STEM Conference in Glasgow coming up!

On the 29th of June, an EFDN STEM Conference will be held at Hampden Park, Glasgow.

The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Conference, hosted by the SPFL Trust, is set to be a gathering of professionals, educators, and enthusiasts from various fields within the STEM domain. The event aims to revolutionize the way we educate and prepare our young generation of pioneers and problem solvers for the(ir) future.

From simple classroom experiments to complex challenges and competitions, STEM projects provide a gateway for children to explore, discover, and unlock their full potential and encourage students to pursue further studies or further careers in STEM-related fields.

STEM projects typically involve hands-on activities, problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaboration. They are designed to promote creativity, innovation, and the application of scientific and mathematical concepts to real-world situations. These projects can range from simple classroom experiments to more complex challenges and competitions.

By engaging students in practical, inquiry-based learning experiences, STEM projects aim to foster a deeper understanding of these subjects and encourage students to pursue further studies or further careers in STEM-related fields.
