The Conference will provide the ideal opportunity for presentation of work and in the widest range of perspectives related to Science Education. The Hands-on Science Network is open to all views and approaches on Science Education. However, we advocate an active learning of Sciences through an enlarged use of hands-on experiments in the classroom. The aim of the Conference is to promote friendly and broad exchange of experiences on good practices, syllabus and policy matters, social factors and the learning of science, and other issues related to Science Education and its development.
Proposals are invited for oral or poster presentations, workshops and group discussions, hands-on experiments demonstration sessions, Science Fair booths and exhibitions or science shows/performances.
The HSCI’2017 Conference will cover the largest variety of topics relevant to Science Education and all fields of Science and Technology: Physics, Chemistry, Geography, Biology, Life Sciences, Geology, Zoology, Botanic, Ecology, Archaeology, Astrophysics, Mathematics, Robotics, Computer Science, Sociology, Psychology, Health Sciences, etc.
The Hands-on Science Network (www.hsci.info) is a non-profit international association legally registered in Portugal (NIPC 508050561) and with worldwide intervention.
The Hands-on Science Network, stands for promoting the development of science education and scientific literacy in our societies. HSCI embraces a wide membership of teachers and educators in all school levels from pre-school to adult education but also in informal contexts, managers and policy makers, academicians and researchers in virtually all fields of Science, from a large number of countries of the 5 continents. In an open-minded tolerant and friendly atmosphere we support each other’s and join our experiences and efforts towards a better improved and generalized Science Education. With an open and wide understanding of the importance of Science Education and of the ways to effectively implement it as a crucial factor to the sustainable development of our societies and of human kind, we encourage the use of innovative hands-on experimental approaches to science, technology and environment in-school teaching and learning. As well in raising the profile and attractiveness of Science in Education, we also aim to increase the desirability of a career in Science for all.
