STEM Education offers a unique opportunity for European educators, funded by Erasmus, to participate in an intensive seminar on the STEM Educational method, while visiting the beautiful country of Greece.
STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
The tutor’s role in this program is to motivate the children to explore and search for knowledge through experimenting and observing, knowledge that would otherwise be offered to them in a much later age. Consulting them rather than physically intervening, the tutor participates in an open discussion that leads to extremely valuable conclusions.
Working on hands-on activities that include simple and more complicated constructions, the participants can get accustomed to all Simple Machines (gears, pulleys, wheels and axles, levers) and practice the art of engineering in actual problem solving situations.
Furthermore, visiting Greece is a first class privilege to witness the magnificent cultural heritage of the country and enjoy the beautiful landscape.
