Project
In StarT students carry out projects related to science, technology or mathematics, and teachers get support and training for the implementation of interdisciplinary and collaborative project-based learning. StarT is also a research project. We are interested to know how teachers implement PjBL into their science education and how they implement interdisciplinary and what kind of collaboration they do as part of the PjBL. The StarT program is organized by the LUMA Centre Finland and its cooperation partners. Schools, kindergartens, families and extracurricular activity groups from all around the world are invited to take part in StarT to share ideas, inspiration and the joy of collaborative project-based learning!
