The #livingSTEM project uses the practical experience of Permaculture to involve young people between 10 and 14 years old in scientific subjects, to promote STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) learning. At the same time, it creates awareness with educators and young people about environmental problems, and provides them with some key elements for an environmentally friendly lifestyle. The #livingSTEM project offers more than 50 recreational-educational activities around six themes.
On 15th September 2021 we will hear about these resources and experiences from different educational environments where some of the activities have been implemented.
To attend please register here. (The event will be in Catalan/Spanish)
