BOTSTEM will implement inquiry teaching units with a robot-based approach, including code-learning, for enhancing the education in STEM fields. Recent research have demonstrated that early techno-scientific literacy in children as young as 4 years old could improve their long-term achievement in STEM fields and raise the scientific and technological vocations, specially for girls. Competencies acquired during childhood, including design thinking, inquiry, coding and robotics, are transferable to other areas. These skills are applicable to all areas during their whole academic and labour life.
