Register now for the Science is Wonderful! Live 2021 online platform

Register for Science is Wonderful Live! online talks with schools before 20 October 2021 to engage with school pupils and their teachers about your work in MSCA.

Every year since 2015, researchers engage with young audiences to demonstrate the impact of their work on people’s daily lives through Science is Wonderful!

MSCA researchers bring the world of science, research and innovation to teachers and pupils in primary and secondary school.

At any time between 22 and 26 November 2021, Science is Wonderful! Live offers MSCA researchers, coordinators and alumni the opportunity to meet up with pupils and their teachers during online talks.

Register and interact

The aim of Science is Wonderful! Live is to offer a broad range of opportunities for kids all over Europe to interact with researchers in their mother tongues. To achieve this, we encourage you to register by 20 October 2021 and to spread the word.

Six good reasons to register for Science is Wonderful! Live

  1. Science is Wonderful! Live is a dedicated videoconferencing platform, allowing you to create interactive exchanges with teachers and pupils.
  2. You are free to decide your availability. You may be present for a few hours only, for a day or two, or for the whole week. You don’t need to know your precise availabilities at this stage because you can fill in your virtual calendar later on the platform.
  3. Your dedicated researcher profile on the platform will share information such as your language, your field of research, and the age of the pupils you’d like to talk to. Teachers from all over the EU will research profiles and send requests in advance of the event’s week.
  4. We need native speakers in all EU languages among our MSCA researchers and alumni.
  5. No specific compulsory preparation is required on your side, except to liaise with the teachers before the talk with the pupils. However, we encourage you to think beforehand of a nice hands-on experiment, a do-it-yourself activity or a quiz/game to show your work in an entertaining way.
  6. You will be invited to conduct a technical check of your IT equipment before the online talks and you will receive specific guidelines on the use of the Science is Wonderful! Live platform.
