Full STEAM ahead!
We are really happy to announce that we are in the middle of developing an exciting new product; STEAMwork! The product is a dynamic project-oriented education package based on combining the traditional STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) with the Arts.
Utilizing the Mobie Academy platform, STEAMwork uses teaching videos, hands-on materials, and illustrative instructions to participate in collaborative, enjoyable, and multidisciplinary group projects. The idea is to cultivate a love of learning among students, to challenge and inspire, and to create a holistic and beneficial way to teach and learn through digital means.
This project is a collaboration between EduEffect Finland and Experience Workshop, an educational firm based in our hometown of Jyväskylä. The goal is to make STEAM learning exciting and fun, while still maintaining effective learning and training crucial skills.
The product name brings to mind several important themes that are very important to us here at EduEffect. Steamworks were key in creating technological progress centuries ago, and you can find the word TEAM in the name as well, which mirrors the collaborative spirit of the product. Lastly, the expert Finnish pedagogical techniques used in the project show that STEAM learning really does work!
We hope to launch STEAMwork sometime during Autumn 2020. If you are interested in our product, please do not hesitate to contact us!
There’s nothing left to say really, except full STEAM ahead!
