Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 1 febbraio 2019

Engineering and technology are growing industries. The next generation of scientists require a strong STEM foundation today. How can education systems share best practices and new information about STEM education in an easy way? Inspired by the mission to promote and support Europe-wide collaboration among all STEM education and industry professionals researchers and policymakers, the founders of Scientix built an online platform to share best practices and the most up-to-date ideas on STEM. The project, which has around 500 teacher ambassadors from over 38 European countries, supports STEM professionals by organizing workshops, webinars and other activities. “While the project connects professionals, it impacts students,” says Dr. Gras-Velazquez, who notes that children develop a “fear of science because in the beginning they are not able to grasp the concepts thoroughly.” She adds that the Scientix model works well for all STEM subjects providing the teachers are happy to work together and build “an active community and explore new methods of teaching.”Dr. Agueda Gras-Velazquez is the Science Program Manager of European Schoolnet (EUN) and in charge of overseeing and coordinating all the Math and Science projects in which EUN is involved. Agueda is also in charge of the day-to-day management of Scientix, an online European collaboration platform in STEM teaching, research and policy.CMRubinWorld’s award-winning series, The Global Search for Education, brings together distinguished thought leaders in education and innovation from around the world to explore the key learning issues faced by most nations. The series has become a highly visible platform for global discourse on 21st century learning, offering a diverse range of innovative ideas which are presented by the series founder, C. M. Rubin, together with the world’s leading thinkers. (For more information on CMRubinWorld by David Wine)
