The Scientix project primarily addresses teachers in STEM domains (STEM science, technology, engineering and math) in order to support and promote their work through an online platform. This platform was created for the cooperation and exchange of ideas and experiences between education professionals from Europe and worldwide. In parallel, the Scientix network brought together a large number of ministries of education, in order to have an impact on the creation of educational policies and the transformation of education in accordance with the general development of the European society.
The Role of CPN
Since 2017, CPN has been the National Contact Point of the Scientix project for Serbia. Its second term began in September 2020 and will last until December 2022. CPN mainly serves as a meeting point of STEM professionals and practitioners by providing them with the opportunity and support for professional development. The aim of these activities is to foster both formal and non-formal STEM practices, and to link local initiatives with activities at the national and European level. In addition, the Center is also responsible for the cooperation with the competent ministry in order to improve the position and perspectives of STEM within schooling system. Together with 30 elected ambassadors - teachers from Serbia, CPN will organise workshops, presentations and conferences with the focus on new pedagogical approaches and resources that can be useful for teachers in their work.
