The course also integrates some digital visualising techniques, adding a more artistic touch to STE(A)M. The course is organised in cooperation with a Portuguese secondary school, where we can use the technical infrastructure and digital devices.
We will fully use the interesting aspects the city of Lisbon offers. The exercises are centred on the idea of building bridges or spans. During the course visits are planned to interesting places in Lisbon that are dominated by important bridges.
Furthermore, we integrate a visit the huge former electric power plant and the recently opened museum of art, architecture and technology (www.maat.pt/en), both situated in Belém.
It’s clear that the location of the course in Lisbon, will contribute to its success.
The participants don’t have to come from education systems in which STE(A)M is an official or separate discipline. Teachers of technology, science, applied science, engineering, arts, visual arts, laboratory… can perfectly integrate the STE(A)M methods into the normal courses.
During the course there is half a day of free time to enjoy of the cultural aspects of Lisboa.
