Project description

NGSS project aims to promote STEM+Arts in early childhood education. STEM+Arts is an educational approach that incorporates the arts/other disciplines into the more-familiar STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) model with the goal of being more engaging, creative & naturally successful for all members of any educational system. The main focus will be on four skills: communication, critical thinking, collaboration and creativity.

The secondary goals of the project will include:

  • Promote a gender unbiased approach to STEM education;
  • Increase the environmental awareness and sensitivity of young learners;
  • Increase children’s basic skills in STEM+Arts and the competence development of teachers to effectively teach interdisciplinary art and science concepts

The project addresses the following sectors:

  • Gender equality / equal opportunities
  • Key Competences (incl. mathematics and literacy) – basic skills
  • New innovative curricula/educational methods/development of training courses

The following results will be created and implemented by the end of the project:

  • Concept Paper for Early Childhood Education related to STEM+Arts
  • Autodidactic Resources
  • Digital Toolkit for Teacher Training Course and STEM+Art Kit for pupils
  • Online Guidebook for students & teachers how to think and create STEM+Arts education projects
  • Quality Assurance Plan
  • policy Recommendation paper & Impact Report
