EDU-ARCTIC presented in Brussels. New teachers on board!

On Saturday 6th of May, we took opportunity to present EDU-ARCTIC to participants of the 14th Science Projects Workshop in the Future Classroom Lab, organised by Scientix and Next-Lab, which took place in Brussels in European Schoolnet office.

This event was a special edition for ambassadors. The 30 most active Scientix ambassadors  and 16 Next-Lab ambassadors attended the event. In total 61 participants from over 23 countries joined the event.

ER4STEM, EDU-ARTIC and ERIS projects were also present and run excellent workshops.

We started with 10 min. presentation entitled: The Arctic and Polar research for STEM education: EDU-ARCTIC and ERIS projects. It was followed by two 45-min. workshops on the EDU-ARCTIC tools. Online lessons module were presented in details and teachers had a chance to connect with Dagmara Bożek-Andryszczak, who spent two years at Polish Polar Stations (both in the Arctic and Antarctica) and Piotr Stankiewicz, teacher – practitioner and EDU-ARCTIC methodology expert. Short competitions based on polar issues and EDU-ARCTIC portal were also conducted with polar puzzles as prizes.

The general reception was very positive. Teachers had a chance to get familiar with 5 EDU-ACTIC components. We welcomed 17 new teachers, who registered into the portal, from Bulgaria, Croatia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain and Turkey. We are excited to have therefore 2 new countries on board: Finland and Turkey.
