A technology and science program for developing mild skills and life skills for students and teachers by using educational robotics.
STEAM and Robotics can now be integrated into your classroom through an educational program that you can customize to suit your students. You will find it very interesting and creative, both you and children!
Α few words about the program
Your school will be equipped with robotic kits and sets. Children will work in groups to build and program a robot, while developing their creativity by building models to propose solutions to real-world problems.
The design of the program is a collaboration between the Ministry of Education and Institute of Educational Policy with the Educational Non-Profit Organization - Eduact as well as the Organization for the Recognition of Science and Technology – FIRST
The purpose of the program is to utilize the specialized knowledge of the latter two in the field of robotics, for the benefit of all students and teachers of all specialties and to create a community of support - exchange of know-how and discovery of knowledge.
Distance Teacher Training
Previous experience or special knowledge is not required! Teachers of all specialties can undertake the implementation of the program, after training and gaining the confidence to start.
10 hours of modern training are provided to understand the educational approaches and how to implement the program, as well as 6 hours of easy and fun training on how to use educational robotics equipment. The process is done through an interactive workshop and equipment that will be sent to your school, while you will have time to practice with the equipment before you start the implementation in the classroom.
In addition, you are given:
- Asynchronous training material to refer to whenever you wish
- Handbooks for teachers
- Handbooks for students
