Female Empowerment in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in Higher Education
ARIS is delighted to announce its participation to this new project, which is funded by the EU under the ERASMUS+ Programme. FeSTEM aims to promote an innovative method and pedagogy that will allow Higher Education students to use traditional and computationally rich media to create meaningful, shareable exhibits that will act as mentoring models for encouraging girls and women to remain active in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
FeSTEM is a transnational collaboration between partners from Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Spain and Slovenia. It is coordinated by the Cyprus Interaction Lab of the Cyprus University of Technology and the partners are the University of Macedonia, the European centre of studies and initiatives CESIE, the Magenta Consultoría Projects S.L.U., the Education Centre Geoss and ARIS.
The project successfully kicked-off on the 30th of January 2020 in Limassol, Cyprus. The partners met for the first time and had the chance to discuss in detail the project tasks and milestones. A common work plan was agreed upon on the methodology to be followed for the successful implementation of the project and the achievement of its goals.
