Erasmus+ Course overview
Our course focused on STEM aims to help you to get new innovative ideas for hands-on activities because there is no more practical field. We should rather say fields because STEM is the interdisciplinarity itself.
The course is interesting not only for educators who teach STEM but also for non-STEM teachers that want to get into its mysteries and implement some STEM curricula in their schools.
The content of the course is divided in 11 separated and yet linked modules. We will show you different approaches and give you new ideas how to get new innovative ideas for hands-on activities in class because they are crucial for all the STEM fields. You will pick the ones that suit you best for your respective subject.
Following blended learning methods, you will see that STEM can be applied to everyday life.

- Generate ready‐to‐use materials and ideas to support the organisational development and quality improvement in the STEM field skills, support cooperation between institutions and employers.
- Develop relevant, high-level skills such as decision making, collaboration, communication, critical thinking and other key competences through STEM teaching methods, enhance the good quality of mainstream education.
- Meet colleagues of different nationalities within the EU, engage in a cross-cultural learning experience, exchange ideas and build a network for future international cooperation.
- Gain a broader understanding of practices, policies, and systems of education in different countries, cultivate mutual respect, intercultural awareness and embed common educational and training values.
