is about Equipping the Next Generation for Active Engagement in Science and to promote more Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). It focuses on secondary schools and teachers' professional development. Its aim is to engage educators and learners to participate actively in socio-scientific issues and innovate Science Education.
Traditionally students gain an image of science as a body of content, whereas RRI deals with uncertain areas of knowledge, where values and argument matter as much as facts. This shift is hugely challenging.
ENGAGE is part of the EU Science with and for society agenda. It focuses on a more inquiry-based methodology, which gives students opportunity for self-expression and responsibility for coming to informed decisions.
