STEM Alliance launches brand new “Professionals Go Back To School” Scheme (PGB2S)

Tuesday, March 7, 2017

The STEM Alliance has launched its brand new “Professionals Go Back To School” Scheme (PGB2S), the STEM Alliance programme to engage company professionals - technicians, engineers, researchers, employment managers, etc. - to visit schools and participate in collaborative activities for a short session of one hour to half a day or more.

The aim of "STEM Professionals Go Back To Schools" is to raise pupils' and teachers' awareness about STEM careers in order to promote STEM jobs.

The initiative was launched on March 6 and will run until the end of this school year with a peak of activities around the annual STEM Discovery Week, from  April 24 to 30.

The STEM Alliance provides an ecosystem to support, on one side, the school to prepare and organise the event and the visit, and on the other side the STEM professionals to make sure the contribution during the visit in the school is meaningful.

  1. The PGB2S booklet (coming soon) will provide all the necessary tips for preparing a successful visit, and contains also suggestions of pedagogical activities to propose for the visit.
  2. The unique PGB2S Tool allows schools and companies to get in touch with one other. It functions as a database where to map new and existing collaborative relationships between schools and companies. Whether you do not know where to find a STEM professional or you already have connections with schools or STEM companies' professionals, the PGB2S Tool is the place to go! Register now here.
  3. Finally, STEM Alliance provides Communication Material to promote the PGB2S to companies, teachers, students and schools.

The scheme is an initiative of the STEM Alliance jointly coordinated by European Schoolnet and CSR Europe and supported by 13 major industries and network of companies in Europe.

For more information, you can check the PGB2S Informative Brochure for teachers and for professionals.
