We are scientists and school professors, willing to use different travel opportunities (when we attend scientific conferences, when we go on holidays, etc.) to give free outreach-lectures in local schools and high-schools to complement education systems in developing countries.
The idea of non-profit “SciEd network” project is to enhance interconnections between scientists and educational system around the globe, from which both sides can benefit. According to UNESCO statistics 1.9 million more teachers are needed in classrooms by 2015. If it is not possible to solve this problem at once, we suggest a dynamical solution: travelling scientists around the world can make lectures for children in schools, bridging the gap in additional education, which can help children to get interested in mathematics, physics, biology and other disciplines. The list of some universities and educational associations worldwide are listed here.
We work with group of scientists from the Netherlands, France, Italy, Germany, Russia, Spain, Belarus, Nepal, USA, Uruguay. SciEd network was established in 2017. For the update of the project please check SciEd news. Please visit the registration page and leave us your contact if you want to get updates. Want to join? Write to us or register online.
