You are surely familiar with STEM Games 2020 novelties, such as the new location, Rovinj, and eSport Arena, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. In order to fully understand what awaits you as a competitor in one of the Arenas at the Games, we will present you people with whom you will spend a lot of time trying to solve tasks in the busy arenas, that are the mentors!
The mentors are young, enthusiastic and friendly experts from industry and academia who, with experience and knowledge gained through research work and participation in numerous specialist events, contribute to the Games on many levels. Games offer interdisciplinary tasks designed by our mentors, so the contribution of people with various backgrounds, skills and knowledge who will present real-life problems to the competitors is very important.
As usual, these problems are in practice most often unsolvable using a narrow scientific field, so this year too the STEM Games brought together mentors with knowledge from diverse fields such as thermodynamics, robotics, mechatronics, automation, computer vision, artificial intelligence, image analysis and processing, applied mathematics and modeling, experimental physics, genomics, biochemistry, biophysics and many others.
In addition to that, at the Games mentors will be available to give you a closer look and describe the problems they face today in the real world, and will answer any questions and concerns you may have. In this way, as a competitor at the Games you will be able to meet and closely cooperate with mentors who gained their experience at impressive world institutes and universities in Croatia, England, Germany, France, Spain, Czech Republic, Denmark, Italy, Hungary, Slovenia and USA.
Participating in the Games is your chance to move aside from the usual ex cathedra form of education, and experience first-hand cooperation with brilliant people from the profession and gain insight into what problems you will face when you are a young scientist yourself, and maybe a future mentor of the Games 😀
