According to the statistics published in the last 15 years, it is evident that natural sciences and technical fields provided by universities but also high schools in the Slovak Republic and Czech Republic struggle with the low interest of high and elementary school students in these study fields. In the framework of the project, it is planned to organize events and activities including:
- workshops for teachers of natural sciences and technical courses and high school students to improve laboratory skills of high school students
- doors open days of natural sciences and technical fields, mainly for high school students
- trainings for high school teachers of natural sciences and technical courses to improve educational methods – laboratory practice of students
It is also expected that the project partners will together participate on the existing events – labor market trade shows and educational exhibitions. In the framework of the project, promotion tools in the form of a joint web presentation, demonstrating equipment and systems for conducting of experiments and exercises and other promotion materials will be provided. The project will mainly aim at high school students and teachers.
