STEM is boring!

… at least that’s what most people think. However, we set out to prove that STEM is not boring – or it doesn’t have to be.

In our project “STEM on the move” we bring STEM topics into “the real world” in order to make them less theoretical and more fun, for example: Calculating a parable is not much fun in itself, but if you throw a ball and want to increase the throwing distance … suddenly parabolas become a concrete, real-life problem and finding a solution becomes more interesting.

INANDA
Inanda Wilderness Park during Covid-19 times

Several programmes of the Inanda Wilderness Park (initiative of Green Corridors) had to be postponed due to the South African lockdown in the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result, virtual home programmes were created, aimed to ensure physical activity and mental stimulation during the quarantine period. In this programme, WhatsApp groups with the parents of creches, primary schools and high schools were created and videos with weekly age appropriate activities were sent into the groups.

How to turn cities into active cities?

A continuing urbanisation, a decrease of urban green spaces and an increase of sedentary behavior. These are current developments within our societies. Thus, the main topic of this project is “How to turn cities into active cities?”. Therefore, we will be investigating how city spaces can become health and wellbeing spaces. As a result, we want to create a manual “How to make your city an active city!” and develop one practical application study in each partner country.

Bringing more joy of movement to people!

Whereas opportunities for sports and movement exist plentiful, the current offers are not attractive to all the people. “WannaGos” are those people, who would like to be physically active, but who do not find suitable offers. Therefore, in this project we want to investigate motivations and lifestyle parameters of “WannaGos” concerning physical activity and incoporating these into the development of new movement offers.

Movement based STEM learning modules.

Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) are boring for pupils, especially for girls? There is a lack of specialists within certain working environments and a great need of educated people? For tackling this challenge, we want to develop movement based STEM learning modules for schools. Thereby, we want to attract the attention of young people by developing this new approach: A combination of learning, experencing, being active and having fun.
