A STEM Alliance, Scientix & STE(A)M IT webinar was hosted on Tuesday, 2 November 2021 at 17:00 CET. It addressed the importance of contextualizing STEM careers in integrated STEM teaching. Attendees had the opportunity to ask our guest speakers, Claire Flammang and Martha Hoebens, any questions about how STEM careers can be contextualized in class, what teachers need to consider according to their students' level and what kind of resources, materials and tools they can use while designing their lessons to address real-life problems and STEM careers.
Martha Hoebens: For more than 10 years Martha has been advising education and business on how they can come to a collaboration with each other that benefits to benefit students. She also gives training courses to teachers, including on guiding students towards their final exams and on thinking about education in the broadest sense of the word. Martha advises on the cooperation between education and business, and offers schools, organizations, companies, and teachers inspiration and tools to start their collaboration, give it a boost or make it more sustainable.
