There are two challenges that face the STEM subjects at school in Russia, and Kazakhstan. These include the low interest to STEM subjects at school, as a result the average grade in STEM subjects is very low; not all places in STEM programs is filled at university level. This STEM Project aimed to address these challenges, to meet the needs of knowledge economy in high quality STEM specialists in Russia and Kazakhstan, by increasing the number of young people choosing the STEM career routes.

This STEM Project Handbook represents STEM National STEM policies and best practices in the EU and Partner countries to promote students’ interest to STEM subjects by introducing an integrated approach to Master teacher training program. This Handbook details methods, which support the set-up of STEM centers at each university which would provide training and methodical resources for a specific region and help organizing extra- curricular activities at high schools ( by providing instructions how to do it and ambassadors to implement it).

This STEM Project Handbook aligns with the enhancement quality of STEM Teacher training in line with Bologna provisions and needs of a STEM knowledge economy by raising awareness to a wider public of STEM activities.
