About STEM IC
The Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Innovation Camp is an initiative developed through a partnership between Nokia and JA Worldwide.
The STEM Innovation Camp helps raise awareness amongst secondary school students aged 15-18, of STEM related issues, showcases excellent role models for the industry from Nokia and leads the way to showing that skills-based CSR programs have a vital role to play in the future of education and aligning business needs with curriculums.
The events focus on fostering young people’s problemsolving and innovation skills. Students are given a specific challenge to solve within a limited period of time. The link between business and education helps students to develop skills that are relevant to the workplace and allows them to apply their academic learning in real-life.
5 JA organizations from Finland, Israel, Spain and United States (Chicago and New Jersey) are organizing Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Innovation Camps during April and May. The national winners will participate at the Global On-Line Finals on June 21, 2017.
