About this STEM integrated learning scenario
This learning scenario about environment focuses on the topic of pollution. When implemented in the class, this lesson will allow students to study the consequences of pollution on the environment and consequently on our lives. Students will also reflect on possible solutions. They will discuss and reflect on everyday issues and habits to adopt, such as recycling, and students will be asked to look for information online. Besides, they will be able to contextualize the problem and examine it from an interdisciplinary angle as they will take part into activities that include statistics, reading, creating graphs and represent information with drawings and posters using various artistic techniques. Lastly, the robotics activities will improve the students’ design and programming skills and make them think about how modern technology can help men in real problems.
