ROBOTIC, STEAM AND MAKER PROJECTS IN PRIMARY/SECONDARY SCHOOL

They move, they have sensors to listen to the world and they can be modified to represent what we want. In this course, you will discover robots and their applications, easy programming software and practice with them to create your own STEAM and Maker projects. You don’t need to have any knowledge of robotics or programming, at the end of the course you will have a basis to start at your center.

You don’t need to have any knowledge of robotics or programming, at the end of the course you will have a basis to start at your center.

There are countless robots on the market. Which one’s better for my center? How are they programmed? What kind of projects can I create? What can you get with robotics? How do I evaluate? These and other questions will be answered during the course in a very practical way. As each teacher has his needs but experimenting and sharing we will discover what kind of projects in Science, Technology, Engineer, Art and Mathematics we can create and integrate maker and recycling vision.

Globally, girls are not attracted to the world of technology, and boys too. It is often due to a lack of referents or lack of work in these areas when they decide what they like. Robotics and programming have evolved and there are many easy-to-use products that we can integrate into classrooms. Thanks to robotics, we can experience scientific concepts and create our own knowledge. We work with the scientific thought, the resolution of challenges, trial and error, management failure, creativity, teamwork, communication, time management,…It is not the solution for everything, but it is one more tool that interests and involves students and that we can use to evaluate concepts and skills.

 

  • Know programming concepts for 3rd Grade and higher (>8 -13 years)
  • Discover and experiment with robots: Arduino, Micro:bit, Lego
  • Experiment with sensors and reality
  • Know coding app’s and web resources
  • Create educational materials about STEAM and Maker projects
  • Learn about different evaluation tools and skills work

Yes, we organize local transportation, hotel, food, cultural visit, and social activities. Please contact us about the details and the offers. We prefer to offer organization fee and the options when your project is granted by Erasmus Plus due to the fact that the cost is changing from date to date and the locations.

A need and profile analysis will be sent to participants to determine the needs and profile of participants before the course. This form of participant profile is very important for us to see the level of knowledge and awareness about the topic, the needs of participants and expectations According to the information obtained from this form, our program is designed. Before our participants come to the country where the course will be implemented, they must make the necessary preparations for the topic. We will send to participants an information pack which has the necessary information to not to face problems during the course and other times. This package includes all logistical information (weather, currency, airport transfer, course location details, contact information, etc.) and preparations for participants for the course. In the course organization team, we have a guide for the groups for practical arrangements and the problems.

Our course is mostly conducted by non-formal education methods. Participants are actively involved in our creative drama activities, and participate in the activity in abundance and learn by having fun. We don’t like power point presentation based courses. We have materials, our body as the most important instruments and creativity. Group and individual works and experiential learning based studies are carried out.

At the end of the course, general oral and written evaluations are made and achievements of the participants are assessed. Cultural excursions and closing events are organized after the course closed with a certificate of attendance. We will share our photos, videos, reports, and materials which are produced during the course with the participants. The course will be monitoring by trainers and reports will be prepared by trainers to inform participants about the quality of the course, outcomes, evaluation results, feedbacks and etc.
