The mascil project supports mathematics and science teachers who seek international connections and want to use new, innovative materials or engage in exchanges.

Mascil not only provides great materials and connects teachers and teacher educators internationally, but it also connects teacher associations, networks and organisations, whose links you can find below. Moreover, mascil works in close collaboration with Scientix, the largest STEM teacher community in Europe. The collaboration between mascil and Scientix can be summarized as follows:

-          materials from mascil are being published on Scientix, so that teachers can easily find them

-          resources from the mascil classroom materials (Plate Restoration) was a winner of the fourth round of the Scientix Resource Awards
(see http://www.scientix.eu/web/guest/scientixawards/resources-competition-4 )

-          Scientix has been involved and will be involved in the midterm and the final mascil conference

-          Scientix has participated in one of the mascil consortium meetings

-          mascil has participated in Scientix events and conferences

 

Mascil has drafted a list of national and international teacher networks:
