STELYS, Science, Technology and Engineering Laboratory for Young Students

$image_alt.data

STELYS is a supportive learning strategy developed at the Department of Physics (UdG) for primary and secondary schools.

It is based on STEM (Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) teachers who have the best in-house and external practices.

The aim of the project is to transmit enthusiasm for science, bringing it closer to the general public. All the experiments are designed to stimulate children’s interest in science and to stimulate curiosity to find science everywhere every day.

The research focusses on promoting STEM knowledge in non-formal spaces as well as on promoting soft-skills to university students by tutoring primary and secondary students, at the time of performing lab and field experiments.

STELYS involves demonstration practices, cross-institutional practices, scientific presentations, public science and in-field innovative projects: Maths and Movement (primary school students), Encouraging STEM skills (secondary school students), free online Physics courses/MOOCs (secondary and first-year university students), Public Science (Researchers night, ‘Fira de la Ciència’, ‘Fira de la Ciència entre tots’).
