RoboSTEAM - Integrating STEAM and Computational Thinking Development by Using Robotics and Physical Devices

Description

RoboSTEAM will define a methodology and a set of tools that will help learners to develop computational thinking by using/programming PD&R in pre-university education stages. The project will also improve teacher education, providing them with a framework for easy STEAM integration in different educational contexts by providing guidelines for good practices and lessons learned adapted to different contexts. All these products will have been tested in different countries and cross-validated in different higher education institutions. In order to do so the project consortium includes eight institutions, five Higher education Institutions and three schools. The idea is to test the methodology and tools in these different institutions so it was possible to know if the transnationality of the project approach.
