Fostering Science Through STEM Education

 

Short Info: Fostering science through STEM education (FOSTEM) aims to address a major deficiency in primary and secondary schools in North Macedonia: to inspire and encourage pupils to study STEM related fields. For this purpose, the project aims to ease learning of such  courses through numerous experiments with tangible results in the form of robotics, 3D printing, mechatronics, chemistry and physics experiments; all aided by micro-computing platforms.
