The Erasmus+ Europlay grant was a two-year long project with the aim of designing four ‘Euro’ playgrounds that are bound together with the common goal of promoting opportunities for children to plan, learn and play within the contexts of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics for and in their recreation times.
It was student-led project, so each phase of the project was developed around the students, their ideas and the student exchange outcomes. There were four student exchanges. Each exchange was dedicated to one of four project steps; research, data assessment, model concept/design and finally an implementation/action plan. Select students from grades 4 and 5 participated as our “creative architects” from ISS and our three partner schools in the UK, Poland and Italy.
