The EU project PARADIGM: Be A Digital Scientific chanGeMaker, has reached a successful end and its final meeting took place in Aveiro, PT between the 5th and 6th of September 2023.
The PARADIGM project aims to raise environmental awareness and active engagement through the development of innovative STEM-based curricula, which have been developed for teaching staff and it is freely accessible here: https://e-trainingcentre.gr/enrol/index.php?id=173
Along with the e-learning course, 15 different learning scenarios, cover different environmental topics, such as air pollution, and water pollution, and a DIY kit are available to assist in the active engagement of the students with the teachers, allowing them to measure different environmental parameters, such as the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere, temperature, humidity, etc. All the scenarios together with additional resources can be found here: https://repository.paradigmproject.eu/
During the project’s lifetime, each partner has delivered the DIY kit to different schools that have shown interest in the project results and willingness to exploit them. In the case of Cyprus, apart from Emphasys Centre premises, the DIY kit is available at the following schools:
- VET School Avgorou
- VET School Nicosia
- Lyceum Kykkos Nicosia
- Lyceum Livadia Larnaca
