WINNERS OF THE STEM DISCOVERY WEEK COMPETITIONS 2017
This year, the STEM Discovery Week was celebrated from 24 to 30 April and focused on the STEM Professionals go Back to Schools scheme, encouraging companies and schools to collaborate around visit of STEM professionals in classrooms and register their activity through the STEM Alliance.
Additionally, as an incentive to use the "STEM Professionals Go Back To School" Tool, teachers could also participate to the Scientix competition for the STEM Discovery Week 2017 by entering the "Organize your STEM event" competiton!
Participation was really easy: once they had organised their PGB2S related event in their school, they had to submit it also to the "Organize your STEM event" competition! Scientix and STEM Alliance awarded the organisers of the best events by inviting the winners to an expenses-paid (travel, accomodation and subsistence) trip to the Science Projects Workshop 15 (SPW15) in Brussels, Belgium, between 23 and 25 June 2017.
This page presents and showcases all those entries that STEM Alliance selected as winners in the events competition, who are also invited to the Science Projects Workshop at the Future Classroom Lab 23 to 25 June 2017! Congratulations!
