Science in School: Issue 48 now available

4 November 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.

Highlights of this issue include: an article answering the question of whether plants suffer from jet lag; a look behind the scenes at one of Europe’s largest laboratories to explore the different roles that make life-changing research happen; and an overview of ESA’s space science challenges for the new school year in the News from EIROs section. 

Teaching activities include: a visually exciting experiment to work out the empirical formula of a chemical compound; an activity to test the effectiveness of different sunscreens; and a practical guide on how to connect your class with scientists across Europe.

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 versions translated into 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.
