STEM has become one of the most important values in European education.STEM is based on skills generally using the left half of the brain and thus is logic driven. Much research and data shows that activities like Arts, which uses the right side of the brain supports and fosters creativity, which is essential to innovation.

The challenges of our generation will demand creative solutions, so we need to encourage innovation in art and sciences and rearrange our curriculum. Clearly the combination of superior STEM education combined with Arts education (known as STEAM) should provide us with the education system that offers us the best chance for regaining the innovation leadership essential to the new economy.

Students and teachers in all partner schools have been chosen one topic of interest from STEM as the priority for the school, region and country. The school together with the local community will prepare for 5 days of school workshop activities to show a complex view of
the topic chosen. This conference will be organized in partner schools.

The project will be organized under the auspices of the Czech Commission of UNESCO and the European Parliament representative Mr.Poche.
