Summer school

This Community of Practice focuses on the past, present and future of inGenious, its events, activities, communication and much more.

The four topics are:  

1) The Summer School: You can share your expectations, ask questions that you would like to have answered or find partners for future project. After the Summer School you will be able to continue the discussions. Threads will be started following what happens in the summer school. There is also space for you to “meet” other participants who will be joining the Summer School. 

2) Communication linked to the video "Ignite your future: see the description below*

3) Communication linked to the inGenious competition: see the description below*

4) The Encyclopedia of useful resources: Here we have collected all the useful educational resources and links that you have shared during the past CoPs. Please feel free to use them and to add some more. 

* The communications session of this CoP is dedicated to new important initiatives that will be launched in Autumn 2013 as part of the inGenious back-to-school campaign dedicated to raise awareness on the need to invest in STEM education and in cultivating young STEM talent for Europe. The focus will be on two main initiatives: the launch of the inGenious main video Ignite your future; and of the new inGenious competition for schools.

The session supports the Barcelona summer school workshop Dissemination of inGenious (and science projects in general) and offers the opportunity to those of you who won’t be there, or will attend other workshops, to contribute to and shape inGenious communications over the coming year.

We look forward to hearing from you from Barcelona!

You can use the hashtag #inG_school to share your thoughts on the Summer school via Facebook and on Twitter. Tune in to our Facebook page ( and on Twitter site (@inGenious_EU) to receive updates during the event, ask questions and share experiences and pictures.
