The 12th Conference of the European Science Education Research Association (ESERA) in Dublin was another opportunity not only to reflect on different approaches to enhancing our knowledge of learning processes, but – of course – to share our experience
on attracting young people to STEM education and to promote EDU-ARCTIC project. The event was co-hosted by the two largest Irish STEM education research centers, CASTeL at Dublin City University and EPI-STEM at University of Limerick. With over 1000 presenters from all over the world, interesting symposia and interactive poster presentations, ESERA offers a unique opportunity
to engage in discussion about the pressing issues in science, technology and environmental education research with an international research community. We sure learned a lot about important aspects of science education research and practice, but also to encourage new educators to join our STEM-ARCTIC adventure.
