  • Experimento implemented since 2013, mostly in primary schools and through extracurricular activities
  • Teacher training opportunities in the Piura, Gran Lima, and Urubamba valley regions in addition to the southern part of Peru
  • Evolved into the program “Ciencias para todos – Experimento”
  • Emphasis on implementing creative, cultural, and artistic elements into STEM education
  • Training for about 1,170 educators
  • Around 97,000* children reached

* The number assumes that every instructed kindergarten or elementary school teacher shares the knowledge 5 times with one group or class, and a subject teacher shares it 5 times with two classes.

»Experimento nurtures the personal initiative. Teachers don’t dictate - they guide, encourage, and inspire.«

Landes­spezifische Adaptionen

  • Ciencia para todos – ExperimentoInstituto APOYO adapted Experimento for primary schools to meet the specifications of the national curriculum, adding its own content to create an expanded version of the program: “Ciencias para todos – Experimento.” The educational resources are available for download in the Centro de Recursos Educativos Abiertos (CREA) of Siemens Stiftung.
  • STEAM: Implementing creative, cultural, and artistic elementsUniversidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia has introduced STEM education as a continuing education program for teachers and has offered a certification program since 2018. In addition, the university provides creative, extracurricular STEM workshops for students from kindergarten through middle school on a wide range of subjects. Their program “Diviértete y aprende” (“Have fun and learn”) is special for creating a deliberate link between science and technology (Experimento) content and creative, cultural, and artistic aspects – building bridges to other disciplines in a way that shows how holistic and imaginative science and technology can be.
