POLAR STAR: Guiding the way towards STEAM through innovative learning approaches and contemporary science
POLAR STAR aims to bring together state-of-the-art learning pedagogies and combine them with exciting activities that focus on contemporary science, thus helping teachers to introduce STEAM successfully in their class. More specifically, the project team will combine innovative learning techniques like inquiry learning and the design thinking approach into one seamless “STEAM education” methodology. In addition, teachers be introduced the ΅Science as a wholeΆ interdisciplinary approach which facilitate the identification of connections between science disciplines and discover underlying connections between phenomena. Finally, the POLAR STAR overall methodology will be delivered through a set of 10 activities around Space and Arctic research. Both areas are enormously interdisciplinary and exciting for students and thus make ideal vehicles to teach other sciences, very often considered less appealing, showcasing how such fields of research that might seem irrelevant to peopleΆs needs have in fact a great impact on our lives.

EUREKA: European Engagement in Kids Achievement
The EUREKA Erasmus+ project will up skill teachers in early identification of the most able students and develop them to create a curriculum fit for purpose. Schools and other education institutions should be ready to create an atmosphere of acceptance, recognition and inspiration for the most able children from any background in any country. This includes knowledge and skills in early identification of the most able child, supporting the child through an appropriate curriculum and involving parents/family in the process of his/her education. The partnership is led by TITAN Partnership Ltd in the UK who lead on Most Able initiatives in a large area of Birmingham. Birmingham City University, a Higher Education establishment in the UK, has significant expertise in teacher development and course design and will contribute this to the EUREKA project, a gap in work in this field to date. Ellinogermaniki Agogi, a school in Greece with a large research and development unit, brings great research and creative skills to the partnership and will use this to help develop significant resources whilst GRETB, through two of its highest achieving secondary schools, will contribute expertise from a highly innovative setting in Ireland. The Eureka Project will develop 2 training courses which will be certified by institutions in the UK and the Czech Republic and these will be delivered to participants. These courses will be transferable to other organisations across Europe through availability on websites and through personal contact. They will be developed through a range of professionals including Higher Education Institutions and Educational Psychological Services who are at the forefront of delivery in their respective countries. They will have a multi-disciplinary focus as a consequence and will be developed through audit and analysis of best practice. The training will include modules on identification and interventions to enable Most Able students to fully realise their potential. Two manuals in addition will be developed by partners on these topics through the exchange of practice at transnational meetings. These manuals will be easy to use and will include case studies in a variety of formats.

Democracy through Drama
The Democracy through Drama Erasmus+ project aims to explore how we can use drama to create democratic spaces and classrooms that are sensitive to young peopleΆs voices and to discover how teachers across Europe might facilitate the conditions for this to occur. The project develops ideas and activities that can be implemented by teachers in their classrooms drawn from two relevant educational tools in the field: Drama in Education (DiE) and Mimesis in Education (MiE). We define Democratic Classrooms as spaces for creativity and imagination, where the childΆs experience is acknowledged, valued, nurtured, encouraged and developed. Democratic classrooms are free and safe spaces within the boundaries of a dramatic frame. Thus, drama is a holding environment to enable this and to facilitate collective decision-making by both young learners and teachers. Moving outside of the dramatic frame, then, allows both teacher and pupils to reflect upon the drama and examine the action. Drama in Education (DiE) is a pedagogical process that offers students the possibility of engaging actively with situations they study and examining them from different perspectives through roles and tasks. Importantly, Drama in Education relies on engaging participants in fiction – fiction that they are creating themselves – and this provides a form of protection, offering an educational, rather than a therapeutic perspective. Drama in Education in this sense creates a space for participants to understand the world in which they live. Mimesis in Education (MiE) builds upon a concept of theatrical training and uses it for pedagogical purposes. The concept of mimesis – transforming and recreating contents as poetry – is suitable for diverse educational contexts and practices. Mimesis and poetry are vectors for building a democratic coexistence, in which each member can truly express oneself and be understood in his/her expression by others.

