What is the STEAM education?
STEAM education is the name given to an education model that focuses on science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics. The STEAM initiative itself was originally developed by Georgette Yakman and emerged from the previous STEM model, which broadly covers the same topics but excludes the arts from its definition.
We want to promote STEAM vocations in girls
Its mission is to promote specific initiatives that contribute to shaping an education and training system that eliminates gender stereotypes associated with certain vocations and professions, that promotes female empowerment in STEAM disciplines from early stages of education and contributes to eliminating the gender gap. It is making headway thanks to the access of our young women to these disciplines, as is occurring at an international level.
