  15. 15. II. FIRST EUROPEAN PILOT EXPERIENCES
  16. 16. DOIT‘s evaluation approach We develop and evaluate „DOIT actions“ A DOIT action addresses children from 6-16 years, builds upon the DOIT programme and is at least 15 hours long Diverse settings: • Span of action from 2,5 days to 4 months • 6-10, 11-16 years • in schools, outside schools • in fablabs and mobile makerspaces • Diverse topics (UN SDG) • urban/rural etc. 10 countries and 1.000 children AT, BE, DE, DK, ES, FI, HR, NL, SI, SR Skills of children Self-efficacy, creativy, teamwork and others
  17. 17. Process and result example: A personal fan Belgium pilot – in school – 10-11 years The children created a solution for hot summers in classroom
  18. 18. Process and result example: The safe stage Austria pilot –in school – 25 children – 5-10 years The children decided to address accident prevention in their school Social detective: The stage as problem! Idea sketch Prototype (already partly realised)
  19. 19. Result example: Sensor-based laundry room dehydrator Austria 8-11 years olds
  20. 20. First experiences …. self-efficacy Facilitators observed how proud children were of what they were able to do, when they presented their prototypes during the final event to the invited people. Source: DOIT partner ZSI
  21. 21. First experiences …. teamwork “They all learnt to collaborate with children of different ages - from 6 to 11 years, which is quite an age difference” (FI) Source: DOIT partner ZSI
