The Basque Youth Observatory is organising a course titled Fun with Science and Technology. The teaching staff delivering the course, from Deusto LearningLab, is a multidisciplinary group from the School of Engineering of Deusto University consisting of engineers, teachers, and psychologists. Their main goal is to innovate in teaching STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). All the projects they develop are based on research and innovation with a view to transferring the knowledge generated to the educational field.
The overall goal of the programme is to provide a range of resources on the development of computational thinking and the dissemination and promotion of science and technology that are suitable for groups of young people in non-formal education settings.
- Develop ICT and scientific skills.
- Promote cultural dynamism around the development of computational thinking.
- Acquire resources aimed at developing skills linked to computational thinking, such as logic, problem solving, or critical thinking.
- Acquire and implement technological tools that allow interaction with young people and gamify reflection on any subject.
- Encourage research, study, reflection, and debate on scientific facts among young people.
- Understand the importance of scientific data and research to carry out informed projects.
