To increase interest and participation of young people in the activities of science centres designed to inspire them to take on scientific challenges and come up with their own scientific projects. Thanks to the international cooperation between teachers and educators from several science centres, the project devises innovative methods and tools based on new technologies that clarify scientific issues, inspire to take initiative and promote creative thinking. By developing teachers’ and educators’ competences, exchanging knowledge and good practices, and encouraging young people to create educational content, the project promotes the use of centres as tools for building an innovative educational environment.
- Cooperation between science centres in Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary and Greece.
- Exchange study visits during which participants underwent training in gamification, storytelling, escape room design, ICT and tinkering, and shot educational films at exhibitions.
- Development of on-site educational games using a mobile application as an example of innovative tools in education.
- Writing gamification-based lesson scenarios to give teachers a tool to continue the project at schools.
