Project Summary:

FemSTEAM Mysteries is based on the values of gender equality and non-discrimination between men and women in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM), creativity and innovative entrepreneurship. Through the adoption of an innovative approach that integrates STEM and Arts, and combines Role-Model and Game-based methodology with a mystery story-telling digital game (escape room) that engages teenagers (age 12-15), FemSTEAM Mysteries aims to: (i) bring out the significant role of women in STEAM; (ii) fight stereotypes of students and teachers; (iii) inspire young girls through role-model game-based STEAM pedagogy to follow STEAM careers; (iv) enhance acquisition of key skills and competences for STEAM studies and careers of all students (boys and girls); (v) enhance teachers’ skills in dealing with gender equality in STEAM.
