The interactive educational centres will operate in ten Lithuanian towns, allowing students to explore some of the developments in technology and scientific research and conduct their own experiments. The facilities will also welcome members of the public.

Each of the STEAM - an acronym standing for science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics - centres will house four laboratories dedicated to biology and chemistry, physics and engineering, robotics and IT, and a lab customized to the needs of a particular town.

The Ministry of Education and Science is planning to spend almost €6 million on the project, most of it to come from the European Union's structural funds.
