At DOIT’s project meeting we had also a visit of 14-year-old Sacha from 7th grade at the Billund School.
Cardboard, lenses, tape and a few pens: how to create a dream world in 3D from these things? Children could experience this at the DOIT stand at the MakerDays in theStadt:Bibliothek Salzburg!
We were all looking forward to our second project meeting, followed by two-day long practice partner days of DOIT:
Main topic of Germany’s annual national conference about STEM (MINT Zukunfskonferenz 2017) was “STEAM” – transdisciplinary approaches to develop STEM interests in children. The importance of the event is illustrated though the facts that the venue was the German’s Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy and also Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel gave an introducational note (via video).
