SO2: Transfer of innovative STEM teaching methods to a large number of teachers, an e-Learning Area that will be developed in order to help individuals exploring and sharing innovative tools and techniques to make STEM subjects attractive in the eyes of the students.
SO3: Explore the use of ICT in STEM education, to enhance its introduction in traditional teaching methods and create technology-rich learning environments for students.
SO4: Helping students to develop important transversal skills such as creative thinking, problem solving, etc., that can be utilised by young people in the labour market.
Target Groups: Whereas STUDENTS are targets of all education efforts, TEACHERS are the central agents of the educational ecosystem and their roles has changed from that of primary source of information to someone who creates structure and provide advice for students, monitors their progress, assesses their accomplishments and works as a coach. SCHOOL ADMINISTRATIONS are also within the target group because of their critical role as leaders and decision makers.
