During the first ever STEM Discovery Week, from 22 to 29 April 2016, ninety-four STEM Discovery events took place across Europe.
As part of this campaign the STEM4YOU competition was organised from April to 15 May 2016 and 32 schools from 25 European countries submitted entries in two categories: the STEM Discovery Event category and the video category. After a pre-selection by pedagogical advisers and experts from the project, an international jury of experts selected the eleven overall winners on 21 June 2016. The panel consisted of top level representatives from the STEM Alliance partner companies - CSR Europe, European Schoolnet, the European Petrochemical Association, IBM, Lenovo, and Microsoft.
The jury was fascinated by the diversity and high quality of the finalists' work. This year one of the main evaluation criteria was the creativity and applicability of the submissions - and the combination of fun with making science.
Below are the winners of the STEM4YOU competition in the two categories: STEM Discovery Event category and the video category. The teachers who submitted these competition entries will be invited to attend an award ceremony during the STEM Alliance high-level event on 24 November in Brussels, where they will get the chance to discuss their experiences. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to everyone who took part in the initiative!
