The “International Dialogue on STEM” will focus in various panel discussions and working groups on early childhood education in the domains of STEM, computer science, the arts, and education for sustainable development.
“What Skills and Abilities Do Children Need for a Worthwhile Future, and What Contribution Can We Make?” This question will be addressed by the “International Dialogue on STEM”. The international conference will take place under the auspices of the German Commission for UNESCO.
It will focus on early childhood education (for children between the ages of three and around ten) in the domains of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), computer science, the arts, and education for sustainable development. Participants from all over the world – scientists, practitioners, and policy makers – will have the opportunity to jointly reflect on domain-specific methods of outcome-oriented early education, to identify common interfaces, and to define future potentials.
Besides the Siemens Foundation, as the main cooperation partner, implementation support will be provided by the Federal Foreign Office and the Robert Bosch Foundation.
