Artistic Reality In School educaTion: enActed, Reflective and Collaborative learning with the HUman orrery Space
Project overview and key objectives:
The ARISTARCHUS project is a collaboration among three universities and one non-profit organisation: University of Cergy – Project Coordinator (France), University of Aegean (Greece), CARDET (Cyprus) and University of Munster (Germany). The project aims at building on the Human Orrery, a 3D kinesthetic model of planetary motion in the inner solar system, to engage primary and secondary students in interdisciplinary and inclusive STEAM activities. Its specific objectives are:
● Exploration of fundamental laws of physics and concepts of mathematics in both an attractive and meaningful way.
● Development of learners’ direct and augmented experience scientific knowledge in STEAM needed to engage in the modern scientific world.
● Improvement of both the learning in an interdisciplinary STEAM context, and the well-being and social-being of the learners.
● Enhancement of the scientific process skills of learners.
