A child who solves a code task, compiles a virtual puzzle, draws with virtual voices, or compiles a virtual tangram, playing memory. 4. Main Activity: Encouraging Computer Thinking: "How the Robot Thinks!" You will need a number of arrow flashcards which will be used to guide the caterpillar and mat with field where Caterpillar will navigated by child named programmer.

proSTEMgirls project

Tue, Oct 1, 2019 12:00 AM

The main purpose of the proSTEMgirls project it is to encourage girls (women) to interdisciplinary co-operation in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics STE(A)M fields. Through the project, we want to increase the share of girls (women) in the STEM opportunities, activities and elective courses at both participating schools and wider, thus promoting gender equality. In order to achieve this goal, together with students, we will produce at least three guided learning units, that will be useful in the wider European area and globally (using STE(A)M acronym without A, because it is globally more recognizable), thus supporting the effective use of digital technologies in the field of education. All participants will be empowered for basic work with Micro:bits, with particular emphasis on the possibilities of practical use of Micro:bits, for solving problems from everyday life. By doing this, we will try to reduce gender gaps in access and use of digital technologies and the study and employment of women in the field of ICT in the long run. In order to further extend the usability of Micro:bit, we will produce several useful products, that will include elements formed in the 3D modeling environment of Google Sketchup or 2D InkScape, and later cut out, or engraved with a laser engraving machine.
