STEAM education highlights art as one of its five fields. Art’s inclusion is important since it can help learners to develop their creativity, imagination, communication and performance skills that will assist them throughout their education and throughout their lives. Within its mission to heighten the dimension of art as a tool for enhanced learning, Room for Art has partnered with Citywise Education based in Dublin, Ireland within this Erasmus+ project.
The project aspires to create a STEAM platform that will include a series of online tutorials for children between 9 to 15 years old. The platform will become a valuable tool with STEAM educational materials and teachers’ guide for achieving the desired learning outcomes. This open access platform will become available to any organization or individual interested in STEAM education.
Through this survey, Room for Art (Nicosia) and Citywise Education (Dublin) aim to identify the level of young people’s STEAM skills before the commencement of their collaboration to create lesson plans and the subsequent STEAM activities that will follow within the project’s lifetime. The survey investigates 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 aims to find out what types of activities young people would like to see in the project.
