StarT in primary and middle school

StarT emphasizes collaborative learning and cooperation both within the school and with other schools and local actors. StarT is not an additional obligation to a teacher’s workload, but a way to support teachers by providing them with ideas to help implement collaborative and interdisciplinary learning. 

In StarT the student projects get well-deserved visibility and thus help engage and motivate the students in their projects. 

StarT promotes the integration of other disciplines with natural sciences, mathematics and technology. Could the project at your school be, for instance, the development of a delicious but healthy meal to be served at the school canteen? The project could involve at least home economics, health education, biology and chemistry perspectives. Or perhaps the construction of a small hydroelectric power station at the nearby stream or river, in which case at least physics, mathematics, wood-work and handicraft could be involved?

Like other types of learning communities, primary and middle schools are also to submit their projects through the StarT website. Reporting is done through the online form, and instructions can be found here.
