🤔 The ever-increasing use of technology 💻 in all aspects of modern life has made the youth to be dependent on online activities while interest in offline learning activities is lost.
👩🏫 Teaching STEM usually involves hands-on work either from the educator’s side while showcasing experiments, or from the student’s side while experimenting 🧪. With the global pandemic forcing distance learning, subjects of STEM lost the hands-on or experiential teaching side, and are currently losing students’ participation and engagement, especially at young ages, when children require additional activity and stimulation.
💯 To address this issue, Emphasys Centre participated in the Kick-off meeting for the Erasmus+ KA2 SCHOOL – SCRAPY: Strengthening educator’s competencies for distance STEM learning through physical computing & DIY electronics project.
👊 The project SCRAPY has as primary objective to strengthen 💪 educators’ competencies for distance STEM learning by offering a state-of-the-art solution of custom-made hardware and software in order to teach young students physical computing, programming and DIY electronics development.
👉 During the meeting, the outline of the project was addressed, all Project Results were presented and analysed, as well as the dissemination strategy and Quality Assurance of the project.
