STEM for Youth

Enjoy Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

The STEMforYOUTH is a European educational project for students and teachers of secondary education and offers a series of “challenges” in seven (7) thematic subjects: ENGINEERING-MATHEMATICS-PHYSICS-ASTRONOMY-CHEMISTRY-MEDICINE-CITIZEN SCIENCE AT SCHOOL.

The challenges are teaching modules/courses and consist in a useful toolbox for teachers to present science and technology in a pleasant and entertaining way in the classroom. In this way, the young people come into contact with STEM, develop their knowledge and skills and they are helped in choosing a relative direction of their studies.

SEVEN ENGINEERING COURSE - CHALLENGES FOR SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS

The Eugenides Foundation as partner has developed the following seven (7) Engineering challenges targeted to secondary school students (aged 12-18) for implementation in formal and informal settings:

Water Rockets. How high can a model water rocket fly? (Aeronautic and Mechanical Engineering)

- Handheld Vacuum Cleaner. Can dust cleaning be fun? (Electrical Engineering)

- Hydraulic Arms. Jack it up! Lift a load using Hydraulic Arms. (Mechanical Engineering)

- Floating nests raft. Ever Heard Of A Floating Bird Nest? (Marine Engineering)

Building an underwater robot. (Ocean (Marine) Engineering)

- Solar powered (B.E.A.M) bots. Make your own solar powered robot to follow the sun! [(Electrical (Electronic) Engineering and Robotics]

- Obstacle avoiding Arduino robot. Build and program a robotic vehicle that avoids obstacles (Robotics)

Students are working in small teams and follow a 6-step process, using engineering design principles and working methodology of engineering in order to solve a practical problem such as building a hydraulic arm or a robot (B.E.A.M.) that powered by solar energy.
