Purpose & objective
The purpose is to introduce the Global STEM Classroom model to the participants; to share a summary of the formal evaluation of the programs and to provide specific recommendations for implementation. The participants will be provided with recommendations ready for forming global partnerships and implementing the programs in their schools
We will review all essential components of the Global STEM Classroom (L.K.Schelkin, 2009); We will discuss the specific examples of our collaboration with US, UK, France, Russia, Netherlands, Mexico, Ukraine in the last 5-6 years - what worked, what didn't and why. The participants will be actively engaged in this interactive session and participate in a discussion. There will be opportunity asking questions directly from the teachers (via videoconferencing) from all these countries (we will do our best considering time difference). The participants will be provided with recommendations ready for forming global partnerships and implementing the programs in their schools

Succeeding Globally Through International Education and Engagement: the U.S. Department of Education’s International Strategy for 2012-16
Project/problem-based experiential learning increases students’ interest and participation in STEM. Students, and especially girls, can be excited by science if they are exposed to hands-on experiments, working together in groups, and working on problems important to families and society (NSF, 2003, 2006; U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Research, 2007).
