STEM optional course
In cooperation with Eesti Energia and Eastman Specialties, we offer a STEM optional course at Jõhvi State Gymnasium. In 2018, this optional course took place for the third year in a row, and it is gaining popularity among pupils year after year. Different lectures and excursions both to VKG Energia and the Ojamaa mine took place within the frame of the course. We are making a contribution to this project because we want to show young people that in their homeland there are also some smart companies where people interested in engineering can accomplish some serious and important deeds. In 2018, 16 pupils took part in the STEM programme.
The STEM course is a course consisting of four elements (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), which have been integrated into a uniform and vital subject that links natural and exact sciences with vital studies and provides pupils with their first experience in the field they are interested in.
