Transcript of STEM Ed UNESCO

Bridging Cultures through Science for a Sustainable Environment
Secondary Education
The UNESCO Engineering Initiative (UEI) was established in 2011 to address major challenges in engineering
UNESCO and its partners are giving secondary students the opportunity to explore and cultivate their interests in engineering.

TVET comprises formal, non-formal and informal learning for the world of work.

UNESCO leads the global debate by advocating for the rethinking of TVET to enhance its role in developing more equitable and sustainable societies
E-learning knowledge network in the Mediterranean which has become a model for quality online teacher training and education for students.
Avicenna was launched by UNESCO in November 2002 with funding from the European Commission through its Euro-Mediterranean Information Society (EUMEDIS) programme.
Within this virtual knowledge network, professors produce courses in scientific and engineering fields online using their university’s curriculum.

Engineering Education
Not all schools could afford a lab – but that was until 1996, when UNESCO together with the IUPAC and many other donors developed the Global Micro-Science Experiments Project with methodology developed by RADMASTE Centre, S. Africa.

The kits, that come with booklets for teachers and students, are portable, cost-effective and safe and can be used in primary, secondary and tertiary education.

Global Micro-Science
Experiments Project

In 2011, in the context of the International Year of Chemistry,
a new kit featuring Water Testing Experiments was added.

Science Education aims not only to generate a more science-oriented youth, but places particular emphasis on the education of girls
The Unit brings science to less advantaged areas of the world, while abolishing gender stereotypes

Traget 9.5:Enhance scientific research, upgrade the technological capabilities of industrial sectors in all countries, in particular developing countries, including, by 2030, encouraging innovation and increasing the number of research and development workers per 1 million people by [x] percent and public and private research and development spending

UNITWIN/ UNESCO Chairs Programme
Public communication of science
One of UNESCO’s mandates is to advance secondary education, especially for girls, in its member states.
The UEI maintains that encouraging more youth to pursue engineering at the tertiary level is of primary importance for the sustainable development of societies.
The UEI is increasing the visibility of engineering in secondary schools.
Through: joint programs and ‘hands-on’ activities
