Connecting with STIMEY project
STIMEY project aims to bring science and society together in Europe, and consequently increase the continent’s international competitiveness, and make STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education more relatable to European youths to raise their interests and involvement in STEM careers. This project proposes an educational platform with multi-level components, designed and developed on the base of a well-researched pedagogical framework, which aims to make STEM education more attractive to young people from age 10 to 18 years old. Universities, schools, teachers, students, parents, business and media partners will come together to complete a circle in which STEM becomes a part of the daily life of youths through an educational portal that also prepares them for future careers.
Kati Clements, our technical manager, presented IMAILE at the STIMEY consortium meeting in Jyväskylä, Finland. Both projects share similar objectives and tackle the issues of students’ STEM motivation and the lack of STEM professionals in the labour market in the future.
