Room for Art was the organizer of events and the host of youth from Dublin Ireland within the Erasmus+ project “Creating a STEAM Platform.” These two days were filled with a variety of activities including lectures, workshops, and study visits within the framework of STEAM and project based learning.
All activities provided our guests from our partner organization CityWise Education-Dublin with new knowledge, problem solving and creative skills. Above all, our guests had the opportunity to experience STEAM methodologies and examples in order to understand STEAM's relevance to our lives and our future. All the activities were based on the results of the survey conducted by both partner organizations which investigated how young people view their problem solving skills and if they enjoy carrying them out, which is a key aspect of the project. The survey also found out what types of activities young people would like to see in the project.
Visit and workshop at the Cyprus Computer History Museum
The team visiting from CityWise Education-Dublin had the opportunity to travel through time to see the marvellous Antikythera Mechanism and to meet great women scientists. From the first woman mathematician Ypatia to Ada Lovelace the first computer programmer, to Katherine Johnson the ‘Human Computer’ who broke the barriers of race and gender and practically took humanity to the moon, to the 4004 processor which signalled the era of personal computers we and our Erasmus+ guests from Dublin marvelled at humanity’s achievements.
