Chapter
Interdisciplinary projects have the potential to strengthen creative computational thinking of students and to support the development of their talents. When interdisciplinary projects and real-world problems are combined students are required to use their creativity, academical knowledge and exert interdisciplinary thinking. To develop students’ t...

The Children’s Congress is an event, developed to meet a demand for strengthening computational thinking and to increase the interest in STEAM subjects. This congress brings teachers, university students and pupils together to work interdisciplinary on real-life problems. During these proceedings, the pupils slip into the role of researchers and sc...

When Austria introduced the new mandatory subject “Basic Digital Education” in September 2018, computational thinking finally made it into the curriculum. Schools can choose to offer specific subjects or dispense the content into already existing subjects where seen fit. But research shows that it is better to implement computational thinking in ot...
Conference Paper
This paper describes an experiment with gifted secondary school students from fifth to eighth grade. The students were presented with a strategy game and challenged to solve different tasks together. This was done by having the students try out the game in different ways, model, and print their own version of the game in 3D and develop a life-size...
Conference Paper
Interdisciplinary projects can support students in their creativity and challenge them in their academic knowledge. This leads to students that are more motivated and therefore higher achieving. Especially gifted students need these extra challenges to develop their full potential. Based on this research, a talent club for gifted students of primar...

Project
At the Children’s Congress pupils can slip into the role of researchers. Their task is to solve a real world problem by using strategies from the STEAM field. In this process the pupils are supported by teachers, students of the teacher education and students of the Honors Program from the STEAM department at the Johannes Kepler University Linz. They work together in interdisciplinary projects, where mathematical problem-solving gets combined with arts, and two of the basic concepts of computer science: computational thinking and development of creative (digital) products. The products and results are presented at a final event by the pupils themselves.
