The Scientix projet is funded by the European Comission and encourages STEAM education and try to promote vocations to STEM careers. This year we have collaborated with them in the STEM Discovery Campaign organizing a competition to promote STEAM education in Europe and other countries.
This week we will release the results of the competition.
Although our students and teachers are working from home, our project hasn’t been stopped. We continue our work with the Leaders’ Team of Teachers who inspire their students creating good STEAM practices together.
is a small basic school in the town Klasterec nad Ohri. Our town is situated in
the north- west of Czech Republic. It is an industrial town with many factories
and long history of porcelain.
Not many of our students are interested in Science. Our school joined the project “The colours of Science” to encourage students to study science and show them the interesting things from Science, to understandscience is not boring. It was a chance for the school to continue withthe same partners from last Comenius project from 2012-2014 too.
After receiving several entries for our competition, we are now evaluating the proposals. This is not an easy question, as there are a lot of quality ones. We are impressed by the good level on the participants!
We hope to release the results in June. Please, stay safe till then!!
dedicated the first half of this year to the »Colors in Art«.
Color is one of the most important elements of impressionism. As there are four well-known French impressionists painters: Claude Monet, Eduard Manet, Edgar Degas and Auguste Renoir, we also had four Slovenian impressionist painters. One of them is Matija Jama, who was together with Rihard Jakopič, Ivan Grohar and Matej Sternen, one of the best representatives of Slovenian impressionism.
because Matija Jama was born in January ,
I would like to introduce him to you. So- he was born in Ljubljana on January
4th in 1872 and he also died in
Ljubljana on April 6 th in 1947.
The 2020 STEM Discovery Campaign is a joint international initiative organized by Scientix that invites projects, organisations, libraries, schools, universities and youth clubs across Europe and around the world, to celebrate careers and studies in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The tagline for this year’s campaign is “Innovative Trends in Education”. The main goal of the STEM Discovery Campaign, is to showcase the magnitude of the efforts teachers and other people interested in STEM education make during the academic year while using learning resources and engaging their students in educational activities promoting STEM.
“The colours of Christmas” is a beautiful Christmas carol composed by the well-known British musician John Rutter, which you can listen to here. As the lyrics attests, Christmas is a time when colours are present in a particular way in day-to-day life and in the different symbols that characterize this time of year.
Would you like to join STEM and Arts? Do you have good ideas about
integrating the topic of “colours” in a STEM lesson plan? Would you like to
participate in an international competition where your ideas will be highlighted?
Do you want to win a drone?
“Atelier for STE(A)M” Erasmus+ project invites you to send us a scenario or lesson plan developed around the topic of “The colours of Science” and you will have the opportunity to gain visibility to your work and, if you are one of the 6 best applications, win a drone to continue working STEM in a practical way with your students.
Europe needs scientists. But also needs
citizens. Not everyone will be an engineer, or a mathematician, or a chemist.
But all of us will live in a society where Science and Technology are
ubiquitous. It’s very important to educate every student with a solid base to
understand the main concepts that are around him or her. It’s very important to
develop critical thinking and create minds able to take good decisions. Open to
new realities and cultures, ready to act to improve the world where we all
live, where our students will live.
Erasmus+ is a program that tries to build this kind of person. Thanks to these projects, young people can grow in their minds the idea of working together, feeling Europe as a unit where we can think and work with shared aims.
