Next September, French curricula is changing for the very first time STEM will be a part of it and taught in first grade ("sixième" with 11 y.o students ). Thanks to the project, teachers who took part in it, feel ready for this new way of teaching. They got familiar with the "STEM spirit", working and exchanging with colleagues and using various items.
The EV3 intelligent brick will be used in this new curricula to make students discover about robotic and programmation. Additionnal materials have been bought to fill the needs: extension box, windmill turbine and solar system all EV3 compatible. The teachers have planed to make students create a rover able to work with sustainable energy!
Teachers are very excited about it!
