Welcome to ICSE


ICSE (International Centre for STEM Education) is an internationally connected research centre that is located at the University of Education in Freiburg, Germany. The ultimate aim of ICSE is to help improve STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education across Europe through practice-related research and its transfer into practice.

The work of ICSE and its partners focuses on the following six areas: inquiry based learning, real-life contexts, connections to the world of work, interdisciplinary STEM teaching, socio-scientific issues, diversity in classrooms and gender aspects in STEM teaching.

In order to support an implementation of these elements in STEM teaching, three aspects are central to ICSE: practice-related research, working on the national as well as international level and cooperating with key actors from the field of STEM education.

Brand new: Our digital Escape Room

blue and green logo with a red lock in the right upper corner saying: Can You Escape?

With a loud bang, the door slams shut behind you and you know immediately: you’re locked in! After you’ve had a quick look around, you realize that there’s another door on the opposite side of the room. It’s also locked, but maybe you can open it by entering the right combination on the control panel next to the door? But how can you find out this combination? Will you manage to free yourself in time?

Check out our brand new digital escape room to find out!
