Sobre o conteúdo
Education Through Research refers to both the instructor's positioning herself as a teacher-researcher as well as a means of introducing students to research methods and ethics. By taking research as a model, school culture reconnects with the rigor of the scientific approach, the development of critical thinking, the desire to explore the unknown and to innovate while inspiring creativity and collaboration.
Teachers thus engage their students in cooperative, rigorous projects where they utilize numerous skills such as: observing, asking questions, describing, formulating hypotheses, accumulating knowledge, experimenting, modeling, exchanging information, presenting their arguments, and validating results. Asking questions, making mistakes, testing, iteration, comparing the model with reality, teamwork, and opening up the school to the outside world are just some of the drivers of students' learning.
Thanks to the Education Through Research approach, students are introduced at a very young age to the tools and concepts of research and knowledge production. They carry out projects which culminate in a final presentation attesting to what they've learned, their new skills, and how their thinking has progressed.
Why study engineering in primary or secondary school?
Science and technology is a field of exploration conducive to stimulating students' questions and motivation.
The aim of an Engineering in School project is to allow classes to tap into these techniques and know-how to build new knowledge and develop the skills that will enable them to shape the world of tomorrow.
Engineering in the Classroom is an educational model drawing on the methods and issues of engineering in order to develop an innovative, creative, critical, and responsible mindset.
