COSMOS: Creating Organizational Structures for Meaningful Science education through Open Schooling

Professor Daphne Goldman and Dr. Ariel Sarid won the EU Horizon 2020 call for promoting science with and for society (SWAF) - "COSMOS: Creating Organizational Structures for Meaningful Science education through Open Schooling for all," ​in which

Prof. Goldman and Dr. Sarid are the principal investigators from Israel.

COSMOS is about "opening the schools to their community via partnerships that cultivate meaningful science education for all". This project aspires to address several societal challenges acknowledge by the European Union: cultivating young peoples' interest in science and developing competences for lifelong learning- scientific and environmental literacy and responsible and involved citizenship. The project focuses on developing and implementing participatory learning processes in and as a community in the area of science education. It will support teachers and school staff in creating 'Communities of Practice' that develop and implement inquiry-based learning units around locally relevant socio scientific issues. These will serve as a means of opening the school to their community in order to foster science education relevant to the school community and all citizens.

The COSMOS consortium is comprised of several partner countries: Belgium, England, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden and the Czech Republic. The partners in each country include an institution for higher education and a societal partner. The  Beit Berl team includes Rafaela Babish and Alina Rafael, who will support Prof. Goldman and Dr. Sarid in implementing the project within the participating schools and the professional development of the school teams. The Research and Development Experiments and Initiatives Department in the Ministry of Education is a partner in the project.
