Call for presentations for the LUMAT 2020 symposium

LUMA Centre Finland kindly invites current and prospective researchers and teachers from all around the world to submit their abstracts for oral and poster presentations to the LUMAT 2020 symposium held virtually on 3-5.6.2020. The symposium is organized by LUMAT Science Research Forum by LUMA Centre Finland.

The theme of the symposium is Promoting STEAM in education, in which S stands for science, T for technology, E for engineering, A for all subjects in this case, and M for maths. To address the challenges of the 21st century skills, there is a need to educate citizens capable of STEAM, and teachers who can support students in their learning towards STEAM capable citizens. We need not only students who understand basic science and mathematics, but also understanding how things work, and this is where we need also technology and engineering education. To really address the 21st century challenges, interdisciplinary approaches are crucial, and therefore also also other subjects, such as art,  should be acknowledged and promoted. 

The LUMAT symposium is free of charge.
