STEAM-H – Extensive participation of teachers in the second Multiplier Event in Spain

 

On March 24th was held in Valencia (Spain) the II Multiplier Event of the STEAM-H Project. It took place within an important national conference for teachers of the educational system: The VI Conference PR3D 2022: “VI Conference on Programming, Robotics and 3D Printing. Robotics, also in Feminine”

Nearly 200 teachers participated in the different programmed activities.

 

 

The STEAM-H project had an outstanding presence within this event held in a hybrid mode, with face-to-face communications and an online program, as well as practical workshops.

Within this program, Bylinedu Association and the school La Nostra Escola Comarcal, the Spanish partners of the STEAM-H project, organized the following activities, linked to the II multiplier event of this project:

  1. Stand: An exhibition of the results of the STEAM-H project. Our stand received numerous visits from teachers who reported with great interest and highly valued the quality of the guides, the repository of STEAM resources and the training program for Primary schools teachers, available in different languages.
  2. Comunication: “The importance of STEAM-H projects in Primary Education”. Empar Bou (La Nostra Escola Comarcal) and Celia Ruíz (Bylinedu Association) explained to the audience the details and provisional results of the STEAM-H project, whose final versions will soon be available on the project website.

 

Face-to-face workshop: “STEAM activities for “Dummies” teachers, taught by Empar Bou (La Nostra Escola Comarcal) and Celia Ruíz (Bylinedu Association). In this workshop, low-tech and high-tech activities were carried out. These activities arer included in the STEAM-H Manual, a guide in 5 steps to implement STEAM activities with Primary students:

– Start modeling in 3D with Tinkercad.

-Introduction to programming with Bluebots robots.

-Simple electric circuits with Play-Doh.

It was not necessary for the teachers attending the workshop to be experts or to have previous experience with science and technology, since the selected STEAM activities allowed the teachers to discover that they were capable of experimenting with them and integrating them without difficulty in different areas of knowledge that are involved or not related to science.

 

 

Complementing the STEAM-H Multiplier Event, Bylinedu and La Nostra Escola Comarcal participated in other moments of the Conference:

-Communication: “Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), in Inclusive Programming and Robotics”. Loli Iborra Sales (Bylinedu Association).

-Round table: “Robotics, what for? And for whom?” which included the participation of Empar Bou (La Nostra Escola Comarcal).

-Workshop: “SDG for Inclusion with Micro Bit” with the participation of Bernat Llopis and Loli Iborra (Bylinedu Association).

STEAM-H – First Multiplier Event in Germany

The first Multiplier Event took place in Munich (Germany) on 11 June 2021. The primary school Lehrer-Wirth-Straße, as leading partner, organised the Multiplier Event with the collaboration of FabLab München e.V.

The aim of the event was to present the Erasmus+ project STEAM-H to interested people from the fields of school/education as well as science, technology and art. 

The participants of the event consisted of teachers and educators from different schools in Munich and people who are professionally active in different technical, scientific and artistic fields and interested in a cooperation between schools and companies.

 

During the first part of the event, the Erasmus project “STEAM-H” was presented by the leading partner focusing on the first project results (IO1- STEAM-H Competence Map and IO2- STEAM-H OER).

The theoretical presentation of the project was followed by a practical part, which gave insight into the practical implementation of STEAM activities in primary school lessons. It allowed the participants to try out some of these STEAM activities and provided time for a lively exchange between speakers and participants.

 

All the participants were very excited to discover how STEAM activities can be integrated into primary school lessons. Moreover, the chance to try things out for oneself and the many practical examples of lessons were also seen as very beneficial.
