Title: Pre-University Educational Activities are changing the game for Girls in STEM
Date & Time: Nov 30, 2022 5:00 PM UTC+0 (Lisbon time)
Local: Online
Speaker: Stamatis Dragoumanos


About this webinar Stereotyping is an operation of the human mind which is established to process information more quickly. It is a skill and a curse that is being developed while we grow up and it depends on our experiences and the environment we grow up in. STEM education and especially student-centric collaborative educational methods motivate young students to question stereotypes, express their creativity freely and value each other not by their sex or color but by their kindness, their will to collaborate, and their personality. Pre-University Educational Activities encourage young students to go through that process and exploration providing aftermath of refreshing results to observe!
