InChildHealth at ECSA 2024


Teresa Schäfer, Claudia Magdalena Fabian, Barbara Kieslinger and Elisabeth Unterfrauner from the ZSI team participated to the 5th European Citizen Science Association (ECSA) conference that was held in Vienna.

During their workshop “How to include schools in science health studies: practical experiences and lessons learned?” the main points of the discussion were:

  • STE(A)M education is becoming more significant for science education and educational policies throughout Europe
  • Although the STE(A)M education approach is successful in attracting interest of students, educators may encounter difficulties in engaging students
  • Intertwining STE(A)M education and citizen science activities will increase learning outcomes, the idea of cross-sectoral interdisciplinarity, and learning application of acquired knowledge to real-world problems.
