Science in School: Issue 47 now available

2 August 2019

The latest issue of the free magazine Science in School is now available online and in printed form. This European journal for science teachers offers up-to-date information on cutting-edge science, teaching materials and projects in science education, interviews with inspiring scientists and teachers and many other useful resources for science teachers. It aims to promote science teaching by encouraging communication between teachers, scientists and others involved in European science education.

Celebrating the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements, this issue includes an insight into the women scientists who contributed to the table of chemical elements, in addition to a retrospect on how the periodic table could have looked like. In the News from EIROs section, readers are invited to follow astronaut Luca Parmitano on his expedition to the ISS

Teaching activities include: experiments to understand some of the key principles of space science; a quiz about the properties of chemical elements; details on how to separate various pigments in leaves using chromatography; and instructions on how to perform some fun tricks with coins to explain physics.

Science in School is published by EIROforum, a collaboration between eight European intergovernmental scientific research organisations, of which ESO is a member. The journal addresses science teaching both across Europe and across disciplines, highlighting the best in teaching and cutting-edge research. Article submissions for future issues are welcomed, whether from researchers giving a deeper understanding of a specific scientific topic or from teachers or other science educators describing innovative activities to introduce modern science into the classroom. You can read the guidelines for submissions here.

Numerous articles, as well as their translated versions in many European languages, can be found online. If you would like to volunteer to translate Science in School articles into your own language for publication online, please see the guidelines on the Science in School website.
