Spiced with the Finnish STEAM
The education system in Finland is known around the world as one of the best and most innovative.
According to the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), an internationally standardised assessment which produces information within an international frame of reference about education, learning outcomes and informal learning, Finland is in third place among the OECD countries when the scientific literacy is measured.
Even if the average score in scientific literacy in Finland has dropped by 32 score points relative to 2006 (563 score points). Finnish students are still among the best in reading literacy, and mathematical literacy has remained unchanged.
The Kitsat has its roots firmly in the Finnish education system. Not only the team is a product of the Finnish schools, the pedagogic content of the Kitsat ecosystem and preplanned missions are aligned with the Finnish way of learning.
It means not only the content, but also the spirit that makes the science and technolgy appealing for the pupils who have not thought being interested in these … and it is not only adding an A (Arts) to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
The basic values of the Finnish school system from equality to understandability are baked in the Kitsat world.
