Today’s world is undergoing many changes in technology, economy, and environment. We also talk about Industry 4.0. Thus countries, regions and industry sectors are on the cusp of radical changes. New innovations and globalization offer many challenges. Consequently, STEM skills are a substantial education foundation for employability and the economic development. Scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM. STEM education helps to bridge skills gaps already in a very early stage and gives orientation in for the further individual educational path. The goal is to encourage the current generation, as well as future generations of students, to understand and embrace the benefits of technology that affects them every day of their lives and encourage them for a technical and engineering career.
