OLCMS stands for Open Learning Content Management System. It is the main goal of the Stem4Youth project that has received funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme under grant agreement no. 710577. The purpose of the project is to promote education of STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) by offering various scientific challenges. By challenges we mean: do-it-yourself experiments, remote experiments, interactive gaming presentations, students-engaging lessons.
Our target is to reach young people who have not been decided yet their future carrer. Studies on future job market predict that in the next ten years there will be 8.2 million new STEM jobs in the EU. This demand should be met by properly educated people.
