The Visegrad Raw Materials Ambassadors at Schools project is an innovative program that aims to make science education and careers in the raw materials-related (RM) field of science attractive for young people. RM Ambassadors (experts in some RM-related issues and teachers) will offer active learning opportunities to schools by involving students in experiments with RM-related hands-on educational kits, excursions to companies, and science communication activities. Some students will become Young RM Ambassadors (science communicators) and create dissemination products on issues related to RM in their native language.
In addition, teachers will be trained to become RM Ambassadors themselves in the future at school, and selected groups of students will be trained on activities suitable to be performed at Public Events together with RM Ambassadors. All the dissemination materials and the best communication materials realised by pupils will be openly accessible online at the project website and so shared with a wide public.
Visegrad Raw Materials Ambassadors at Schools proposal aims to strengthen the motivation of students to deal with RM related STEM subjects and to choose a professional path in these fields to ensure the future of these subjects in Europe: This will be obtained by offering them interesting and motivating hands-on- experiments which go further than usual school equipment and by giving pupils the chance to become active players in the outreach action.
