Join the POLAR STAR project

Guiding the way towards STEAM through innovative learning approaches and contemporary science
 
Join a project that will bring Polar Research and Space to your classroom!
 
The POLAR STAR team is happy to invite you to become a POLAR STAR collaborator and advisor
In POLAR STAR we value teachers’ opinions and expertise. We are eager to design tools and activities that are meaningful to them and are applicable in their class. To this end, we invite teachers to join us and to become collaborators, advisors and co-creators in the development of the project’s main outcomes.
Science as a Whole

Participate in the design of our "Science as a whole" methodology, which aims to introduce a seamless interdisciplinary teaching approach through concrete guidelines and the Science WAND, a tool which will allow teachers and students to identify meaningful connections between the concepts they learn.

STEAM education

Integrate the team that will produce the "STEAM education" strand of our methodology to facilitate teachers to incorporate all the components of STEAM in their teaching through different tools while also using inquiry and design thinking in the optimum way, not only during projects but also while teaching their own curriculum.

POLAR Activity kit

Co-design and review our arctic research activities which will be part of our POLAR kit. 

STAR activity kit

Co-design and review our arctic research activities which will be part of our STAR kit. 

 
How does it work?
 
The POLAR STAR methodology and kit of activities will be developed during the first year of the project. Teacher collaborators and advisors will be asked to review our design and approach and give us their feedback through online conversations or a written report. Teachers will also participate in participatory design conversations to gather feedback and record their needs and aspirations. All participating teachers will receive a certificate and their names will be added in the list of co-authors and contributors.
