Results during the project and on its completion
The expected results are both in the form of materials that can be seen / read by others on paper and digital forms and in skills acquired by all participants (students, teachers and local community).
The activities will be developed by all partner schools. All students’ and teachers’ projects / products will be digital or printed on paper and will be uploaded on the project web site.
We will also have intangible results, such as competences and soft skills acquired by the target groups (students, teachers, institutions overall).
The learning outcomes achieved during the project:
- Interchange of experience and good practices,
- Develop the knowledge on possible teaching methods that can be used in working with high school students,
- Raising perception in the field of STEM teaching of youth,
- Building and strengthening partnerships between the institutions participating in the project,
- Promoting the idea of partnership by providing information about the project and its results,
- Access to developed methods (with links to materials) on the partners’ websites and free websites across the EU ;
- Identify some of the factors that make buildings earthquake-proof, including cross bracing, large “footprints” and tapered geometry,
- boosted motivation to study through the application of non-formal teaching methods, based on empirical research, on training on the job and on the field training, as well as on experiences of virtual mobility thanks to the high-tech learning environments and physical mobility
- Compare a model structure with what it represents.
The results achieved after the project:
- Exploring the possibilities of expanding the scope of use of methods for other training than STEM;
- Another joint activities for new and better methods of education,
- Using methods developed in the daily practice of organizations taking part in the project,
- The possibility of further product development by adapting it to higher levels of learning;
- Inspire others by demonstrating good practice and developed recommendations,
- Improving the quality of teaching science and mathematics in the partner organizations,
- Developing partnerships with organizations around the world.
The deliverables will be the following products:
- Collection of information about the needs of students between 15 and 18 years in the area of science and mathematics learning by conducting a survey (STEM topics which will show partner schools and also represent the national approach in this field);
- LOGO of project – the first international contest will be focused on development of a logo for the project;
- a Website built collaboratively by students of all partner schools( The FINAL product of the whole project will be a web site containing all materials produced by students and teachers);
- Creating a complete tools using the best solutions in the field of teaching science and mathematics – science and mathematics teaching techniques using computer,
- The creation of interactive materials in the form of spectra periodic table used to learn science (physics and chemistry) and placing them on e-learning platform,
- catalogue “10 actions to save energy”
- creating posters about promoting the dosimeter and a brochure – how to use it;
- making the solar oven and the wind turbine in a way to save energy in the schools;
- creation of mini weather station and public presentation of the same;
- learning more about weather through a process similar to the one that professional meteorologists use;
- making simulations, videos and demonstrations related to radioactivity, leading to research the various types and doses of radiation;
- GoLab lesson scenarios;
- building an inexpensive detector of ionizing radiation – an ion chamber;
- Model an earthquake-proof structure using simple materials;
- STEM Youtube channel and facebook profile;
- Visits from experts in the fields of science and engineering;
- Weather Station
