Robotics and STEM in Education

ABOUT

Robotics and STEM is a training course that promotes the role and contribution of robotics and of technology, engineering, math, and science (STEM) in learning. It aims to provide participants with the theoretical framework of STEM and involve them in learning activities based in project-based learning through robotics.

This course gives participants the opportunity to experience through hands-on activities the STEM content, but also gain self-efficacy and a new view of their own capabilities as STEM teachers/trainers. Participants will be able to develop the digital competences of their learners and prepare them for the digital world by developing the skills of the 21st century (teamwork, problem solving, innovation, project management, programming, communication skills and cognitive skills related to analytic and synthetic thinking, creativity and critical thinking). This course is addressed to anyone who would like to improve their knowledge in Robotics and S.T.E.M. in education. The course will be based in Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus.
