The CREATIONS scheme, a European project with 16 Partners, involves science teachers and classroom students in inquiry-based initiatives by linking schools and research infrastructures in order to spark young people’s interest in science and in following scientific careers. It centers upon effective community-building between researchers, teachers and students and empowering the latter to use, share and exploit the collective power of unique scientific resources (research facilities, scientific instruments, advanced ICT tools, simulation and visualization applications and scientific databases). Consequently, the strengths of formal schemes (educational field trips, virtual visits, school based masterclasses) and informal (games and student generated apps, hangouts, related artworks like science theatre or student generated exhibits, junior science cafes) are harvested to promote creative inquiry-based learning and appreciate science works. An effective integration of science education with infrastructures supports monitored-for-impact innovative activities in supporting feedback for the take-up of such interventions at large scale. A roadmap assures guidelines for implementation of innovative educational and outreach activities that could act as a reference in both, scientific research outreach and science education.
