URJC team held a multiplier event on June 29, 2013, in its Móstoles campus. Its goal was to present to the STEAM Upgrade’s stakeholders the main activities developed within this project; namely:

  • Helping teachers from all levels (first childhood, primary, secondary, etc.) improve their level of digital competences by learning specific methods and techniques.
  • Carry out a workshop where the attendants developed their own teaching activities or educational contents using educational robots and 3D printers.

The multiplier event was composed of four parts:

  1. An introduction to the STEAM-Upgrade project, its partners, the educational contents created within the project and the resources loaded in the Geogebra online repository.
  2. A primer course on 3D modeling and printing, where attendants learned how to use an easy-to-use 3D modeling software and how to continue with the process until a 3D simple tool (Archimedes lever) was created.
  3. A short workshop presenting different ideas about how to create educational robots-based activities, first, for first education children, and second, for primary or secondary students. In these activities the robots were used as means for facilitating achieving specific didactic goals, rather than using them as tools for learning programming.
  4. The last part of the multiplier event included programming educational robots for a specific activity using a collaborative approach, stressing social aspects of programming and informatics, specifically addressed to improve girls’ interest in these areas.

The multiplier event was coupled to a pilot activity developed in the URJC’s campus of Vicálvaro, in which the first three activities were presented to a different audience.

The pictures included below show different activities performed within these activities.
