University Support Activities Towards Teachers of STEM

Hana Bartkova, Institute of Chemical Technology Prague (Czech Republic)


The central mission of the STEM popularization  is to inform public and state policymakers on the critical role that STEM education plays worldwide competitiveness and future economic prosperity and to advocate for policies that will improve STEM education at every level, not only at university level or be focused only on high education and talented students.We try to stress an importance of  hands-on, inquiry-based learning activities, such as learning about the engineering and how to motivate young people to study and understand STEM subjects. Our task is to promote science and technology and encourage teachers of STEM to use new methods in teaching to motivate students.The need to improve teacher education, as well as develop and implement inquiry-based learning methods in this area is very important. The transition from school life to working life is an important aspect of several of the initiatives. One approach to reach the objectives is to invite STEM professionals or university students to schools to encourage younger learners’ interest, while another is to enable teachers and students to visit STEM work places .

The Institute of Chemical Technology Prague (ICTP) cooperates with research and educational institutions (universities, research centers and schools) in Czech Republic and worldwide, works closely with the private sector, as well as with the media. This cooperation is very useful for popularization activities towards target group.At the same time we cooperate with the wide public and have an excellent network for cooperation with schools and pre-schools all around the country.
