STEM on the Move

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!

This project derives its stunning effect by combining several innovation objectives in a new and unusual way:

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (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 intend 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!

Technology and didactics will be developed to teach Physics, Biomechanics, Technology, Mathematics etc.

The first four STEM learning modules will be:

“STEM by Throwing”:
Development of different throwing gadgets (with embedded sensors) for measuring throwing parameters and making them visible on devices like tablets, smartphones etc.

“STEM by Swimming”:
Development of a waterproof in-ear device interacting with further sensor systems, enables direct communication with the teacher/trainer and collects/processes different physical and biological data.

“STEM by Cycling”:
Development of a module teaching how to cycle and the mechanics, physics etc. of cycling, and about how to fix bicycles.

“STEM School Tours to High-Performance Centers”:
The idea is to use available technologies in sports high-performance centres and to put them into learning contexts of STEM. The involvement of top athletes will further increase the attractiveness of this approach.
