Science Engagement to Empower Disadvantaged adoleScents

Project description

Lending adolescents a helping hand through science

Education can open the door to vast opportunities and help with employability, social integration and well-being. Adolescents, especially those from deprived communities, seem to be a harder group to reach and engage in research and health education programmes when compared to adults or younger children. They also tend to have reduced access to science education and a general lack of interest in the field. The EU-funded SEEDS project aims to engage adolescents from disadvantaged neighbourhoods in designing interventions that will increase their interest in scientific methodologies and in science, technology, engineering, mathematics education by raising the health understanding. The project also seeks to empower these individuals by boosting their critical thinking capabilities.
