Practical STEAM Education

Learn the latest skills

Technology surrounds our daily life, but how much do we understand it and even better are able to modify it? This is why demand for STEAM-education is growing. Often focus is on electronics, coding and robotics, but alongside is needed practical skills and knowledge of how materials, physics, design process and tools work. Finland has the world's longest history of craft & technology education in primary school, over 130 years. Today this legacy and knowledge has developed to the most versatile K12 STEAM-education, where students use a large variety of materials, tools and machines to create and learn. Digital fabrication and robotics alongside practical skills, tool handling and technology reading skills give students capability to understand and develop our physical and technical environment. Practical STEAM education course offers insight to Finnish solutions on technology education, by visiting schools, shop classes and makerspaces. Main part of the course is a four-day workshop period at the Teijo Makerspace, where focus is on learning by doing!

The added value of the course is that the course offers innovative methods and approaches to be implemented into daily activities in teaching and learning. Additionally, the course Practical STEAM Education, offers participation in an experience exchange on EU level.
