How to calculate the perfect flight curve of a football? What type of grass is used at football grounds? Why do football players carry GPS sensors? Football is not only a sports game – it is science! With ‘iStage 3 – Football in Science Teaching‘ Science on Stage, the European network for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) teachers, released a new teaching brochure, proudly supported by SAP. The material is now also available as English version for free download.
The translation of the publication was of particular interest to Science on Stage: The aim of the non-profit association is to make good practice teaching ideas from teachers for teachers accessible to STEM educators from all across Europe.
The translation of the brochure was realised within the ‘European STEM League’, a new project of Science on Stage supported by SAP: The network initiates an international competition for STEM teachers all around Europe, inviting them to implement the teaching ideas of ‘iStage 3’ into their science classes in an exceptional way. The best 11 teams will be invited to present their results within the Europe Code Week 2017 at an international final event at the German Museum of Football in Dortmund. Teachers from Ireland are welcome to take part.
