The aim of the STEM4MATH project is to design, test and evaluate STEM activities that can be implemented in schools in order to improve the children's mathematical skills.

Target ages for the activities are between 6 and 12 years old, focusing on these early stages in order to develop an integrated view of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. All activities will be based on a new didactical model where Real Mathematics become the center of the children's work. Our goals are then twofold: moving towards a more integrated view of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, while keeping a clear focus on the impact in the children's mathematical skills that align and respect National Curricula. 

In this Joint Staff Training Event, teachers from all five participating countries (Belgium, Finland, Portugal, Sweden and Spain) will share their experiences implementing the ten proposed STEM4MATH activities for the age-group 9-12. Each activity will first be presented by the developing team and by the pilot teachers. Afterwards, a Focus Group for that activity will be organized to facilitate the discussion among teachers, pilot-teachers, and developing team in order to review all details and study how to improve each activity. 
Please, note that the tight schedule will allow everyone to attend all presentations, but focus-groups will happen in parallel sessions. 
All Primary and Secondary School teachers are invited to join the presentations and the discussions. Even though our doors will be open for the whole meeting, certificates of attendance and coffee breaks can only be offered to participants when registered through this webpage.
