The International Centre for STEM Education (ICSE) is located at the University of Education in Freiburg, Germany and focuses on practice-related research and its transfer into practice. ICSE sustainably links stakeholders from research, practice, policy and industry, nationally as well as internationally through the ICSE consortium.
The ultimate aim of ICSE is to help improve STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education across Europe. That is, to give students insights into authentic features of STEM subjects and their connection to real-life contexts, to raise achievement levels in STEM subjects and to make science literacy accessible to all students, no matter their gender, their cultural or socioeconomic background. Thereby, ICSE intends to promote the interest of young people in STEM careers.
