The BLOOM Stories Competition has its winners! Congratulations to Semih-Essendemir and Honorata Pereira for their brilliant classroom implementations of the BLOOM School Box bioeconomy resources!
Organized in collaboration with the STEM Discovery Campaign 2020, primary and secondary school teachers of all subjects were invited to compete in the different categories of the BLOOM Stories Competition by organising classrooms and online activities using bioeconomy, and by sharing their stories about it.
Out of eighteen eligible entries, selected by European Schoolnet, the BLOOM Stories Competition jury panel has decided to award the winners in the following categories:
Together with the finalists’ entries, the winners’ stories of adaptation and stories of implementation will soon be available in the BLOOM School Box, a collection of bioeconomy related teaching resources which educators can use to introduce the concept of bioeconomy in their classrooms as a trigger to raise student interest in science subjects and their awareness of important societal challenges.
The winners of the competition will also have the opportunity to attend a teacher training workshop in Brussels, with travel, accommodation and meals covered!
Congratulations to the winners and finalists and thanks to all the participants who contributed to using bioeconomy as an innovative way of engaging students with current issues facing today’s society!
