STE(A)M EmbRaCe aims to promote inclusion by engaging and inspiring students from different backgrounds. Students work on real-world STE(A)M problems, which will help develop their cultural empathy, resilience, and creative thinking. The idea is to create digital content which will be ready to be used by teachers in any classroom setting. More specifically, the project will allow the development of a 7-week course and teacher training on how to use the developed material with students.

Learning Scenarios

INTRODUCTION TO PROGRAMMING

This course is designed to provide students with a comprehensive introduction to programming using Python.

What’s next for this project?

Thanks to the Scientix STE(A)M Partnership Education Resilience in Europe support STE(A)M EmbRaCe plans to:

→ create materials and activities that will be part of the future course which can be easily integrated in the school curriculum of any country;

→ organize three workshops for teachers, students, and parents;

→ test the created STE(A)M activities in 3 classes;

→ translate the produced materials into English and disseminate them to teachers across Europe.

Thanks to STE(A)M EmbRaCe, teachers will have access to innovative resources for inclusive STE(A)M education, while students will get a chance to improve their STE(A)M key competences.

About the Scientix STE(A)M Partnership Education Resilience in Europe

The Education resilience in Europe initiative, supported by the Scientix STE(A)M Partnerships and funded by Cisco, aims to identify, and support projects which address the challenges encountered while integrating students from different cultural and language backgrounds. The selected projects will develop best practices and provide tools for a smoother integration of students, and, finally, share the results with interested stakeholders.

Scientix is the community for science education in Europe and its STE(A)M Partnerships promote collaboration between Ministries of Education, schools, teachers, and other stakeholders to develop research and testing initiatives for new approaches for creative and innovative STEM teaching and learning opportunities.
