Steam is part of the Matchmaking project. We are implementing this learning scenario with 14 teachers from 5 countries. Stories in accordance with the STEM approach were written with the project partners on the issues that reveal the problem situation. Based on these stories, our aim is to develop students’ skills to solve problems they may encounter in daily life. One of the themes determined in our project, where we touch on the environment in our planning, is the ability to generate renewable energy and solutions.
