The CASE (Creativity, Art and Science in Primary Education) consortium held its Kick-Off Meeting on 14-15 November 2017 in Stord, Norway, at the premises of the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (HVL). Representatives from the 7 partner institutions coming from 5 European countries (Norway, Ireland, Netherlands, Lithuania and Greece) gathered to discuss the overall approach of the CASE project and how its work will unfold in the next years. Detailed planning and scheduling of the project activities was initiated and also the correlation between science and arts practices in primary education was discussed while taking into account the different national educational frameworks.

Through the discussions and presentation partners got a common understanding about the main issues of the project and agreed to proceed with the already foreseen work that will lead to the main project’s results, mainly:

  • The development of Training Materials for three creative science-arts practices, namely “Learning Science Through Theatre”, “Learning Science Through Puppetry” and “Learning Science Through Digital Narratives”
  • The organisation of three Summer Schools (one each year of the project) targeted at primary school teachers, educators and artists in order to support their professional development and aid them in the implementation of  creative science-arts activities in their respective learning environments
  • The implementation of the creative science-arts cases during each school year
  • The evaluation/assessment of the pilots
