STEAM time-Solve UNESCO crime
Primary school De Wegwijzer ,Tilburg, Netherlands – local activities and results for the implementation and dissemination of the Erasmus+ project STEAM Time – Solve UNESCO Crime.
After the first meeting in Croatia, from 5 to 9 November 2018, the project team made up a short movie describing their experience:
Also, some of the teachers in the Netherlands school worked hard to solving the Croatian Math tasks.
The students participating to the first mobility made their personal exchange evaluation. They have written their texts in Dutch so you can possibly practice your language skills 🙂
After the second meeting in Italy, from 25th till the 29 of March 2019, the students have written their experiences in Dutch:
Italië Evaluatie Bente
Solving Italian Math-tasks in the Netherlands.
A short experience from one of our teachers who joined the mobility in Italy:
In preparation for this trip I studied Italian, so I could communicate a little bit with our Italian colleagues and the locals. Mobility to Italy has really been an added value for me. I wanted to know more about the culture, I did learn this by fully opening up to the customs and habits. We have participated in the daily method of education, focused on different levels. The math assignments had a link with cultural heritage, which made it meaningful every time. In some areas it took some getting used to the Italian culture, for example dealing more flexibly with agreements and times, but we learned from that too. The guidance of our children was also a success, encouraging them to engage in conversation and learning with the children of the different countries. Friendships have developed and our students have learned a lot from this mobility on a personal level. What more do you want!
The exchange to Romania was the thirth exchange in our project STEAM time-Solve UNESCO crime.
Of course we made a lot of pictures and movies in beautiful Romania.
The evaluations the pupils and the teachers made after the exchange:

To dessiminate the project STEAM time in the schools belonging to the management board Xpect Primair, we made a SWAY presentation: http://ERASMUS+ “We hebben het nog nooit gedaan dus we denken dat we het wel kunnen” Ga naar deze sway

The Dutch National Agency has included an interview about the project STEAM time-Solve UNESCO crime in its annual magazine.
The title of the interview is: “We plant a seed for the rest of their lives”. It’s written in Dutch.
Due to COVID 19 the exchange with Poland unfortunately could not continue.
To finish our project in The Netherlands in Corona time we decided to organise a digital mobility.
This mobility took place from 1 to 4 July 2021:

Today was the third day of our digital mobility organised by the Netherlands. It was a very busy day and full of very interesting activities! We started the day sining all together our song, the STEAM time – solve UNESCO crime song. Then we saw a video about the textile museum from the Textilemuseum in Tilburg and we tried to recreate a weaving product with needle and thread ourselves.
Aftre this we learned and experimented to draw like Vincent van Gogh with the help of the art teachers from Vincents drawingroom in Tilburg. We solved math tasks about Vincent van Gogh and the Efteling, a big themepark by Tilburg. We solved problems in de digital escape room about Dutch and Tilburg heritage. In the end it was really nice to share our emotions and try to get to know our European friend by video call. We are looking foreward to tomorrow!
4 June 2021
On the final day of the digital exchange we all learned about the Dutch mills watching the movies prepared by our Dutch partners about Woudagemaal and Kinderdijk. The students solved also 2 math problems in small groups online. Then we learned about Delfts blue and each partner school made their own Delfts blue plates. It was a beautiful day which continued with an online Kahoot game about the Dutch UNESCO heritage. The day and also the digital mobility ended with the ceremony of giving certificates to all students participants. We see each other online, we sang together again and we said goodbye, hoping that when the better times will come we will see each other live.
