Encourage Young Women to Create Their Own Websites (LS-TR-223)

The main driving force in implementing this Learning Scenario is that young girls refrain from taking up education in STEM fields. One of the reasons is the lack of inspiration and role models. I hope the impact of this scenario will help to increase the number of young women studying Computer Science and STEAM related professions.

The goal of the learning scenario

Students will create a website about biographies of pioneer women who led Europe in science, society and arts. Moreover, students will practice the past tense in writing the biographies. Finally, they will create some original web content by using Europeana resources about pioneer women. 

The objectives of this learning scenario are to improve digital skills in sharing the Europeana content on the websites students create, raise awareness of women’s contributions to science (women as role models), curate Europeana content and develop reading and writing skills in English. Additionally, students identify the laws of copyright.

Introducing the learning scenario to the students
