Objective 

RM@Schools 3.0 promotes a wide dissemination action on RM-related themes in Schools and Society through strategic European partnerships among Research, School, and Industry. Students 10-19 years old will become RM Ambassadors to a wider community, since they will be involved in experiments with RM-related hands-on educational kits, excursions in industries, and science dissemination by using both their native and the English language.

The solution (technology)

RM@School 3.0 is a Wider Society Learning project, focused on an innovative program to make science education and careers in RM attractive for youngster. An active learning will be proposed to schools by RM Ambassadors (experts in some RM-related issues and trained teachers) by involving students in experiments with RM-related hands-on educational kits, in excursions in industries, and in science dissemination activities. The students will be asked to become Young RM Ambassadors themselves (science communicators) and to create dissemination products focused on issues related to RM (i.e. videos, cards, comics, etc), by using their native language (student age: 10-13 yrs) or both their native and the English language (student age: 14-19 yrs). Local Competitions for awarding the best communication products as well as an annual European Conference with delegates from European schools (students and teachers) will be annually organized. In addition, teachers will be trained to become RM Ambassadors themselves in the future at school, and selected groups of students will be trained on digital competence and video making and/or on activities suitable to be proposed during Public Events in order to work together with RM Ambassadors. All the produced materials and the best communication materials realised by pupils will be accessible online on the website of the project to be shared with a wider public.
