Researchers in the United States and Finland are teaming up on a set of projects aimed at improving STEM education at the K-12 and college levels.

The partnership, announced last week by the National Science Foundation, seeks to explore and develop some of the best ideas from researchers in both countries, according to a press release.

Together, the projects represent a total of $4 million in grant awards from the American and Finnish governments.

One project seeks to expand and improve STEM teaching and learning through the use of mobile video technology.

Another is targeting the growing field of game-based learning in the science, technology, engineering, and math disciplines.
