Are you 18-20 years old? Are you interested in co-designing solutions for science learning? Are you available on the 17th-20th March 2019?
If you said yes to all three of those questions, then Science Gallery Dublin is looking for you!
Science Gallery Dublin will be attending a co-design meeting in Finland to problem-solve solutions for challenges such as “how to make science learning outside the classroom accessible to everyone”, and we intend to take two lucky applicants along with us. Learners and partner organisations from more than 15 other EU countries will also be attending.
“What is co-design?”, I hear you ask. Co-design is when you involve those affected by problems in the actual process of of generating solutions. So, as we will be problem-solving challenges that affect learners, we want to involve learners such as yourselves in this process.
This is part of a project called SySTEM 2020, a European-wide study into Science Learning Outside the Classroom, which is examines how young people learn across Europe. At Science Gallery Dublin, we believe that learning can take many shapes and forms. We want to map this ‘landscape of learning’ and find out from you how it can be best facilitated and improved.
- What does learning outside the classroom look like for you?
- What do you think are the challenges or barriers to learning?
The deadline for submissions is 9am Monday February 4th. We will then select the best responses and invite you for an informal chat, either in person or via video chat on Wednesday, February 6th. All costs for the trip will be covered.
If you have any questions please get in contact with firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that this competition is not open to any current or former employees of Science Gallery Dublin.
We are looking forward to hearing what you have to say on this topic!
