Networking events for Science Education projects
These networking events for science education projects bring together project coordinators, managers and other representatives, from European and national science education projects and organisations involved in STEM education. The aim of these events is at sharing and exchanging experiences from projects, present their work, and to facilitate the creation of new collaboration and partnerships. Each of those events is centred on a specific topic or challenge faced by those projects.
Online meeting room
Scientix aims to facilitate the work of the different public funded science education projects. In this context, Scientix offers projects the possibility to use the "Scientix online meeting room". Any project included in the Scientix project library can request to schedule an online meeting, webinar, online workshop, etc. for up to 200 participants.
Public profiles directory
Create your Scientix public profile and search for project partners or team up with like-minded colleagues in other European countries!
Scientix public profiles directory is a new networking and partner-search tool helping you identify potential EU project partners or STEM education professionals with similar background and interests. You can search for people by country, expertise, subjects or position, or by keywords.
To fully benefit from the service you have to register on the Scientix portal and complete your Profile page.

Scientix match-making tool
The Scientix match-making tool allows researchers and project managers to contact members of the Scientix community (teachers and other education professionals) and invite them to collaborate on their STEM education projects and initiatives.
The tool is primarily intended to facilitate contacts between science teachers and science education projects: you can search through the public profile directory by any relevant profession (e.g. secondary teachers, headmasters, etc.), country or expertise, and directly contact the selected members.
COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICE
The Scientix Communities of Practice (CoP) entail a moderated online forum, led by a designated expert, where STEM teachers will be able to discuss on science and technology subjects.
In this space you will find a basic presentation on the topic, paired with a series of useful resources as topic guidelines. Participants will find an array of open questions to inquire and discuss about.
The objective of the CoP is to let the participants engage and discuss with each other on those questions they are more interested in, to end up formulating a series of final ideas or conclusions. Join the Community of Practice!
Join discussions about the latest initiatives in science education! On the Scientix fora there are separate discussions for each project and each country. New discussion categories can be created upon request.
The fora are open to everyone; however, it is necessary to register on the Scientix portal in order to participate in the discussions. To send a new post, select a category of your choice and click the “Post new thread” button. You can write in any language.
The Scientix chat tool is your way to interact directly with other users. To start a chat, you need to be registered on the portal. After registration, the chat tool appears automatically in the bottom right corner of the page. Click the “Online friends” button to see which users are online. To open the “Chat” window and start the conversation, just click the name of the user. In the settings you can choose whether other users see you are online or not.
How to chat with another community member
The Scientix blog is designed as a space for people and projects involved in the Scientix network to publish personal stories on current science education topics in Europe. While representatives of European Schoolnet, Scientix Ambassador Reporters and Scientix Ambassador Volunteers are main contributors to the blog, all other members of the Scientix community (i.e. anybody involved in STEM education in the world) – who are eager to share their experience with Scientix - are encouraged to participate.
The Scientix blog features a range of different items, from coverage of Scientix events to opinions and commentaries on the state-of-the-play in STEM education research and practice, including news series or publication reviews.
The opinions of the articles published in the Scientix blog are the sole responsibility of the corresponding authors and they do not represent the opinion of the European Commission, European Schoolnet (EUN) or Scientix.
