Translation service – Vote for your favourite resource!

Have you found an interesting learning resource in Scientix teaching materials that you consider useful and relevant for teachers to apply in the classroom? Vote for this resource, indicating your specific language(s). You will get a chance to have this resource translated into 37 languages!

The translation service is free of charge and available only through the Scientix website.

How can you vote for your favourite resource?

  1. Check the media campaigns that are organised by Scientix under http://www.scientix.eu/events/campaigns and the STEM strategy criteria that are targeted by the campaigns.
  2. During the campaign, choose via the resource repository (http://www.scientix.eu/resources) the Scientix resource that corresponds to the STEM strategy criteria targeted by the campaign and that is most relevant for you to be applied in the classroom or at the school level.
    You can filter resources directly using the descriptor “STEM strategy criteria” via the Advanced Search feature as shown in Figure 1 below.

Conditions for the selection of the resource to be translated

Following each media campaign, the resource for voted by most participants and which will be translated will be announced on Scientix social media.

Whether or not a resource is selected for translation depends on these criteria:

  • The resource will be selected following one of the media campaigns (http://www.scientix.eu/events/campaigns) that are organised by Scientix around STEM School Label key elements, as the resource considered by most participants to be the most relevant one (only teaching materials and not reports or courses).
  • The number of resources to be translated in each campaign will depend on the size (number of words) of the most voted-for resources, with at least one resource to be translated per campaign.
  • The license of the selected resource must allow modifications and derived works. More details can be found at http://creativecommons.org/licenses;
