Promotion of STEM education by key specific challenges and their impact on our life and career perspectives.

STEMFORYOUTH produces a comprehensive, multidisciplinary series of courses presenting key STEM discipline challenges to support young people in their education. Contents are organised around six STEM disciplines: Mathematics, Physics, Astronomy, Chemistry, Engineering and Medicine, and one trans-disciplinary module (Citizen Science at Schools, i.e. scientific projects created by students with no specialised training in science, based on their concerns on everyday aspects of science.

STEMFORYOUTH produces a comprehensive, multidisciplinary series of courses presenting key STEM discipline challenges to support young people in their education. Contents are organised around six STEM disciplines: Mathematics, Physics, Astronomy, Chemistry, Engineering and Medicine, and one trans-disciplinary module (Citizen Science at Schools, i.e. scientific projects created by students with no specialised training in science, based on their concerns on everyday aspects of science.

For each discipline, seven to nine modules are presented largely through their practical applications and their impact on our everyday life and work. STEM4YOUTH also shows the skills and competences developed in each discipline and required by the labour market. STEMFORYOUTH therefore helps young people to take conscious decisions on their field of study and finally on their career path.

Course materials and guidelines are complemented by community-building activities. STEM4YOUTH engages students, teachers, parents and citizens in general, in our social networks, and actively involves them in its events taking place in the streets or during other science festivals, so as to make them feel part of an international community. Finally, STEM4YOUTH gathers feedback from the school courses and produces a set of recommendations for policy makers on how to improve STEM education across the school systems of partner countries.
