To secure a bright future for Finland, more students who are interested in mathematics, science and technology (STEM) subjects are needed. To make this possible, training motivated and talented teachers, and improving education research, play a key role. This special issue of LUMAT was conceived as an overview of our national STEM teacher training, and it provides food for thought for future development.
