STEAM Orientation

You are here

To facilitate the teachers in using our methodology we have also developed an 'Orientation' workshopc based on the Design Thinking approach. This Designing Thinking workshop aims to help teachers to prepare 
lessons/activities/projects and/or a whole school year plan based on the POLAR STAR interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary methodology either on their own or in collaboration with their colleagues teaching in the same school. The activity consists of four phases: Feel - Imagine - Create - Share. In each phase you are prompted to reflect on certain questions and use materials and tools of the project to facilitate your everyday teaching planning and/or the creation of STEAM projects.

POLAR STAR aims to bring together state-of-the-art learning pedagogies and combine them with exciting activities that focus on contemporary science, thus helping teachers to introduce STEAM successfully in their class. At the same time the project will focus on the development of students’ key skills and competences as well as deepening their knowledge of fundamental science principles, increasing their appreciation of science and technology and their role in todays’ societies. POLAR STAR aims to offer an open and innovative training framework to teachers of primary and secondary education which will focus on:

  • Promoting the 'Science as a Whole' concept;
  • Promoting a holistic STEM educational approach;
  • Promote the introduction of contemporary science activities in schools;
