The school has participated into several Comenius, Erasmus+ and Nordplus Junior international projects.
- Cooperatie Devlab, The Netherlands
DevLab participates in the Erasmus project “How to raise an inventor” in which 4 countries collaborate. Project goal is to create and test tools which stimulate the introduction of technology in the primary and secondary school system. DevLab’s role is to create 12 lessons based on programming and creation, making use of the micro:bit platform. The lessons are currently under development, and will be tested on the school De Haren in ’s-Hertogenbosch. In parallel to that we have invited schools to participate in a giant ‘maker’ project, to engage them into programming in combination with making. 23 schools are participating and currently preparing 975 micro:bit based maker projects in total.
