Outdoor Science Education for a Sustainable Future

Project description

Promoting science education amongst young people

Science and technology is all around us. Yet, getting young people interested in science is still a challenging task. The EU-funded OTTER project will address the waning interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) amongst young people. It will enhance understanding of ‘education outside the classroom’ (EOC) methods to spur interest in STEM subjects. Specifically, it will connect EOC experts from Ireland, Spain, Hungary and Finland, strengthening networks within Europe and building a foundation for the development of EOC pilot schemes within the four countries. The findings will be used to improve accreditation of EOC teaching methods in Europe, contributing to the selection of accreditation tools available for use beyond the project period.
