Reasons for GirlsTech project
The Idea for the GirlsTech project was mentioned during the first INNOTECS conference in 2015. Participants at the conference wondered why there was a difference in the amount of girls participating in STEM-studies in VET.
- Question behind: how to explain sometimes a large participation on the STEM-labour market but low in VET STEM programs
Because there is so much variety in the amount of girls participating in STEM in Europe, the applicating projectpartner was looking for partners in the INNOTECS network that matched a High- medium or low score.
