Engaging pupils into manufacturing: from valleys and local approach to international level
Engaging pupils towards technical studies is a very urgent need in Europe and EMBRYO project aims at drastically increasing the amount of pupils interested in manufacturing studies. During the project, an analysis of the current teaching contents will be carried out together with secondary schools and novel manufacturing related contents will be specified for future pupils. After this diagnosis, demonstrators for a project based learning approach will be chosen and a new Arduino manufacturing kit to be used at classrooms by pupils 16 years old and above will be developed. Four classrooms (Spain-Germany) will be trained on manufacturing and a challenge will be solved by students working in groups. Industry visits will be organised to make the students aware about the new technologies and the current problems in the manufacturing sector. Finally, the first pupils international forum on manufacturing will be organized and the new concept will be up-scaled to be used at international level.
