The Academy has been part of 3 Erasmus+ research projects during the last 6 years:
Girls into Global STEM (GiGS):
A project linking 9 partner schools, universities and research groups from UK, Poland, Sweden and Cyprus to explore how the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals, digital technology and project-based learning can inspire more girls to enter STEM careers. The project includes student-created experiments, initial teacher training material and a research database.
