18 – 26 July Malta
The STEAM programme is open to all motivated STEM students and researchers interested in science communication. Teachers, science communication practitioners, science journalists, and established researchers will also find novel techniques within our content. The programme is comprehensive and no previous experience in communication is required to start the online course or attend the summer school.
STEAM Summer School 2020 will be divided into two parts: a multimedia online course and a highly practical, face-to-face 9-day programme.
The online course will focus on the background information while the Summer School will build on this knowledge through critical thinking and practical application. The 9-day intensive course in science communication integrates Arts into the classical STEM and includes interactive experiments and informal learning. The goals are to improve science awareness and develop informed opinions, increase student uptake of STEM careers for high-level jobs and enhance the transferable skills of current researchers.
We hope that by splitting the programme in this way we will achieve the following:
- Make our content more accessible
- Provide a stepping stone to STEAM Summer School
- Cater to different backgrounds
- Allow you to set your own pace
- Allow time to absorb the content
- Have more time for skills development
- More time with our instructors
- A unique experience tailored to you
