For which objectives? • To create during the European Science and Technology Week 2003 a combination of events • To make pupils familiar with science and technology • To design and diffuse pedagogic tools and methods to increase awareness of science and technology
How and When ? Two stages: • Preparatory stage: preparation of various tools and instruments on the basis of scenarios • Operation stage (Sept-Nov 2003): several thematic workshops in intermediate classes + final exhibition + final seminar
Which Contents ? 4 thematic workshops : • Beyond Objects • Intelligent Home • Domestic Automatism • Future Home
Aim of the Workshops? • Study of the changes of the electrodomestic universe which took place during the 19th and 20th centuries • Wording of new proposals concerning: • The management of the habitable space • New functions and services • Objects and system of objects • New uses • Hybrid productions
Workshops Operation • 5 to 10 sessions for each class involved in the project. • A moderator + the teacher will organise work in each class according to a scenario developed during the preparatory stage. • On the basis of narratives, pupils will produce several elements (objects, texts, videos, etc.)to be presented during the final exhibition.
