The driving force of modern economies is innovation, that is, the use of knowledge to produce new products and services.
Innovation is not the privilege of superpowers like the US or China. Small countries, such as Israel, Switzerland, Taiwan, are internationally claiming prize. Surely, the most striking case is that of Israel, a technological superpower, and of Switzerland, which has a very aggressive policy of obtaining patents and copyrights. The achievements of small countries show that a Greek vision for innovation is not, in principle, impracticable.
The first major change, which is also the EU’s first priority, is the attempt to change the way STEM is introduced to education, either in its formal or informal form. Especially for our country it is imperative since the curriculum has significant deficiences.
- From memorization, to the experiential learning.
- From individuality, to the collective work of students.
- From rejection, to the effort towards solving a problem.
Welcome us to your school so that both students and teachers can learn about STEM, experience STEM programs, discover ways to introduce STEM into the learning process. In co-operation with the parents’ club we can jointly design educational programs appropriate for the age and experience of the students.
It is important to understand that in order for a group of students to construct a robotic arm, which will solve the problem of a challenge, the same group would first have to be taught the crucial chapter of Simple & Complex Machines at a younger age.
Our organization has developed training programs based on this very learning philosophy. From Preschool to High School, either one opts for Engineering or Coding. Depending on their age, every student will attend the intercisciplinary curriculum.
