Playing and Acting Learning Towards Science

The modern world changes at a fast pace. It is therefore essential that schools provide quality teaching and learning in science and technology subjects, allowing pupils to learn both knowledge and practical skills. This combination of knowledge and skills is demanded by the European labor market. The problem is that the proportion of students that are studying science has been decreasing according to the report, “Evolution of Student Interest in Science and Technology Studies” by the OECD. The European commission has also taken the stand that a shortage may occur in the labor market of technological and scientific staff and that Europe's long-term capacity to be an innovative leader may also decline. Another issue is that of young people dropping out of education and training completely. It is very important to find ways to encourage them to return to active education on a sustainable long-term basis.
