On 10 August 2023, the University of Malta team conducted a workshop for Higher Education Students. Led by EU Project Officer Simeona Sevdalinova and Science Communication Office Director Dr. Edward Duca, the session underlined the importance of integrating STEAM education and creativity into science education.

Utilizing the CREATIONS pedagogy, the team transformed existing STEM activities, focusing on constellations and mythologies, into dynamic STEAM experiences. This approach aimed to foster interdisciplinary thinking and enhance students’ interest in both STEM and arts subjects. During the workshop, these activities served as a foundation for the creation of additional exercises. Participants learned about constellations and basic astronomy concepts through storytelling and other creative avenues.

Through collaborative efforts and co-creation, the participants successfully converted a STEM activity into a STEAM endeavor. The resulting STEAM workshop was showcased at the Science in the City Festival in Malta on 29 and 30 September, reaching an audience of over 1000 people and effectively bridging the gap between science and the arts.
