1st EASE SummitAlessandra AngelucciEmailINGEGNO.BESymmetry - Beauty - Truth"'Perhaps all the basic of all [...] is an ability to sense and classify patterns' and most of us consider symmetry beautiful.
But symmetries characterizes also important results in both classical and modern physics.
So, symmetries are intertwined with two of essential threads of human research: that of beauty that of truth."
1st EASE SummitRonen Even TzurKids Life Skills ASBLThe importance of problem-solving skills for kids' futures"It is common for students who are focused on getting good marks to seek the quickest method to reach the right answer. It may involve learning a formula or an answer rather than developing problem-solving skills.
Studies have shown that kids learn better when they are asked to explain how they solve problems.
Robotics, gaming, off screen challenges and other methods can be used in an educational context to teach kids that often there isn’t a single correct or definitive answer."
1st EASE SummitJo Trowsdale/ Richard DaviesUniversity of Central Lancashire / University of SuffolkDesigning authentic STEAM education"Authentic STEAM education must overcome the deficit models of science and arts implicit in many approaches. Two tools might help, a focus on real world activities where the arts and sciences are integral, and a drawing together of arts and science cultures in the classroom as a multicultural arts-science space."
1st EASE SummitFiorella OpertoScuola di RoboticaRobotics and Gender: The Use of Robotics for the Empowerment of Girls in the Classroom"The under-representation of girls and women in the fields of science and technology has long been emphasised. Unfortunately, it is only mentioned in relation to the number and top position of women in universities, research centres and companies.
Too late we realise this, when the choices have been made, and long since."

2nd EASE SummitDanilo KozodercEmail



Simetris - Blue WorkshopLearning by prototyping"Learning through prototyping can be highly effective in the field of STEM. Students create a prototype, test it, make improvements, and learn through the process. They are also very receptive to new knowledge as it helps them make their prototype better. Teachers, on the other hand, need to embrace pedagogical laziness as they need to step back while children are working on their prototypes."
2nd EASE SummitMariapia BorghesanEmailIC "Comuni della Sculdascia" Casale di Scodosia (PD)How to promote STEAM outside the school"STEAM education is a crucial topic for next generations. The European Commission suggests to improve STEAM education for an early age of students.

2nd EASE SummitAshley Morriswww.product-change.comSystems thinking"My proposition is to help students learn how to create simple designs of world beating products such as Concorde, the world’s first and most successful supersonic passenger airliner. Bridge the gap between work and education – Gatsby Benchmark 4. In the world of engineering there’s always a need to group items by common properties such as electrically powered items in a car – the electrical system. In the field of Mathematical Logic this relates to set theory including Venn Diagrams."
2nd EASE SummitRameeta Vasudev SharmaRBK Educational InstitutionsJourney from Scrap to Success“Imagine, you could visualise the intricate and abstract concepts of science and mathematics.” For example, a student who studies the topic “Reflection” in science class do not get any connection of the same topic he/she studies in the mathematics class. Are they totally different? Or are there some connections between the two? Effective implementation of STEAM education would serve several purposes including interdisciplinary education and technology integration in the K-12 segment.
