Project Goals

• International competition (Technology award) to inspire first-year secondary school students to tackle various (societal) challenges from a technical perspective and experience STEM;

• Organize awareness sessions in schools on technical professions (Renewable energy, Automation and Robotics, Artificial intelligence, Electricity, machining, etc.) with demonstrations/exercises

• Create a toolbox for teachers to help them train and integrate these subjects into their traditional courses (Teacher’s guide, PPT, TTT, student PPT, exercises, etc.)

Project Summary

The strength of the Euregional Technology Award project that provides young people and their environment with knowledge and skills on a large scale, in a way that is accessible to schools, and that it enthuses for a career in STEM.

European research into motivation for STEM education has shown that interest in STEM should be stimulated at an early age. This is the reason why this project focuses on deep learning with a long lasting and sustainable impact.

STEM Acdemy and as such is part of the STEM network in which the main STEM actors in the region are involved and can learn about the insights and results of the project. In this way, this project contributes to achieving the goal of making children more enthusiastic.
