Drones overall will be more impactful than I think people recognize, in positive ways to help society. – Bill Gates
On the 25th of Jnauary, Emphasys Centre participated in the second transnational meeting of the Erasmus+ KA2 VET project: DRONES@STEAM: Fostering digital transformation in VET schools and creating new job prospects in the labour market, in Cergy, France.
Drone technology stands out as fun and practical equipment for the contemporary classrooms, experiments, and exploration. Drone technology is a fascinating way to introduce students to STEM related professions, equip them with relevant skills and thus cover the gaps reported in the labour market to meet the new job creation arising.
The DRONES@STEAM project aims to provide:
- STEAM skills that are not fully covered by the VET curricula and are currently needed in the labour market.
- Targeted digital competencies and the use of technologies leading to the 4.0 industry.
- Νew career orientations and opportunities in a variety of sectors of the labour market.
We would like to thank our coordinator University of Crete (GR), along with our other esteemed partners ECAM-EPMI (FR), Cyprus Computer Society (CY), Politeknika Txorierri (ES), NCSR “DEMOKRITOS” (GR) and Regional Directorate for Primary and Secondary Education of Attica (GR), for their excellent collaboration.
