The LearnSTEM Pedagogical Model integrates sustainability and ecology into the learning content. It is important to integrate these topics into STEM lessons, because STEM and sustainability are inseparable partners in building a more eco-conscious world. Through STEM, we develop eco-friendly technologies, renewable energy sources, and innovative conservation methods. Scientists, engineers, and mathematicians collaborate to address pressing environmental issues, mitigating climate change, preserving biodiversity, and creating a greener future. That’s why it’s so important to raise awareness of these issues in secondary schools and get students interested in them.
The first transnational partner meeting took place on 25th April 2023 in Konya, Turkiye. Thanks to the great motivation of the project partner and all participants, essential building blocks were set and the LearnSTEM project was successfully launched.
STEM education in secondary schools is the gateway to a world of possibilities. It equips students with essential skills like problem-solving, critical thinking, and creativity. By engaging in hands-on STEM activities, students not only prepare for future careers but also gain a deeper understanding of the world around them. Encouraging STEM in secondary schools fosters innovation and cultivates the next generation of scientists, engineers, and inventors. It’s a vital investment in our future, ensuring that students are ready to tackle the challenges and opportunities of an ever-evolving, technology-driven world. STEM in secondary schools is the foundation for brighter tomorrows.
Today, the first joint online meeting of the partners from LearnSTEM took place. The project partners introduced themselves and their organisations and were able to get to know each other. Thus, the project has started successfully!
