Youth’s science and technology-related experiences outside of school as a source of influence on their attitudes towards science [BLE_STEM]


The purpose of BLE_STEM project was to gather information about the science and technology-related experiences in which children and youth participate outside of the school context. Due to the spectacular development of mobile technologies and wireless networks in recent years, new activity contexts have appeared to offer children and youth opportunities and resources to learn. These learning experiences are becoming more frequent and meaningful and they enable young people to acquire knowledge and develop skills of diverse nature. The focus of the project on everyday activities related to science and technology links to the current concern to promote students’ motivation and interest in these subjects and to improve their teaching and learning within the school context.
