Schedule for StarT 2020–2021
StarT is organized annually every academic year. The schedule below describes the annual events of StarT. You can of course carry out projects according to your own schedule but many features of StarT take place at a specific time, so it is good to keep the schedule in mind if you want to participate in StarT.
The registration to become a member of the international StarT community for the upcoming StarT season opens in May. Registration is optional but recommended: those who have registered as StarT learning communities can be offered extra support and latest news of the current season.
We hope that every StarT learning community shares the joy of learning in their own community by organizing a StarT Day: this way children and youngsters get to present their work for example to their parents and others.
Reporting opens on the 1st of December 2020. You can report your work and participate in the StarT competition by filling in an online form with links to your videos and learning diaries. Make sure you have reported your projects and best practices by 14.2.2021!
Late May–early June
The StarT season culminates at the International StarT Gala, where the best projects and best educational practices of the year are awarded!
June 2021: Winners of the awards are released at the International LUMA StarT Gala 2021 in Espoo, Finland. The gala is a part of the International LUMAT Symposium.
