Ellinogermaniki Agogi is hosting the International Conference on Creating Conditions for Deeper Learning in Science on 29-30 June 2019, in Athens, Greece. The conference will bring together researchers, practitioners and decision makers from all around the world to investigate the concept of Deeper Learning and the conditions under which it could lead students to develop mastery in scientific subjects and the methods how these achievements can be assessed.

Since 1966, the Working Group on Physics Didactics/Werkgroep Natuurkunde Didactiek (WND) organizes a conference for physics teachers. This conference has grown over the years into a major event where some 800 teachers, didactics and education developers from the Netherlands and Belgium meet each other. During this event iMuSciCA held two workshops introducing the project to a total of 40 participants.
On 17 November 2018 iMuSciCA was presented at the Velewe inter-disciplinary congress consisting of subject-specific lectures (geography, biology, chemistry, physics or natural sciences) and 32 work sessions in which topics are worked out for the classroom. iMuSciCA gave two workshops for a total of 49 teachers. The congress was part of the action plan Science Information and Innovation, an initiative of the Flemish Community with the cooperation of the Ministry of the Flemish Community. The congress was open to all science teachers.
The article in Impact, Volume 2018, Number 9, December 2018, pp. 47-49, written by Katsouros Vassilis, from Athena Research and Innovation Centre dealing with iMuSciCA is now published in open access on the world’s largest resource for scholarly publications, IngentaConnect.
“iMuSciCA – through engagement in music activities – supports mastery of core academic content on STEM subjects (Physics, Geometry, Mathematics, and Technology) for secondary school students (aged 12-16) alongside with the development of their creativity and deeper learning skills. To reach this goal, iMuSciCA introduces new methodologies and innovative technologies supporting active, discovery-based, collaborative, personalised, and more engaging learning.”

On October 19, in France, the public was sensitized to iMuSciCA thanks to an exceptional evening that took place in a concert hall, also a music school, at La Source, in Fontaine.
The musicians from the iMuSciCA team, as well as two students who tested the solution during a pilot course, offered to give a concert based on iMuSciCA tools.
The evening was also marked by a presentation of iMuSciCA via a demonstration zone that appealed to the public (students, teachers, researchers, musicians, journalists).
