LAUNCH OF THE SCI – TECH PROGRAM
The new generation is facing the challenges of the energy industry and options in the STEM domains
JA Cyprus and ExxonMobil Cyprus are pleased to announce the launch of the new Sci-Tech Challenge program. The program is a collaboration between JA Europe and ExxonMobil that spans 10 years with the participation of approximately 60,000 students from Europe.
The aims of the program are to inspire students to take Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) courses at the tertiary level and to enable them to understand the wide variety of careers they can pursue through STEM education while leveraging and their talents. It is a fact that the number of students studying these issues is decreasing both internationally and in Cyprus, while the projected number of jobs in the sector is increasing.
The program is implemented this year for the first time in Cyprus in 5 schools, bringing students face to face with the real challenges facing the world and the energy industry. The ExxonMobil volunteer mentors play a key role in the program, as through online classroom visits they serve as role models for a career in the STEM sector while introducing students to key energy issues.
Then, student teams from the schools participating in the program will take part in the National Sci-Tech Challenge, while the winning team will represent Cyprus in the Pan-European Sci-Tech Competition to be held in May 2021.
