Preparing for the future – STEM professions

Every school year, in Romania, one school week is dedicated to “Another kind of school” week. During this week, students participate in extracurricular activities and projects. This year, in my school, Școala Gimnazială Nr. 9 „Nicolae Orghidan” Brașov, between 26th and 30th of March, an event dedicated to STEM education will be organized for providing opportunities for learning STEM topics to young students aged 6 to 11. For five days, students will visit companies, meet engineers, doctors or scientists, make experiments based on Scientix Resources or create posters. STEM education is a priority in our school as we are involved in many national and international educational projects based on STEM topics.

My students aged 10- 11 will visit Ina Schaeffler S.R.L on the 27th. (https://www.schaeffler.ro/remotemedien/media/_shared_media/03_worldwide/02_websites_worldwide/romania_1/SchaefflerRomania_EN_2016.pdf) – a company which is specialized in industry and automotive in order to know more about STEM professions. Then they will present some of the professions and present them to another class. They will make experiments and present their conclusions. A poster session will be held too.
