Abstract
For the past five years, Engineering students from Barcelona School of Civil Engineer in UPC BarcelonaTech have shown that educational intervention in first-year engineering programs can positively affect students’ awareness of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) concepts by introducing students to basics concepts and motivating them to follow next ones. At Terrassa School of Industrial, Aerospace and Audiovisual Engineering, also belonging to UPC BarcelonaTech, STEM concep...
