StarT invites schools, kindergartens, extracurricular activity groups, and families, as well as other interested institutions and groups, including the media, to join us in sharing the joy of collaborative learning!
In the international StarT, learning communities get support, recognition and awards for carrying out interdisciplinary, collaborative project-based learning.
The international StarT competition has two categories:
- Projects by children and youngsters (3-18 y.o.)
- Best educational practicesby educators (teachers, instructors, parents…)
Everyone can participate annually by reporting their work in the form of short videos and concise learning diaries. Only requirement is a link to science, technology or mathematics and to one of the seven StarT themes.
In the assessment criteria students’ active role, collaboration and interdisciplinary are emphasized.
The StarT program includes also StarT events (StarT-Days, StarT-Fests and the International LUMA StarT Gala), a virtual science club, and cooperation with StarT ambassadors, corporations and universities.
In StarT, every child and youth can be a Star through Teamwork – welcome along!
