Transnational project meeting held in Lisbon

During the 10th and 11th of September, partners of the EuroSTEAM consortium met once again to share their progress of the project with each other. This time the venue for the meeting was Lisbon, Portugal and with the temperatures reaching 30 degrees it was a perfect destination for a post Summer meeting.

Our meeting was hosted by the fantastic staff at ETIC, the building was a great venue for a creative project such as EuroSTEAM. On the second day of the meeting partners had the opportunity to tour the building and see all of the various resources and technology which they use within their lessons to provide the students with most creative experiences within their education.

During the meeting, partners had the opportunity to discuss the various work packages and intellectual outputs associated with the project. It was clear during the meeting that the project has been progressing well and that all outputs are in a positive position to make an impact throughout Europe within the next year. The focus of these meeting has now shifted onto the 3rd intellectual output which is the online toolkit, a website which has been developed to share the outcomes of the project and to provide the camp resources to educators across Europe.

Now we have entered the final year of the EuroSTEAM project and during this year we will be revealing all of the work completed by our partners. Throughout the year we will have 3 events to disseminate the results, with the first of these events taking place in March 2019 in Explora Museum, Rome.

EuroSTEAM project at ETEN Annual Conference

Between the 22nd and 24th of march, the Annual Conference of ETEN took place at Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. The European Teacher Education Network (ETEN) is a diverse network of educators from nearly 20 countries. The mission of ETEN is to promote cooperation, exchange, research and publication for universities and institutions engaged in education. ETEN was founded in 1988 and teacher educators and researchers from 50 different institutes of 20 countries all over the world have joined the network.

The theme of this year conference was “Diversity as Resource” and many organizations from different countries came to it and the attendees had the opportunity to participate in different workshops and sessions. One of the workshops was led by Nerea Lopez Salas. Nera participated as a guide or tutor in the trial of CAMP 1 that took place in Lizardi Secondary Institute (Zarautz, Basque Country). She explained the EuroSTEAM project, her experience at the trial and next steps to be taken before the end of the project.

It is great to share the details on the EuroSTEAM project within such a strong network of educators and we look forward to releasing our final materials in the next year so that these can be used by educators throughout Europe.

Transnational partner meeting takes place in San Sebastian

On the 8th of March partners of the EuroSTEAM project once again met up to discuss progress within the project and speak about upcoming actions. This time around the meeting was hosted by Tknika members Jon and Bittor. The venue for the meeting was the Tknika quarters in San Sebastian.

On the first day of the meeting partners began discussions on the progress of the STEAM camps which are currently being delivered across 6 regions of Europe. Partners commented that the camps are going well and are being received excellently by the students and teachers of our collaborative schools within each region. Further work will be taking place on the camps within the upcoming months to prepare them for sharing to all educational establishments throughout Europe.

In the evening time, partners were given a unique culinary experience in Irigoien Ciderhouse in Astigaragga. Throughout the evening partners had some great food and tasted some of the local cider that has been produced in the ciderhouse. The evening shared a lot of the traditions and culture of the region and it is safe to say all partners had an enjoyable time.

On the 2nd day of the meeting, partners once again met up to discuss the remaining aspects of the project. In this morning, upcoming tasks and main actions from the project have been established and many of these actions will be visible throughout the upcoming months.

The next partner meeting will take place in Lisbon with a date to be finalized by partners.
