Ark of Inquiry: Inquiry Awards for Youth over Europe is a research and development project funded by the European Commission, involving 13 project partners (including UNESCO) from 12 different countries.

The overall aim of the project is to create a “new science classroom”, one which would provide more challenging, authentic and higher-order learning experiences and more opportunities for pupils to participate in scientific practices and tasks, using the discourse of science and working with scientific representations and tools to augment their awareness of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). In addition, it stimulates pupils’ abilities to reflect on, communicate and discuss the importance and implications of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research in society.
