The popularization of science program “ŠUZA – from school to science and the academic community” is the new official popularization of science program of the University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER). The Program is intended for primary and secondary education students and their teachers. Through visits to schools, educational workshops for teachers and events at the Faculty their interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields is encouraged.

FER’s partners in this Program are the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.) and the student association eSTUDENT. The program is developed in cooperation and with the support of the Education and Teacher Training Agency (AZOO) and the Agency for Vocational Education and Training and Adult Education (ASOO).

FER Day at Science Festival

11th Science Festival took place at Zagreb's Technical Museum from 22nd to 27th of April. The topic of this year’s festival was “The Future”, but also other science subjects have been covered. The Faculty Day of FER was on April 26th where “ŠUZA” joined Faculty representatives who demonstrated humanoid robots. The Festival was held primarily for children and youth, thusly all demonstrations were adapted to be appealing, interactive and visitor oriented. Children could dance and walk with the robots or play a game of Tic-Tac-Toe with them. Visitors could also learn all about “ŠUZA” programme activities.

Take a look at some photographs below.
