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 open not only to the school's students and teachers, but also to the teachers and students of other schools in our district.
In The Ukrainian Future Classroom Lab, students of various 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 Lab 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 was 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 goals are the introduction of STEM education and the development of our students' creativity. This vision can be realized through the following steps: teaching robotics, design, creative thinking; and 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 communicate with other young inventors from all around the world.
Our Ukrainian FCL "Lviv STEM Center" was funded by the Crowdfunding platform for educational projects GoFundEd and supported by the city's authorities and the top managers of Lviv's IT companies. In the future, we plan to expand the learning space and we are looking for partners and investors. We dream of equipping the class with modern and flexible furniture and innovative and meaningful technologies.
