FabConnectHer: Empowering girls & women in STEAM (science, technology,engineering, arts and math)!  This Erasmus+ project unites European partners to bridge the gender gap. Exciting plans include innovative education, mentorship, and digital platforms. Viva Lab Porto took part at the recent transnational meeting in the Netherlands to set the stage for the project with transformative experiences. Stay tuned to see what we do with engaging learning pathways, mentorship programs, and interactive events!  

The first transnational meeting

The project’s first transnational meeting was held in Leeuwarden on November  30th and December 1st, 2023. This event set the stage for effective collaboration and strategy development among partners. The meeting was characterized by enthusiastic exchanges, with partners sharing insights and strategies to foster women’s participation in STEAM. A key feature of the event was the tour of D’Lab, offering a glimpse into the creative and technological environments that FabConnectHer aims to use throughout Europe. The discussions and activities over these two days laid the groundwork for what promises to be a transformative and impactful project. 

Looking ahead: what to expect from the FabConnectHer Project

The FabConnectHer project will develop a range of impactful materials. As the project progresses, expect engaging learning pathways designed specifically to empower girls and women in STEAM fields and comprehensive mentorship programs. Additionally, the project will develop a digital platform, fostering a community for continuous learning and knowledge exchange. Participants can look forward to interactive workshops, transnational collaboration events, and innovative challenges that will not only enhance their learning experience but also actively contribute to reducing the gender gap in STEAM. Keep an eye out for these exciting developments as FabConnectHer continues to champion female participation and success in STEAM education and careers.
