Science, technology and engineering are key competences recognised by the European Commission essential respond to the personal fulfilment, health, employability and social inclusion requirements felt today. The low indicators on science on young students, resulting from the OECD PISA 2015 survey, highlight the need to develop knowledge and competences in science. To improve these competences in young students and foment their engagement, the role of the educational staff is essential. Thus, teachers should be provided with new and innovative teaching methodologies and learning forms to respond to the changes in the school context and prepare the students for the future.
The InNature project is linked to biomimicry, an approach that defends that sustainable answers to many problems faced today were already developed by the nature. This approach defines that for many problems solutions could be found through the emulation of the nature patterns. Hence, this project aims to enhance competences and awareness on biomimicry in the School Community, including students, parents, teachers and directors and Informal Science Education Providers through the development and implementation in classroom of a set activities related to this approach and events, such as a fair about this thematic in schools.
