The Ukrainian Future Classroom Lab - Lviv STEM center (UA)

The Ukrainian Future Classroom Lab is a learning space in the informatics office where students will be taught how to be creators, not just users of technology. In this space all teachers of our school can experiment with innovative pedagogical approaches in a flexible learning environment that supports students to think critically. The Ukrainian Future Classroom Lab is not open only to the school's members but also to all the teachers and the students of our districts.

In The Ukrainian Future Classroom Lab students of schools participate in workshops and master classes, attend lectures on STEM or hold Skype meetings with students from other cities. We also use this space for STEAM, ICT or robotics lessons to develop the soft and digital skills of the students. The class is equipped with computers, 3D-printer, Arduino, interactive board, tablets, augmented reality panels, Lego Mindstorm and Robotics kits. The Ukrainian Future Classroom Lab - Lviv STEM Center is established following the principles below:

- Specially equipped space for four areas of training (robotics, 3D-Art, programming, space for the maker)

- Collaboration of faculty members and students

- Innovative teaching methods

- Openness and feedback

Our main goal is the introduction of STEM education and developing the creativity of the students. It can be realized through the following stages: teaching robotics, design and creative thinking, giving new opportunities to future entrepreneurs, scientists, inventors. In addition, combining the theory and practice, creating a platform for the discovery of the creative potential of our children, encouraging our young people to project the future and communicating with other young inventors from all around the world.
