STEM week in Zadar Croatia

Day 1 of the three day STEM Discovery week workshops planned in Zadar, Croatia, kicked off today. The opening ceremony was held at the University of Zadar campus area and several biology workshops were held for teachers and students.

  1. What would nature do, and what wouldn’t it do?
  2. The role of bees in the ecosystem.
  3. Deep secrets of the ocean.

At the Osnovna škola Petra Preradovića school, the representatives of FabLab visited us and introduced to us the concepts of 3D printing. The children listened to a presentation about the history of 3D printing and then embarked on a practical Sketch-up workshop.

Tomorrow, we continue at the University with the afternoon devoted to geography, information technology and computer sciences. Of course, we continue our 3D printing adventure at our school but will also learn how to use laser cutting and thermal printing.
