STEM Discovery Week 2018 is a joint international initiative that invites projects, organisations and schools across Europe and around the world, to celebrate careers and studies in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The tagline for this year's campaign "say yes to STEM" describes the partners' open-minded and dedicated support to STEM subjects at school, as well as wide-ranging collaboration among stakeholders in the area.
