The students from Omnia and Perho Culinary, Tourism and Business College and Viljandi Vocational Training Centre, Estonia, have been working on their business ideas online for a year with the help of teachers and mentors as a part of the SENSationalSTEM project. Last week, the students met their teammates for the first time in-person in a get-together event that was held in Pasila campus.

- The students are very motivated and talented. They have amazing business ideas and are very dedicated in developing these even further. The in-person event brought a new energy for us all, says SENSationalSTEM project coordinator Namrata Sethi.

Later the students also registered their companies on Junior Achievement Finland’s platform.

The SENSationalSTEM project aims to help activate students with special educational needs (SEN-students) through science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) based entrepreneurship.

The project focuses on training SEN-students in STEM-based entrepreneurship and to support and assist them in the business idea development process through counselling and mentoring.
