CODESKILLS4ROBOTICS

Promoting Coding And Stem Skills Through Robotics: Supporting Primary Schools To Develop Inclusive Digital Strategies For All

Short Description
Programming and computational thinking skills are becoming ever more important in our society and working life: an increasingly digitalised economy has transformed the labour market and brought digital skills to the forefront of the educational scene. In response to this trend, the CODESKILLS4ROBOTICS project will seek to facilitate the development of programming and computational thinking skills among primary school students by producing a comprehensive set of tools designed for teachers, parents and policy-makers. Students will be introduced to coding through robotics, a channels which effectively initiates them to various STEM disciplines while promoting transversal employability skills such as problem solving, leadership and creativity. All project results and resources will be made available on the CODESKILLS4ROBOTICS interactive portal and mobile app.
The direct target group is primary school children from 9 to 12 years old who will participate in a coding programme to learn how to code. The indirect target group is primary school teachers whose profiles will be upgraded and strengthened through the professional development programme to acquire the essential digital and coding skills.
