TPM3 of the RETROSTEM project!

By February 3, 2020No Comments

Emphasys Centre participated in the 3rd meeting and LTTA (Learning, Teaching & Training Activity) of the Erasmus+ KA2 Project RETROSTEM, organized in Athens (Greece), on the 7th -10th of January 2020.

The RETROSTEM project has a primary objective to produce approaches and tools to help those working with children reach out to them with a view for helping them engage with programming and develop STEM-related skills. It aims to achieve this not by increasing screen time but by encouraging hands-on play through the creation of games playable on a retro design console in combination with electronic gadgets relating to STEM subjects.

A big thank you to the hosting organization Ellinogermaniki Agogi (GR), the coordinator of the project Civic (UK), and the rest of the consortium CCS Digital Education – EU Funded Projects (IE), the Colegiul Național Pedagogic „Mircea Scarlat” Alexandria (RO) and Politechnika Lodzka (PL) for the great cooperation.
