Through this project a number of MCAST lectures have received training focusing on the methodology of interaction students, how to present VET careers, how to disseminate results and activities and how to carry out science events. Furthermore, MCAST will primarily be responsible for the development, piloting, testing and launching of the app. The app will be using the visual arts to encourage users to take up a career in the VET field. This will help raise awareness and interest in STEAM Employment among people with low levels of literacy, people not in education, employment and training (NEETs) and other socially disadvantaged people.

MCAST Team members include: Ing Christian Camilleri, Dr Ing Alex Rizzo, Mr Conrad Vassallo, Mr Mark Anthony Farrugia and Mr Eric Flask.
