Abstract [en]

botSTEM is an ERASMUS+ project aiming to raise the utilisation of inquiry-based collaborative learning and robots-enhanced education. The project outputs are specifically aimed to provide in- and pre-service teachers in Childhood and Primary Education and children aged between 4 and 8, with research-based materials and best practices that use integrated Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) and robot-based approaches, including code-learning, for enhancing scientific literacy in young children. Initial results from the project from a qualitative analysis of implemented activities during science teaching in preschools in Spain are presented here. Despite the possible obstacles that preschool teachers initially expressed, the preliminary analysis of the implementations indicates that the proposed STEM integrated framework, including inquiry teaching and engineering design methodologies, can be used with kids as young as 4 y.o. In the case of a project about magnets, the children seem to have improved/used? some scientific ideas, applied these ideas to design a magnetic toy and learnt about spatial orientation through use of robots. Also, the development of the project seems have allowed a fruitful intersubjective communication between teachers and students.
