Science in the City: Building Participatory Urban Learning Community Hubs through Research and Activation

Project description

Strengthening science education through community partnerships

Europe faces a shortfall in people knowledgeable in science. The European Commission is seeking to expand opportunities for science learning in formal and informal settings. The EU-funded PULCHRA project will develop the concept of open schooling – where schools partner with local communities, local industries and professionals through City Challenges – pilot themes aiming to create know-how, build trust, facilitate skilled use of tools and support community building. For instance, City Challenges (technological) platform will bridge schools and other stakeholders, while students will serve as City Reporters to explore and disseminate City Challenges. Overall, the project will contribute to a more scientifically interested and literate society, and spur interest in scientific careers.
