WELCOME TO THE SNAC PROJECT.

Seismology in school education can promote scientific literacy at all levels but its benefits go far wider than simply providing scientific knowledge about this everyday natural phenomenon.
It provides the basis for informed action to protect lives and property on local, regional, and national levels.

ABOUT SNAC.

SNAC project, building on the concept of Open Schooling, aims to perform an extended proof of concept experiment to a) transform schools in South Eastern Mediterranean basin countries to local hubs of education, innovation and information about earthquakes and disaster prevention, connecting them with local authorities, local civilian protection agencies, local business, research and science centres and other local stakeholders in the process and b) engage students in real-life projects that are proposing innovative solutions adopted to the local conditions by employing real‐problem solving skills, handling and studying situations, and participating in meaningful and motivating science inquiry activities on earthquake disaster prevention and mitigation. The objective of this combination is on one hand to increase children’s and students’ interest in science and how it affects every-day life and on the other to stimulate teacher motivation on up-taking innovative teaching methods, subjects and practices to enrich and renew the science curriculum.
