I&R - European Industrial Technology and Robotics
New approches for creative learning in STEM education.
European industry spans several sectors that contribute to high economic activities and generate mass employment in different fields: automotive, aerospace, defence, chemicals, biotechnology, food. European educational institutions face the challenge of supplying skilled employees to sustain it, especially in this period of economic crisis. Robotics is fast becoming an integral part of the school curriculum with its ability to integrate a broad range of subjects, most notably Computing, Technology, Science and Maths.
Key Learning Areas.
It encourages students to think creatively, analyse situations and apply critical thinking and problem-solving skills to real-world problems. The specific topic concerning "Industry and Robotics" allows the students to discover and work on the many facets offered by the subject and will be a starting point for our youth to develop both their skills and a personal maturity process.
No information for researchers is available at this moment.
The project aims at developing five main areas:
- The development of the European industrial world and the job possibilities offered at home and abroad, with comparison of the social development process of the different industrialised communities in Europe
- Industry: study of the positive and negative consequences on society and environment.
- Robotics: the role of robots in industry and other fields of human life, for example: art, medicine.
- Analyse the state of robotics research and its tendency.
- Plan educational robots for specific tasks to enhance the students’ creativity, skills and self-learning.
The partners share, compare and discuss their research, plan and find solutions together in cooperative teams to produce a common work .
