The world today approaches enormous challenges, but also encourages great potentials. Industry 4.0, robotics, artificial intelligence and IOT technologies offer revolutionary steps in the field of production and at the same time create precarious employment conditions, further, industrial three-dimensional production (3D printing) and advances in circular economy programs try to provide answers to the depletion of natural resources, the climate crisis opens up space for the search for renewable energy sources. The European Union’s Green Deal policy, which is a roadmap for transforming the EU into a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy, aims for climate neutrality.
All of the above requires the transformation of the educational system and equipping the young generation with the necessary knowledge and skills, raising the awareness of students and inspiring young people. These goals, in turn, set new standards for education systems, and STEM education can make such a systemic impact.
