WeGoSTEM - Wallonia

Thu, Oct 1, 2020 12:00 AM

Dwengo vzw/asbl wants to empower teachers so they can discover with their pupils from the 5th and 6th grade their talent for science and technology. We challenge the children to build and program a creative art robot that can draw independently. This way they learn a lot of STEM skills, from technology to computational thinking. For a lot of teachers, building robots in the classroom might be new. Therefore we bundled all our supporting didactic material in a MOOC (massive open online course) and we link every participating school to an experienced WeGoSTEM volunteer. With the online help of their buddy, teachers will be able to bring the workshop in their classroom.

Digital Botschafter werden in RLP ausgebildet um Seniorinnen und Senioren ans Internet heran zu führen. Unter dem Motto, "Senioren Tablet statt Senioren Teller" werden ganz gezielt ältere Mitbürger angesprochen um nicht total abgehängt zu werden. Auch ich werde in Zukunft solche Interessierte als Referent schulen. Mit freundlichen Grüßen Wolfgang Wobido
