The STE(A)M IT project is organised in 6 work packages.
WP1 ensure that STE(A)M IT outputs and activities are delivered on time, to budget and to specification.
D1.1 - Guidelines for partners
WP2 works on creating and testing a conceptual reference framework for integrated STE(A)M education. Based on research on the topic and the contributions from the MoE STEM WG members as well as from focus group teachers with experience in integrated STEM teaching, the project will define the 1st reference framework for STE(A)M education.
Task 2.1: Setting the scene
Task 2.2: Call for teachers to be part of the STE(A)M IT focus group
Task 2.3: 1st Co-creative workshop on integrated STEM education
Task 2.4: The focus group teachers will co-design STE(A)M learning scenarios that will contribute to the overall STE(A)M framework and will test them in class
Task 2.5: 2nd Co-creation workshop
Task 2.6: The MoE STEM WG will meet a 3d time after the 1st run of the WP3 MOOCs to evaluate the results (Evaluation workshop)
Task 2.7: First STE(A)M Framework

Task 3.3: Primary education STE(A)M competition
Task 3.4: Secondary education STE(A)M competition
Task 3.5: Rerun of the two MOOCs
Task 3.6: Community exchange on STE(A)M approaches
D3.1 - MOOCs for integrated STEM teaching for primary education and secondary education
D3.2 - STE(A)M competition results
D3.3 - Community exchange on STE(A)M approaches
WP4 works on developing a network of career counsellors at the secondary school level to help them increase their understanding of emerging STEM careers and the skills needed for these careers; and to support them in introducing STEM careers into the classrooms, complementing the integrated STE(A)M approach.
D4.1 - Repository of STEM jobs profiles
D4.2 - Guidelines on how to present STEM jobs in classrooms
D4.3 - Network of career advisers in STEM jobs
WP5 ensures that all the outputs of the STE(A)M IT project reach a wider audience than the partners and teachers involved in the project. STE(A)M IT’s dissemination strategy will include both online promotions and face-to-face presentations, supported by attractive dissemination materials and a sound exploitation and sustainability plan.
Task 5.1 - Website and dissemination plan
Task 5.2 – Presentation
Task 5.3 - Dissemination materials and campaigns
Task 5.4 - Exploitation and Sustainability plan
D5.1 - First integrated STE(A)M framework – Executive summary (Public, Oct 2022)
D5.2 - Exploitation and Sustainability plan
WP6 monitors the overall quality of the project and partner collaboration (quality assurance) and b), evaluates the effect of the outputs of the project, including, the STE(A)M framework, the project MOOCs, the stories of implementation of both the STE(A)M approaches and the professionals go back to school initiative (evaluation).
