On February 8 at 17:00 CET, the STEM Alliance, Scientix and Intel organised the webinar "Transforming Learning for Students Through Intel Skills for Innovation Competition", where Intel SFI experts explored the resources within SFI and gave an overview of the "Educator Challenge" competition.
This competition will give educators the opportunity to explore the resources found within SFI and engage in a deep dive of one of the SFI activities with their students. Upon the completion of the activity, the educator will share the key take-aways and learning experiences from the activity as part of the competition. This sharing experience will include how this teacher will be able to use this learning experience to transform their own instruction. By the end of this experience, Intel Skills for Innovation will introduce students to innovative skills that they will be able to take with them to other classes and learn skills that they can utilize throughout their lifetime.
