The course teaches Scratch for Arduino software through a series of theoretical and practical sessions which explain programming in an inspiring and clear way. These presentations are accompanied by assignments for practicing programming and creating programs attendees would like to use. During the course participants are given a programming unit and all the necessary parts for building a different application each time. New programming blocks are taught and educators explain different ways to improve your written code. In addition, attendee-educators learn how to integrate those programming lessons in their teaching plans for both primary and secondary education classes. The course includes study visits to local private and public institutions, meetings with local professionals to exchange good practices, job shadowing experiences, and workshops for evaluating traditional educational practices and introducing new ones.
The course will help the participants appreciate the value and importance of learning a coding language and be able to write a simple program in C++ with GNU compiler. At the end of the course participants will be able to transform a physical input into a digital input and analyse it and complete a customizable full Scratch for Arduino project autonomously, from the beginning to the end. They will also be able to understand the function of electronic sensors and components, learn how to build their own led circuit as well as plan and design innovative, fun tools for education. The educational material will be provided in the form of a comprehensive guidebook including practical guidelines and procedures on how to better organize and equip your school laboratory. The guide will include a set of proposed innovative projects that attendee-educators can develop with their students.

In the northwestern part of Peloponnese, the city of Patras is the capital of the region and an important commercial port of the country. The newArchaeological Museum of Patras, the church of Saint Andrew and the Fortress of Rio are some of the attractions visitors must see, while a strollalong the Rio-Antirio Bridge is a unique experience, along with participatingat Patras carnival cultural events. There are many points of interest in this region including the Vouraikos Canyon and the rack railway, the Monastery of Agia Lavra and the Monastery of Megalo Spileo (Big Cave), the Cave of the Lakes and the Museum of Sacrifice bythe People of Kalavryta. The main attraction in popular Kalavryta is the skiresort.
If you are interested in submitting any kind Erasmus+ KA1 project proposal, we support you in preparing and submitting the application to your National Agency. We have developed a set of guidelines for the preparation of the KA1 e-form, which we provide with no additional fee. All the activities andservices are fully covered by the grant received by Erasmus+ if the project is approved.
We act as receiving organization and accept students, teachers and staff any time of the year. Courses are offered in corresponding target group format. Each course is structured so that it ispossible to attend the basic level (20 hours in 6 days) or the advanced level(40 hours in 12 days). Courses are offered starting from March to November.
