In StarT students carry out interdisciplinary projects related to science, technology or mathematics, and teachers get support for the implementation of interdisciplinary and collaborative project-based learning. We share and award the most distinguished students' projects and teachers' best educational practices annually to spread innovations made in classrooms around the world.
