Improving STEM skills of teachers and other educators in Croatian counties

This project seeks to strengthen the capacity of primary school institutions in Split-Dalmatia County, Lika-Senj County and gravitational areas with the aim of improving the STEM skills of teachers and other educators. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. This project wants to establish a regional science center based in Split with a branch in Gospić, and later it will be applicable in the entire Adriatic Croatia. These two centers will separate project activities for the establishment of a system strengthening STEM skills. The Split establishment aims to attract schools from the gravitational area in order to provide teaching staff, but also students with quality access to all necessary facilities for work in the STEM area and capacity development. Another goal will be to modernize the infrastructure and the procurement of equipment that will be used for the project activity. Such infrastructure and equipment will encourage the development of creativity and innovation, intellectual curiosity, planning, cooperation and joint sustainable action and create potential new funding sources such as crowdfunding campaigns. 


  • Establish a regional science center which strengthen STEM skills in primary schools
