Research on STEM Education

The STEM Education Platform (SAPPHIRE) project focuses on the development of a shared, online space for youth students and educators, which will accommodate innovative pedagogical approaches, tools, learning material and courses for professional development. Moreover, the STEM platform will encourage users to exchange ideas and work together within a community. In the framework of IO1 “Research on STEM education”, a case study in STEM education was conducted in each partner country: Bulgaria, Republic of North Macedonia, Lithuania, Cyprus, Portugal, Italy, and Greece. Despite the fact that Intellectual Output 1 was cut from the final project budget, partners decided to proceed with smallscale research, since the collected data would be valuable for the development of the STEM education platform in Intellectual output 2.
