Objectives
  • To provide students with the essential information & knowledge in order to raise their environmental, social and health awareness;
  • To connect STEM fields with human concerns on environmental, economic, and social systems;
  • To inspire students, and young women in particular, into pursuing STEM-related careers;
  • To cultivate 21st-century skills such as creativity and innovation, critical thinking, communication and collaboration;
  • To inspire and improve the competence of teachers in order to teach novel topics, such as bio- inspired science and engineering, biotechnology;
  • To increase the teacher professional development, digital skills and competencies;
  • To promote collaborative work and exchange of knowledge and ideas among teachers in Europe.
Activities
  • To assess the awareness and the needs of the two target groups (teachers and students) about the connection between modern technology and natural mechanisms;
  • To identify hot topics in biotech innovation of interest in STEM education, developing a BioS4You methodology for school curriculum;
  • To establish the BioS4You e-learning platform adapted for STEM curriculum designing;
  • To train at least 250 school teachers to develop learning units about nature-inspired topics for STEM education;
  • To create 40 national (10 in each country) teaching/learning units and 5 transnational ones for STEM education;
  • To implement pilot- study of bio-inspired teaching/learning environments in school curricula and in informal settings;
  • To provide the possibilities to discover new and innovative curricula about STEM topics to a wide range of EU audiences including the sector of school education, stakeholders, the scientific community as well as the general public.
Results
  • RESEARCH ON HOW TECHNOLOGY AND ENGINEERING BRING STEM TO LIFE AND VICEVERSA 
  • BioS4You e-LEARNING PLATFORM 
  • BioS4You METHODOLOGY AND TEACHING/LEARNING UNITS DESIGN
  • COLLECTION OF BIO-INSPIRED TEACHING/LEARNING UNITS EFFECTIVE IN STEM EDUCATION 
  • PILOT PHASE THROUGH FORMAL, NON-FORMAL AND INFORMAL LEARNING EXPERIENCES, ASSESSMENT AND EVALUATION
