ENHANCING STUDENT AND TEACHER SUCCESS THROUGH STEM EDUCATION

THE MEANING OF OUR PROJECT:


Teachers from  Bulgaria, Portugal, Romania, Austria, Finland and Slovakia have unified around the  aim of the present project  to identify successful strategies and techniques in the teaching process of science .In this project we will investigate opportunities to integrate and develop new learning approaches, methodologies, integrated classroom strategies in STEM education.

Early science for children is all about building their natural curiosity about the world and encouraging exploration. Discovering cause and effect, making guesses, observing, estimating and measuring are part of this exciting journey, so we have promoted STEM at our schools by constantly doing something new and reliable with our students in science classes. We understand how important the early years are to both parents and their children. This is a time of remarkable growth, when children are experiencing rapid development, learning new skills and progressing steadily towards physical, intellectual, and social-emotional milestones.

With our project we have taught our students about the importance of science-citizen interaction. Throughout this project we were particularly encouraged by our students' enthusiasm for research, science and experiments but also history and geography. We  encouraged the exploration and interpretation of natural phenomena, and inspired them to continue their studies in science disciplines. We made online meetings and practical activities - experiments, studies. During the LTTA the students and teachers   developed  their  technological skills through  workshops of programming and robotics, as well as the development of science in the classroom by studying innovative approaches and good practices. We presented  online and at the Erasmus+ project  LTTA
27 workshops. Some of them were included in our online booklet   "A few ideas for science education in primary level".
Together with the students we created stories in English language as fairy tales for different science areas. We made experiments and collected all stories  in an e-book translated in 6 languages, as well as their dramatization published on our You Tube project channel.
The eTwinning projects  with the same name were  part of our Erasmus+ project one per each year of the Erasmus+ project time.
