Service-Learning in STEM subjects
Service-learning is an approach to teaching and learning that enriches STEM education through activity-driven, real-world experiences. “Service-Learning – Learning through Civic Engagement” combines cognitive learning in school with hands-on civic engagement, teaching values alongside science and technology: By engaging in their neighborhoods or communities, students learn the social relevance of science and technology. This is followed by a classroom reflection phase in which they actively expand their system of values.
