Abstract

Many opportunities exist for young people if they engage themselves in entrepreneurship and/or the various domains of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). However, it is a common phenomenon in industrialized countries that the interest in pursuing a career in the STEM domains or taking the risk of becoming an entrepreneur is rather limited. Consequently, more young people need to become aware of the opportunities in entrepreneurship and STEM while being empowered with the required skills. This paper presents a series of workshops tackling various topics of entrepreneurship and STEM for inspiring young people towards engineering and technology. The workshop formats also focus on collaboration, which is an important 21 st century skill. Also the results of an evaluation are presented and discussed, which was performed when carrying out the workshops with several school classes.
