Science Education of young generations, STEM, STEAM, Citizen Science and other activities are increasingly considered relevant globally, which is where the GYA should come in as a voice of young scientists, and contribute to these efforts by leading activities and providing role models. To be a role model in science outreach and science education, the aim of this working group is not only to engage young people in science through various activities, science cafes and science festivals, but also to create an online platform to coordinate such efforts by uploading/downloading activity materials, share documents and experiences, get feedback and even compile data towards “measuring excellence in science engagement activities”.
In July 2020, the GYA working group on the Expedition Mundus science game was integrated into this group, and the Mundus science game activities by GYA members now continue from within this group.
The group also aims to enlarge its fields of activity by generating additional funds through various fundraising initiatives, including the European Union’s Horizon 2020 funding stream.
For GYA members and alumni only: connect to the group, collaborate and discuss with other members on the GYA-internal Agora platform here.

The members of this GYA working group routinely carry out various science education activites in their home countries. They are currently working on the following activities:
In 2022/23, the group will concentrate on writing a number of articles on Digital Education; and will run a project for “Girls in Science”.
