The CREATIONS Summer School introduces innovative approaches and activities that involve teachers and students in Scientific Research through creative ways that are based on Art. The Course focuses on the development of effective links and synergies between schools and research infrastructures in order to spark young people’s interest in science and in following scientific careers.
The CREATIONS Summer course aims:
The CREATIONS Summer Course refers to teachers and artists wishing to extend the “dialogue” between scientists and the educational community by enforcing the collaboration between schools and research organisations (using the artistic expression as a catalyst). The course seeks to promote scientific culture in society by helping young people to acquire a better understanding of the role of science and technology in society.
The course will last for 6 days, consisting in total of ca. 25 hours of workshop based training, such as presentations followed by hands-on sessions. The lectures and the demonstrations of the training course will be held in an auditorium equipped with a data projector and a laptop, whereas, the workshops will be held in a multimedia laboratory where each participant will have direct access to a PC with internet connection and will carry out planned exercises.
Before coming to the summer school, participants will be asked to join the CREATIONS Summer School 2018 online Community of the CREATIONS portal.
In order to be informed about the basic aspects of the preparation they had to do for the summer school. Moreover, the participants are encouraged to explore the groups and the educational objects of the community that are constantly being updated.
As a follow up, teachers will be asked to upload any kind of material they have in their disposal (e.g. texts, photos, videos etc.) on the summer school on line community on which the presentations delivered by the tutors will be uploaded as well. In order to assess whether, and to what extent, the course has reached its objectives and expected results the participants will have to answer, before the beginning and after the end of the course, a set of relevant questionnaires that will be provided by the course providers. The results of the questionnaires/survey will be available to all participants of the course.
The Summer School is organized by the Research and Development Department of Ellinogermaniki Agogi which has long experience in organizing thematic summer schools and training courses (click here to see the list of past events). The CREATIONS course is held in the framework of the "CREATIONS" project (H2020, Ref. Num: 665917).
