The experience gained through the STEAM project at Iunior and Petranova International Primary schools, where robotic components where introduced during the 2019-2020 school year for the development of computational thought and deeper knowledge of the English language, has led Cefa schools to take part in the competition “ Educational projects in the Future” of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers in order to implement a similar educational project starting from kindergarten.
The project developed by the schools has been accepted and will be one of the 13 financed by the Regione Lazio. The main objective is to develop curiosity towards the language of coding and robotics in 150 of our 4 and 5 year olds at Petranova International, Mongolfiera and Primavera del Campus, offering the children the opportunity to come closer to the world of science in a playful manner.
The projects will use the robotics material already in use in the schools but will be developed through the kindergartens’ annual planning, favoring the instrumental and total involvement in this thematic especially for the girls who are normally less interested in the use robotic instruments.
Thanks to this project the schools intend to strengthen the educational continuity of CEFA Schools’ growth process. Alongside tutorship and bilingualism, pillars of Cefa schools educational projects which, beginning from the kindergarten, potentiate the personal and linguistic capacities of each child, the Steam projects will contribute in shortening the distance from the world of scientific subjects such as Science Math and Technology.
