💯 Emphasys Centre participated in the C1 Staff Training of the Erasmus+ KA2 Project PlAn For Green OppoRtunities Be A Digital scIentific chanGeMaker (PARADIGM), in Patras (Greece) between the 29th of November – 1st of December 2022.
🍃The PARADIGM project aims to raise environmental awareness and active engagement through the development of innovative STEM-based curricula. The consortium is developing an e-learning course, which teaching staff will be able to freely access and learn about environmental issues. 📖📖Together with the e-learning course, 15 different learning scenarios, cover different environmental topics, such as air pollution, and water pollution. A DIY kit will assist in the active engagement of the students with the teachers, as they will be able to measure different environmental parameters, such as the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere, temperature, humidity, etc.
👉During the training, the trainers had the opportunity to train and receive feedback on the learning course, as well as the learning scenarios. Additionally, one of the three days of the training was fully dedicated to the training of the DIY kit. The participants of the C1 activity went through intense training on how to use the different components (sensors and the Arduino microcontroller), as well as how to upload the measurements on the IoT-STEM Based Environmental Observatories.
🙏 A big thank you to our host Hellenic Open University – HOU (GR) for their amazing organisation, the coordinator of the project, TXORIERRI (ES) and of course all partners that participated, IDEC (GR) and AE José Estêvão (PT) for their excellent collaboration.
