EuroSTEAM aims to provide open source resources for teachers across Europe to enhance creative lessons in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
The EuroSTEAM project has brought together seven European partners to create an online toolkit which will aim to enhance the quality of STEAM lessons throughout Europe. The toolkit provides users with free educational lesson resources to be run as workshops either to introduce topics or to enhance a student’s learning in a specific area.
Country: Belgium, Italy, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom
Coordinator: South West College, http://www.swc.ac.uk/
Target groups: education authorities, parents, primary school students, secondary school students, teachers, youth clubs
Topic: Engineering, Maths, Technology, Other
Start year: 2016
End year: 2019
Contact person: Dominic McGeown, dominic.mcgeown (at) swc.ac.uk
Through this project, one of the outputs was to produce a comparative analysis report which looked at the underachievement in STEM skills among our students and how we can go about targeting these students in different ways in order to make these lessons more exciting and engaging.
The report was completed by Thomas More University in Belgium by Stefan Haesan and Erwin Van de Put and is available in hardcopy or can be read for free via our EuroSTEAM online toolkit.
Teaching materials are kept on the project toolkit and target a variety of different themes based around STEAM.
The list of resources held within the website is continuing to grow and we hope to encourage educators throughout Europe to contribute their own resources so that we can build a large library of free lesson resources and to continue to boost the state of STEAM lessons in our classrooms.
