SHAPING, ENHANCING AND NURTURING STEM IN EUROPE

The Way Forward – Invitation to Final Conference

Are you interested in the SENSE project results and conclusions? Would you like to contribute to the debate on STEM learning? You are invited to the Final Conference of The SENSE project. It will be held on 24th February 2021, 10:00 – 14:00 Brussels time online. Skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) are becoming an increasingly important part of basic literacy in today’s knowledge economy. Europe faces a shortage in science-knowledgeable people at all levels of society and the economy. Overcoming these challenges will require input from specialists and from stakeholder groups. The solutions shall support leaners of all backgrounds and talents in developing positive attitudes to science, and help ensure sustainable societies into the future.

The Shaping, Enhancing and Nurturing STEM in Europe Project is a result of a two years´ cooperation of a partnership of Regional Authorities governing education (including VET) on the regional level – Zlínský kraj in the Czech Rep., VET providers  – GRETB in Ireland, UTC in Italy, two enterprises with strong cooperation with companies – Trexima in the Czech Rep. and  SES13-19 Ltd. in the UK, CPIP – a centre for teachers training and supporting young people in Romania,  and University of Cyprus bringing a great experience in the area of applying ICT tools to engage young people in STEM. 

We have worked in the area of promoting STEM careers among young people in a modern and attractive way for two years. Our key topics were:

  • could volunteers from a STEM related jobs and disciplines help bring a new and inspiring perspective to STEM lessons and career opportunities?
  • could a contest based approach and use of modern technologies attract young people´s attention to STEM learning?
  • could teachers identify and support young talents in STEM effectively?
  • could Authorities, decision makers and other stakeholders contribute to STEM learning attraction?
