Five European schools from Croatia, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland and Romania have started the STEAM Time – Solve UNESCO Crime project, emanating from the increasing need to implement more attractive teaching methods which will allow further development of 21st century skills, while spreading European awareness and emphasizing the importance of the European UNESCO cultural heritage sites.
The main goal of the project is to develop European citizenship through increased knowledge of other cultures by creating and exchanging interesting materials based on the European UNESCO cultural heritage theme. In addition, the aim is to implement innovative practices and to exchange experiences related to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) on a European level.
This will be accomplished by solving a UNESCO “crime” by means of performing various tasks which involve the STEAM area as well as UNESCO cultural heritage knowledge. These tasks will be carried out during five short-term exchanges of groups of pupils, over a timespan of two years, one in each partner school.
