We believe that students know very little about the educational and research possibilities of the other V4 countries. We are going to highlight that mobility between V4 countries during higher career is an interesting and attractive option. In STEM Camp students will present their countries’ achievements and will work jointly on projects. All these international activities can contribute to change students’ attitudes towards mobility which now target mainly the Western countries. The friendships formed during the camp are also a good basis for cooperation at a later stage of their career.
The main objective is to increase the number of STEM professionals in V4 countries in order to sustain the economical growth by supporting girls to achieve a career in STEM professions preferably in the V4 region by arranging a V4 STEM (Science, Technology, Mathematics and Engineering) CAMP for high school girls who are interested in STEM education. The girls will be provided by a science related program frameworked with gamification.
