The second stage of the Stem4Youth Competition has just started!

Thanks everyone to your warm participation!

We have got many nice projects of student teams and had hard time to choose only the best six of them. Those six teams will be interviewed during next week and only three will be chosen to win the main prize of the Competition – the trip to European Facility of Nuclear Research (CERN).

One additional team will join those three and it is you to decide which one! Visit our voting page (https://olcms.stem4youth.pl/competition/vote/2), take a look at the project summaries and vote for the teams you think are the best. You can vote once per day.

The voting closes on April 26th at 5:00pm (CEST).

These online sessions will be chaired by the authors of the problems, and will be primarily dedicated for the students and teachers who have already worked on appropriate topics.

During each (appx. 45-60 min.) session, STEM authors will answer both students and teachers questions, as well as doubts about evaluation criteria and further problems details. If you cannot joint sessions, short summaries will be published on OLCMS platform and as update at the end of this webpage – available after the online events.

STEM Discovery Week is coming!

SDW18 banner

STEM Discovery Week 2018 is a joint international initiative that invites projects, organisations and schools across Europe and around the world, to celebrate careers and studies in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The tagline for this year’s campaign “say yes to STEM” describes the partners’ open-minded and dedicated support to STEM subjects at school, as well as wide-ranging collaboration among stakeholders in the area.

Interested to become a partner?

By committing to the STEM Discovery Week 2018, the partners agree to:

  • Organise and share information about activities in STEM education as part of the STEM Discovery Week campaign.
  • Encourage third parties to support and join the initiative by organising STEM activities of their own and share information about them as part of the STEM Discovery Week campaign.
  • Publish on their web page information in support of the STEM Discovery Week campaign, hence facilitating an active exchange of information among projects, organisations and schools.

For more information on the registration steps that potential partners need to follow, please consult this document here.
