Partnerships for Science Education (PAFSE) is a case study of project-based learning applied to real-world problems connected with public health and sustainable development. The EU-funded project organizes science education activities at low secondary level engaging students and school stakeholders (universities, research centres, start-ups, enterprises, governmental organisations, NGOs) in health promotion and disease prevention actions that benefit the health and well-being of the community. Projects leaded by schools are addressed within educational scenarios co-created with partners interested in STEM education and developed under a relevant public health issue through their continuous engagement in open schooling approach.
