The workshops and S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Robotics, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) are designed and implemented by the Nonprofit Association eduACT – ACT FOR EDUCATION in collaboration with Hellenic Gold.
This program is designed for children and young people of Aristotelis Municipulity, by the scientific team of eduACT with the support of Hellenic Gold, giving access to specialized high-level knowledge and a unique learning experience that trains the mind and promotes analytical thinking.
The purpose of the program is to inspire students and empower them to discover the power of knowledge and to cultivate their individual skills and talents that will make them citizens of the world.
Through innovative teaching methods that cultivate knowledge through play, the children and young people of Aristotelis Municipality will love science and new technologies, while developing various social skills related to creative problem solving, enhancing critical thinking and self-esteem, as well as the effective use of technology.
“The game is the key to reach knowledge”. eduACT approaches education through play and other innovative teaching methods, through its workshops. Kids will build and program using the LEGO® Education elements, within a discursive approach to knowledge. Also, they will solve problems and missions with their robots, always having values and ideals such as teamwork, cooperation, fair play, etc.
This way, they will "love" science and technology by acquiring knowledge and skills, such as familiarity with problem solving and decision making. By improving their analytical and algorithmic thinking through this process, children will be invited to present and express themselves in multiple and creative ways, acquiring the skills necessary for their future.
Congratulations! [...] was even more excited yesterday after the lesson. This time he didn't mind that he didn't make the robot, as his older sister [...]. I think you do a great job. Our children are eagerly awaiting next Sunday!
Congratulations, not only on the quality of the program you provided but also on the quality of your "Teachers". The interest of the children involved in the program was maintained, in my humble opinion, by the interaction with the teaching staff! Therefore, a well-structured program with the best possible teaching staff was put together to bless our generations with excellent quality raw materials (children).
Good luck with your work, have a nice summer!
