Summary

STEM Brasil is different. It inspires, engages and support public school science and math teachers through training sessions of 21st Century Skills, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Math subject areas. Over 4,500 trained teachers impacted more than 570,000 students, with world-wide quality STEM classes. The teacher plays a facilitator role and proposes project-based learning exercises, where students collaborate on projects and work together to solve problems connected to Real-World-Challenges.

Challenge

The need for STEM Brasil is critical. Science Competencies for Tomorrow's World reports that more than 61% of 15-year-old students tested in Brazil performed at or below the lowest level on the science assessment (PISA, 2006). Indeed, Brazil is ranked in the bottom 10% of the nations participating in PISA. The implications for Brazil's economy and society are profound; low-income students are simply not gaining the competencies required to pass college entrance and therefore, succeed in life.

Solution

In addition to strengthening academic skills, STEM Brasil will enable students to gain essential employability skills that companies today demand. The expected benefits are: Increase the capacity of students to enter and succeed in higher education, particularly in math and science; Enable students to become immediately employable in technical fields so they can support themselves during and after their post-secondary studies; Provide hands-on experience with the instruments, equipment.

Long-Term Impact

Evidence central to careers in science, technology, and math; Build effective work, life, and social skills, the trademark of any holistic learning initiative; Provide career mentoring and professional networking opportunities; and Empower the student by empowering the teacher with intensive in-person training and new pedagogical techniques.
