Science in School Magazine


Based at EMBL, Science in School is a European journal to promote inspiring science teaching. It covers not only biology, physics and chemistry, but also earth sciences, engineering and medicine, highlighting the best in teaching and cutting-edge research, and focusing on interdisciplinary work. The contents include teaching materials, recent discoveries in science, education projects, interviews with young scientists and inspiring teachers, book reviews, and European events for teachers and schools.

Originally supported by the European Commission, Science in School is published and funded by EIROforum, a collaboration of eight European inter-governmental research organisations, including EMBL. The journal is freely available. Online articles are published in many European languages and an English-language print version is distributed across Europe.

European school teachers are invited to help by:

  • Submitting articles for publication
  • Joining the referee panel and helping to decide which articles to publish
  • Reviewing books and other resources for teachers
  • Translating articles into their own language

EMBL employees are very welcome to get involved too. The editors are always looking for volunteer translators, so if your native tongue is not English and you'd be interested in translating Science in School articles, do get in touch.
