This Works! Technology Project for 1st Graders

This works! is a technology education project for all first graders all around the world. Intended for first graders to use over a seven-week period of time, the materials focus on two aspects: technology skills and tranversal competence (21st century skills). Technology Industries of Finland wants to engage and activate students, and enable them to create and engineer their own machines from recycled materials. At the same time, they will also examine the world through a mathematical framework. The students can gain insights into what they could be when they grow up, and how technology can change the world. Technology Industries of Finland is offering the This works! concept – complete with materials – to all first graders free of charge.
