Idea for research
Idea for research
We would like to explore the provision and availability of STEM/STEAM Education in primary schools for the regions we work in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) and Latin America. STEM/STEAM skills are increasingly important for younger generations as the world of work continues to shift and change to a more globalised and technology-centric society. For the countries that we work in, we want to ensure that quality STEM/STEAM education is accessible and prepares disadvantaged children for the future world of work.

We have been thinking about this for a while and to help you understand the direction we'd like to take and our interests here are some guiding questions we'd like to think about:
- what are the global standards for STEM/STEAM education? Who adopts them?
- what are the programmes/initiatives of private/public sectors?
- what are the governments providing or implementing?
- what are the national standards for STEM/STEAM if any?
Impact of idea
This research will be foundational for the STEAM initiatives we are developing globally. Already we have launched STEAM programmes in Latin America and in 2022, we are due to expand to Lebanon and South Africa. We intend this piece of work to inform the quality and development of our STEAM programmes and to ensure it is delivered according to local and global standards for STEM/STEAM education.
