Promoting 21st-century skills in STEAM education using Cultural Heritage

SciArt Facebook page


The SciArt project aims to develop an innovative, inclusive, inquiry-based STEAM approach to Cultural Heritage that emphasizes interdisciplinarity by combining STEM and Arts. The project will provide teachers with educational resources and the opportunity to enhance their self-efficacy in implementing STEAM activities with a strong A(rts) component. It will also offer students the opportunity to engage in meaningful STEAM activities on Cultural Heritage.


The SciArt project will develop the theoretical establishment of the SciArt approach, the SciArt activities and the resources needed to implement the approach and the SciArt training course for Primary and Secondary Education teachers. The SciArt training course will be implemented in Cyprus, Greece and Portugal with at least 60 teachers that will implement the approach in schools and hundreds of others will be informed on the approach in collaboration with the Museum partners of the consortium.


The SciArt project is going to publish methodological guidelines and the SciArt ebook which will support all the theoretical aspects of the approach. The SciArt activities and the SciArt training course hosted in an open educational platform will be offered to the public. The SciArt project will train teachers in the participating countries and disseminate the approach to the educational community within the countries and to relevant stakeholders worldwide.
