A new international EU funded project to help girls choose Steam study disciplines.
S Team Schools Team Up is the new Project that involves some associations and schools in Italy Croatia and Spain to achieve gender equality between boys and girls in the study of Steam subjects starting from secondary school of first grade.
The partnership behind the S-TEAM project was formed to involve entities with different areas of expertise and levels of action. The partnership comprises a training institution (Assoform), a primary school (Ivan Cankar Primary School), and an association (Women Space Extremadura). Each partner has experience in addressing social issues through education, which will enable the project to tackle gender issues in STEM from various perspectives. Assoform and Women Space have connections to the job market and civil society, while Ivan Cankar Primary School has a direct connection to the primary beneficiaries of the project. READ MORE
The winning group of students from the local schools involved in the STEM training course, aimed at 12-13-year-olds, will have the opportunity to present and realize their winning project at a final Hackathon in Rimini, Italy in September 2023. This event will be hosted by Assoform and Karis school and will involve students from other countries as well. Five students and one teacher from each participating country will travel to Italy to participate in the Hackathon, where they will use STEM tools provided by ASSOFORM to work on their projects. All students will be representatives of their school and will be awarded for their participation. READ MORE
ASSOFORM and WOMEN SPACE have chosen useful tools and materials to support the learning journey in the S-TEAM project, providing information on the main resources that will be used during the course, such as the OTTO DIY kit, Tinkercad, 3D printing, slicing software, and coding platform based on Scratch. These tools will help the kids to develop STEM skills, enhance creativity and promote problem-solving abilities. In addition, the Partners will offer tips and guidelines on how to use these resources effectively, as well as links to external sources for further exploration.
