Scientix Ambassadors - members of the Scientix Teachers' Committee – promote and popularize Scientix among preschool teachers, primary school teachers, and sciences teachers and mathematics in secondary education in Europe.

The exception is represented by Asian countries where STEM education starts at primary level and is done with specialized teachers. Ways to Attract the New Generation to STEM Education: 1. promoting and using active teaching methods based on exploration, investigation, hands-on experiments and the interdisciplinary approach of these tools; 2. Presenting and promoting STEM careers models ( see CERN, ESA, ROSA, NASA, or the European SPACE AWARENESS project http://www.space-awareness.org/en/careers ); 3. organizing events or campaigns to popularize, as well as attracting partners from different economic domains, such as the World Space Week (www.worldspaceweek.org/), which takes place between 4 and 10 October each year, the European Researchers Night, taking place on the last Saturday of September each year (https://www.noapteacercetatorilor.eu/) or SCIENTIX Campaign STEM Discovery Week , April 2018 (http://www.scientix.eu.events/campaigns/sdw18) and so on. I will show you how, following international trainings where I have participated, I have applied active teaching methods of STEM education both in the classroom and in extracurricular activities. In continuation, the trainings are marked with digits and the examples of activities performed with the students are marked with letters. The Need to Prioritize STEM Education

Students presented ppt, posters and / or drawings about the solar system or / and the outer space, they observed solar spots through the Galileoscope, and watched NASA and ESA films about satellites, outer space or about life and research on ISS (International Space Station) as well as on STEM career models, for example the career of Romanian astronaut Dumitru Dorin Prunariu ( Dumitru Prunariu – Wikipedia ).

It was a great experience in which students were able to develop their creativity and scholarly abilities, seeing "doing science" means something else, perhaps more beautiful, than solving difficult problems such as those of IOAA or IPhO. In addition, the contest provided us with an exchange of beneficial experience in which students learned one from each other, developing their interdisciplinary skills, which is welcomed because, in real life, events do not take place following a discipline or another but rather take place in a complex, transdisciplinary context. On the second edition, some of my students managed to build a functional robot and others managed to make animations, unusual things for them till then and even for the schools in our city. One of first prize was obtained by my students with the film Viewing Electrostatic Field Lines ( https://youtu.be/5I01NzUcToQ ). At the same time, the students met a number of academics and scientists, of whom we mention only Astronomer PhD. Magda Stavinschi, former Director of the Astronomical Institute of the Romanian Academy, Physicist PhD. Florin Buzatu, IFA Managing Director, and University Professors : PhD Radu Constantinescu, Vice-Rector of the University of Craiova, PhD. Mircea Rusu, Faculty of Physics, University of Bucharest, PhD. Florea Uliu, Faculty of Physics, University of Craiova.

In this interdisciplinary experiment, which requires knowledge of mathematics, physics, astronomy, geography and ICT, several classes of students took part. By measuring the shadow of the gnomon at equal time intervals, in the noon at the equinox, students were able to determine the meridian of the place and the angle required to calculate the circumference and the radius of the Earth, with a fairly good approximation. They compared their results with those obtained from other schools on the same meridian and once again they have convinced themselfs that the Earth has a spherical shape (approximately).

Here are some of the diplomas:

There were 455 matches from all over the world. The winning team spent a week at CERN to experiment with their proposal at proton synchrotron. I have formed and trained a team of students from Ionita Asan National College (my school), Buzesti Brothers National College and Carol National College in Craiova City.

In 2015 I was also a co-organizer in Craiova. In Bucharest, the student prepared by me took a mention at the national contest organized by the Faculty of Physics. Students were able to see many kinds of exciting experiments and robotics.

Also we watched the sun eclipse at my school only with eclipse glasses.

Many of them follow technical universities or medicine. I think I guided their first steps towards a STEM career. Even though not all students are able to excel at STEM disciplines, I think that the youngsters' orientation towards such careers depends only on the teacher's dedication and mastery. I am grateful for the international programs¹ for teachers and for the organizing agencies² because I had the opportunity to improve my knowledge and transfer my experience to my pupils . My hope is that one day, some of them will be the generation of the future on Mars. ¹ Global Hands-On Universe (GHOU), EU-HOU, HST ( CERN), GTTP, ODS, ISE, NUCLIO, ² CERN, ESA, NASA, ROSA, ESERO, European Schoolnet Instead of conclusions
