GirlsInSTEM project, several activities are planned.
Bootcamps. These are one week long events with a group of young girls, where one of the developed toolkits is used with a group for the first time. Interested? You can
subscribe and obtain information on the bootcamps on the Toolkits page. They are planned between 6/2021 and 10/2021
Pilot tests. During development, pilot tests will be done with the toolkits. Pilot tests will be deployed in all participating countries, to experiment the project outputs with groups of young people aged between 14 and 25 yo. Special needs individuals will also be involved for this. Pilot tests will be instrumental for reviewing and improving the project’s tangible deliverables.
Mentoring program Youth who will participate in the project activities will also be invited to get involved in a mentoring program. Mentors affiliated to the participating organizations will accompany female youth in deepening their knowledge for one specific STEM area. The mentoring program will be implemented in partnership with local NGOs, enterprises, instructional environments, etc. based in the participating organization countries. These partners will be offering volunteering opportunities for young people involved in our project, related to the project topics.
The mentoring program will involve all youth who will have participated in at least one mobility activity. Youngsters will be invited to choose from the topics they have previously discovered and explore them in more detail. For this purpose, they will be assigned a mentor - a person from the staff of the participating organizations.
