DoSE: Development of STEAM education

2020 until 2023
Project member(s)
Prof. E. Barendsen (Erik)
Project type

It will provide the schools with the necessary toolbox to engage their students, teachers, and other community members in STEAM-related activities by developing an appropriate STEAM school strategy.

By providing adequate guidance and underpinning innovative activities at the national level, the project will expand a network of STEAM schools involving teachers, administrators, and other stakeholders, e.g., STEAM research/non-formal education centers. DoSE will develop complementary blocks of activities:

  • Developing a transnational understanding (definition) of STEAM schools as it is essential to share successful practices at a European level.
  • Guiding schools and their stakeholders in improving the standard of STEAM education activities, organising them not only in the classroom but also in STEAM centres, thus expanding teaching opportunities for students and favour connections and links with STEAM stakeholders outside the school.
  • Compiling existing and offering new innovative STEAM education resources useful for schools to improve their STEAM activities and strategy.
  • Developing a transnational network and community of STEAM schools to allow cross-border peer to peer learning activities.

The Project will address the school education challenges and the role of industry in STEAM education with the active support of the authorities and other stakeholders to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics subjects, while enhancing education and careers to young Europeans and address anticipated future skills gaps within the European Union.
