The important thing is to never stop questioning.
The educational program “STEM in English (Advanced)”, designed for children aged 9-11 years, offers students the chance to get inspired and build original robotic models, to experiment, to develop their critical thinking and problem-solving abilities but above all to have fun!
Using the LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 training package, children work on the construction of a robotic model that interacts with the real world in real time! Each construction follows a “code” that is the product of the students’ computational thinking and is realized in the digital environments of LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 and MIT Scratch.
Working collaboratively, students are involved in exploratory and experimental projects that help them conquer learning, scientific knowledge as well as language skills through questioning, searching for patterns, selecting strategies and drawing conclusions.
Finally, the educational background provided by the “STEM in English (Advanced)” program is particularly useful for all children who want to participate in the annual Pan-Hellenic Educational Robotics Competition
for Primary School students, which is the forerunner of the World Olympiad of the WRO.
