submitting their project until 30th of April 2017. It is organised and promoted by one of EPA's partners, the European Students' Union (ESU), under the framework of a Horizon2020 project. We are working on the possibility to include a parent representative in the jury and to also award a special parental prize.
In Europe many STEM teachers are looking for new methods to make their classes more interactive and student-centred, enriching students’ learning experiences and growing interest in STEM subjects. In the meantime, the demand for STEM-related skills is increasing, while enrolment rates in STEM-based degree programs remains low.
What if we took a different approach? What if we encouraged students from a young age, be they boys or girls and no matter the stereotypes surrounding their environment, to take the challenge to understand one or several of the world’s problems from a STEM perspective? What if this competition was open now?
This Horizon 2020 project addresses the increasing demand for professionals in STEM-fields using innovative digital techniques and social media to make these careers more attractive for youngsters.
