June 1, 2018

Today, 1st of June 2018, the COMnPLAY SCIENCE project has officially started! The full title of the project is “Learning science the fun and creative way: coding, making, and play as vehicles for informal science learning in the 21st century”.

The COMnPLAY SCIENCE project aims to help Europe better understand the new ways in which non-formal and informal science learning is taking place through various coding, making, and play activities that young Europeans (children, adolescents and young adults) are nowadays increasingly engaged with, outside school and higher education science classrooms, beyond the formal boundaries of science education.

The project has a 3-year duration and has received 3,1M€ funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The consortium consists of 11 distinguished members from 10 European countries (Austria, Finland, Germany, Greece, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, UK) bringing together the multifaceted necessary expertise required for the project, complementing each another, representing the stakeholders in the world of innovative informal science learning, and reflecting the geographical, cultural and socioeconomic diversity of Europe.
