GARDENStoGROW

GARDENStoGROW is a project co-financed by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, aimed to provide ECEC teachers with an innovative teaching methodology, tools and materials for fostering inclusive attitudes and key competences acquisition from a very early stage of child development (0-6), through horticulture.

GARDENStoGROW is a project co-financed by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. The project aims to encourage the adoption of innovative and inclusive pedagogical practices at pre-school level, based on urban and social horticulture, in 4 European countries (Italy, Spain, the UK, Bulgaria), for the development and acquisition of basic, civic and transversal competences.

GARDENStoGROW gardens will become permanent and living “learning places” for local schools, pupils, children and families, where they can meet and learn from each other.

The project will generate 4 Intellectual Outputs:

  • IO1 GARDENStoGROW Inventory;
  • IO2 GARDENStoGROW Methodology Guidelines;
  • IO3 GARDENStoGROW Educational Materials & Training course;
  • IO4 Learning, Affordable, Inclusive and Open Gardens for Innovative ECEC practices.

Moreover, GARDENStoGROW will organise 2 training activities, in Italy and in the UK, 4 multiplier events to disseminate the project results, 4 transnational meetings and 4 management and implementation activities.

Together with Explora, GARDENStoGROW includes 10 European partners – 4 universities and research centres, 1 children’s museum, 1 foundation and 4 schools:

Project duration: 01-09-2017-29-02-2020 (30 months)

EuroSTEAM

EXPLORA is partner of EuroSTEAM, an Erasmus+ Programme co-funded project which aims to provide accessible STEAM camps throughout Europe which teachers can use in their classrooms to enhance the students experience of the STEAM subjects.
The EuroSTEAM project brings together 7 European partners, each with specific insights and expertise in STEAM education, to produce 3 innovative outputs for schools.
Besides Explora, led by South West College, the partners are:

The main output of the project is the development of a training toolkit for teachers to deliver effective and innovative STEAM education activities which nurture and enhance natural creativity in order to increase student’s interest in scientific education and careers. EuroSTEAM offers school learners as well as their educators’ different perspectives and approaches to find their interests and strengths in STEAM education while providing a better understanding, at the European level, on the impact of innovative teaching practices as a method for addressing underachievement in basic skills of maths, science, art and literacy.

Download the toolkit

The lasting outcome of the project is to increase the quality of STEAM education ensuring the availability of innovative didactical materials across Europe to increase motivation for both teachers and learners to increase their understanding maths, science, art and literacy education.

In particular, Explora is responsible of the development of STEAM Camps Curricula and Course Material, for the delivery of effective, innovative and multidisciplinary maths, science and literacy education. The STEAM Camps will be tested with 700 aged 11-14 pupils across 5 EU countries (Belgium, Italy, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom) during the project’s duration. Moreover, Explora hosts a final conference to disseminate the projects intellectual outputs (Multiplier Event).

On March 18th, Explora proposed the STEAM DAY, an event for disseminating the results from EuroSTEAM, through a meeting for teachers, educators and amateurs of STEAM with meetings and demonstration activities by many education and research personalities.

Project duration: 01/09/2016 – 31/08/2019