The mission of Scie-Citizens Erasmus+ project is to advance citizen science through knowledge sharing, collaboration, capacity building, and advocacy. The project aims to encourage broad and meaningful participation in citizen science through promoting inclusive and collaborative partnerships and facilitating a community that shares practices, knowledge, and tools to bring recognition to the value and impact of citizen science. The project seeks to create an assessment tool for identifying smart practices using citizen science approaches and collect those practices in a method handbook. The handbook will be a tool-box for trainers, teacher and other facilitators to create innovative and tested instructions all over Europe and across all educational sectors. 70 good practice examples and 7 policy briefs will be published in a comprehensive project eBook. All methods will be documented, collected and published at the end of the project. In order to identify smart practices, the partnership will collect indicators and create an assessment tool. The tool and the method handbook will be open accessible and will be used by institutions from all education sectors in formal and non-formal learning. The project can be understood as a pre-assessment of the needs to create and test European curricula in citizenship building.

Open School Doors
Open School Doors project aims at reducing disparities in learning outcomes affecting learners from disadvantaged backgrounds focusing on the case of migrant/ refugee parents. The growing presence of migrants'/ refugees' children in the European countries' school systems is one of the most striking demographic and social changes in the past few decades. Due to the high rate of migration, migrant/refugee children constitute critical mass of pupils' population in European societies and have already shifted the demographic decrease into an increase in some European populations. During the lifetime of the project a Training Framework (available at http://openschooldoors.org) targeting migrant / refugee parents has been designed and implemented aiming at their stable and long term engagement in school life.

ICAROS - Interdisciplinary and Collaborative themAtic learRning of technOlogy and Science
Project ICAROS (Interdisciplinary and Collaborative themAtic leaRning of technOlogy and Science) aims to promote transnational teacher professional development by the sharing of methodology, best practice, collaborative approaches and results. The partnership is composed of five European secondary schools for students between 15 and 20 years old. The schools are from Greece, Germany, France, Spain and Sweden. The ICAROS project is mainly aimed at enhancing educational practices that will lead to better motivated students with improved study-goal achievements. The assumption is that this can be done through thematic learning with an entrepreneurial learning approach, and student-led knowledge development through experimentation and real-world problem solving. The project nominally centers on the design, development, testing and operation of x-quadrotor drones equipped with cameras and sensors. The project thus makes use of modern technology that captures the imagination of the students, as well as innovative methods spanning over several disciplines, to demonstrate the real-world applicability of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and other related subjects. The project also aims to inspire the students to develop an entrepreneurial approach to science, research and technology and to encourage independent knowledge development.

Schools Study Earthquakes
The “Schools Study Earthquakes” (SSE) Erasmus+ project focuses on the study of a physical phenomenon with great societal impact and proposes pedagogical practices based on inquiry-based methods that are more effective in science education. The objective of this combination is on one hand to increase children¶s and students¶ interest in science, on how science is made and how it affects everyday life, and on the other to stimulate teacher motivation on up-taking innovative teaching methods, subjects and practices to enrich and renew the science curriculum. One key objective of the project is to provide increased opportunities for cooperation and collaboration between schools across European countries and encourage relationships between stakeholders of both formal and informal education by establishing a network of schools that will study real data, do real analysis of real seismic activity in real time. The SSE project will enhance secondary science teachers¶ capacity to teach science effectively based on the pedagogical principles of inquiry-based science education while being able to engage students in employing real-problem solving skills, handling and studying situations, and participating in meaningful and motivating science inquiry activities. SSE is carried out by a consortium of educational institutes from five countries across Europe, namely Greece, Italy, Cyprus, Turkey and Bulgaria, all with significant seismic activity. In recognition of the significance of the project objectives and activities in Greece and the neighbour countries, SSE received an honourable distinction by the state according to which the Schools Study Earthquakes activities are under the Auspices of H.E. the President of the Hellenic Republic.
