“Finally opening a real door again instead of clicking “open meeting” on ZOOM!
The pupils of the MS Pyrkergasse school were very busy at our first “physical” DigiMe workshop in the new year in the Talent Garden – with coding, getting to know IT solutions such as PEZZ® life, but above all tinkering with their own ideas .
Also present: Arkadi Jeghiazayan from Amlogy and Claudia Pach from the City of Vienna MA 01, who gave the students an insight into their very different IT jobs.”
In a cross-border exchange between the DigiMe partner schools, videos of school classes were presented and workshop offers from the other country were introduced. The program was supported by ArsElectronica, Technisches Museum Wien, Czechitas and Prototýpci.
Pupils from the Vysočina Region presented their DigiMe coding projects at an online conference! The pupils prepared presentations and shared their videos and pictures about their digital school project. They mostly worked with Lego Mindstorm, but also with a 3D printer, with micro: bits and some of them used the Arduino platform for their project. Congratulations to all the school teams for their great contributions!
The Lead partner was invited to introduce the project DigiMe at the 9th International Stakeholder Conference PA9 of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region
“A Resilient Danube Region through Digitalization, Inclusion and Education”. The Conference took place on the 17th and 18th of June 2021 with interesting discussions and presentations. Our project was presented in the Panel discussion Nr. 1 “Promotion of digital skills and competences in the Danube region”.
The conference was hosted by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine in partnership with the Federal Ministry of Labour and the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research of the Republic of Austria, the Ukrainian Institute for International Politics, L&R Social Research and OeAD– Austria’s Agency for Education and Internationalisation.
Big Thanks to the organisators of the event!
The first special workshop on CO2 and air quality took place on May 26th. Over 20 teachers from almost 20 schools programmed a CO2 measuring device specially developed for this workshop, which can also be programmed by coding beginners without any prior knowledge.
With coloured light-emitting diodes and running lights, school classes and conference rooms are informed in time when it is time to ventilate.
