In Argentina, PADF is supporting Fundación Ciencia Joven, which has seen great success with its STEM Academy pilot program in Chile. The Argentinian STEM Academy program prioritizes students’ ability to use science to explain complex concepts, understanding scientific methods, and appreciating STEM as a viable career option. Due to COVID-19 school closures, Fundación Ciencia Joven has focused on transitioning their STEM Academies to a virtual setting, which has successfully allowed them to expand the project to Uruguay and Paraguay.
