Science Education & Outreach

Promoting science education has always been a core activity of the GYA. Members of the GYA believe very strongly that scientists need to do more to contribute to society than simply advance their individual research agendas. In different countries, GYA members have engaged in science education at schools and universities in their home countries or in the countries of other members. Whereas science education generally needs to be locally “anchored” and implemented, the GYA has observed that contributions from international scientists make the activities even more attractive and motivating for the target group. At a more structural level, the GYA contributes to organizing the exchange of experience and to globalizing best practice examples.
