GOALS

STEM 1 is a subproject consisting of two parts. The first part includes the creation of in classroom interdisciplinary activities, and the second part includes the creation of four field classes (Figure 1).

Figure 1: Activities within the STEM 1 subrproject.
Interdisciplinary practical activitiesInterdisciplinary field classes
each activity is to include knowledge useful in everyday lifeeach field class will include content from chemistry, biology, geophysics, statistics and cross-curricular topics

will be described in the form of extended teaching scenarios:

  • instructions for the teachers
  • worksheets / instructions / descriptions of activities for students

will be described in the form of extended teaching scenarios:

  • instructions for the teachers
  • worksheets / instructions / descriptions of activities for students
each activity should include at least three cross-curricular topics (Health, Learning how to learn, Entrepreneurship, Personal and social development, Use of information and communication technology, Civic education) 
Figure 2: Elements that should be included in all interdisciplinary activities and all field classes.

Within both parts, four themes were chosen: fire, water, earth and air. Each activity and field class will include content from chemistry, biology, geophysics and statistics. Expectations of the cross-curricular topic Sustainable Development are mandatory part of every interdisciplinary activity and every field class. Figure 2 shows other elements that should be included in all materials.
