability and efficiency of the Seed City approach to stakeholders and national education authorities, and to seek leverage effects.

After some brief introductory notes where the objectives of the project are presented, the report describes the importance of schools and teachers and their key role in introducing pupils to science and technology.

It goes on to present the major European cities that the project was implemented, as well as the main goals for each city. Concluding remarks regarding the evaluation of the project, as well as the dissemination of knowledge complete the report.
