Across them all, students, teachers, families and people from different sides of the world will work side by side in crafting new things from scratch in the streets, museums and all the more locations, using scientific concepts acquired with our citizen science module.
Our group of partners includes expert in STEM higher education. We are a team of scientists, teachers, researchers, educators, marketing analysts., and we all have previously worked with local schools in formal and informal education activities. Together with them, we will hold the 6 courses in each country of our group.
HOW IT WILL WORK
For each discipline, we will present 7 to 9 core topics by explaining their practical applications and their impact on our everyday life and work. This will happen by mixing basic notions with hands-on experiments, games and self-reasoning sessions. Also, for each discipline, we will show which specific skill and competences you can learn with that subject and use in your future profession.
WHAT WE WILL CREATE
A multidisciplinary guide for teachers on how to best exploit STEM education, including a more formal section on extra-curricular activities at school and an informal one on how to work with science festivals, university organized lectures and web open accessible self-study materials
Formal and informal educational contents and methodologies to teach and learn science in an attractive way (learning by experiment, gaming, citizen science activities at schools)
Recommendations for the uptake of the best STEM learning practices by local, national and Europe-wide education systems
