Creating the link between science education and social competence development

The project aims to create a link between science education and related school subjects and the development of our social competences. In our project, we are looking for analogies between social and human phenomena and science subjects that help us to understand each other. On the one hand, we can use scientific phenomena as metaphors for social phenomena. On the other hand, by focusing on our social skills and social competences, we can create a reflective relationship with ourselves, which in turn can help to stimulate curiosity and motivation to understand scientific knowledge.

We would like to develop an innovative approach that integrates humanistic and realistic approaches and seeks analogies between the two. By exploiting this connection, students can gain motivation and resources to understand science and, by understanding social phenomena, they can also become closer to themselves and to each other.

In developing the toolkit, we will look for international examples that have been used before and involve educational experts, teachers, trainers and trainers in its development and testing. We organise free workshops and training sessions for teachers and trainers on the subject.
