539 activities registered for STEM Discovery Week in 34 countries before we kick off on Monday!

539 activities in 34 countries are now published as part of the STEM Discovery Week campaign! The goals that were set for the campaign have, therefore, already been reached, namely to publish at least 500 activities in STEM education that are organised as part of the STEM Discovery Week.

Thanks for your dedicated support to the campaign and for spreading the message! Your support has been essential to the success of this campaign!

Now there are 21 projects, 37 organisations and 32 schools confirmed as official partners of the STEM Discovery Week. And more partners are joining us every week!

Please note that anyone can still upload activities to the map and we would of course like to see as many of them ass possible before we kick off on Monday 23 April.

Next week, during the STEM Discovery Week, we will connect live via video to selected activities happening in different countries in Europe! We have published a provisional calendar on the Scientix website with the scheduled video streams, here: http://www.scientix.eu/events/campaigns/sdw18/streaming

In addition, several webinars are scheduled for STEM Discovery Week that you may want to attend and/or share.
