Promoting Youth Scientific Career Awareness and it Attractiveness through Multi-stakeholder Co-operation

Deliverables

Creation of flyers

The Coordinator organizes the creation of flyers. Partners translate publicity and other project materials into the local language, the first of these being the flyer.

National websites

All those aspects of the website, which address the local communities of the stakeholders in each country involved in the project, are made available in all five European languages covered by the consortium (Finnish, English, Estonian, German, Greek).

Final descriptions of science-related careers qand collection of scientists' stories

This is a collection of descriptions of science-related careers and of scientists' stories.

Pre-service teacher education course

The results of the projects will be presented for students in teacher education.

Final report and recommendations

The consortium includes all research outcomes in synthesising a Final Report on Attractive Career-based Scenarios in Science Education.

1. Country Reports on interventions

This consists of a separate report from each one of the partner countries, compiling analysed and data and information gathered by each partner. The Country reports are planned to follow a common, detailed specifications, from which information provided can be compared and integrated.

Conceptual Framework

This constitutes a synthesis of the outcomes of the background literature meta-analysis, on the areas of interest, motivation, relevance and attitudes in science education, comparative and longitudinal research, addressing science teaching in secondary schools.

Report on practices and their implications

It provides a detailed account of the analysis of the evidence gathered through fieldwork in the partner countries (Deliverables 4.2˗4.6). Part of this document is intended to be a set of exemplary, In-depth Field Studies, illustrating the variety of approaches observed and the possibilities identified.

Presentation events at schools

Promotion of the school stakeholders’ involvement in the field work is intensively carried out in month 4 before the start of the research.

International final conference

The conference is an opportunity to consolidate the academic discussion on all concepts covered by the project. Most importantly, the final conference is an opportunity to explain the research findings to an audience consisting of selected researchers who can mobilize their organizations and professional networks to become familiar with and exploit the project results.
