Based on storytelling, this kit spurs children to acquire soft skills related to STEAM subjects, by playing an essential part in their social-emotional development through the storytelling of their own learning experiences.
How do we boost creativity?
Participants become the main characters of their experience day by day, by facing increasingly complex challenges. They will immediately understand their goal without even noticing and will explore different functioning processes of sensors and engines together with their group.
