The project will produce the following tools:
Methodology manual “CREAM Fast Brand Manual” with toolkits: it is a methodological guide for professionals working in formal, non-formal and informal education and it is composed by a range of tools to promote interest in STEM disciplines in schools meeting the need to have new tools to adopt facing a context that is in continuous change, where ICT, digital innovation and environmental sustainability concepts are always more important and skills are required both in daily-life both in the professional sector. The methodology is largely focused on STEAM concepts learning developed in European Countries.
CREAM Creative Writing Laboratories models: innovative models to be spread at local, national and EU level, in schools and STEAM centers, to stimulate interest and train professionals in STEM disciplines through ARTS (STEAM), based on Open Schooling concept and using Co-design, Creativity and critical thinking methodologies.
Policy brief for policy makers: policy brief for policy makers at local and EU level to support the replication of the CREAM CWLs model.

The CREAM project will develop innovative educational tools thanks to the creative methodology, CREAtive writing – telling a story through strong written visuals with emotional impact (poetry, plays, movie and television, script, fiction – novels, novellas, short stories – songs, speeches, momoirs, personal essays) to teach STEAM disciplines including Accounting, Architecture, Medical Research, Environmental Studies, within the school environment;
The CREAM project will develop guidelines for professionals who deals with youngest education. The manual “CREAM Fast Brand Manual” will offer a tonkey of specific tools to provide EU professionals and the new generations with the right skills for the new cross-functional roles, with a positive impact for students carreers. Through the implementation this manual, partners will
have the opportunity to develop replicate new guidelines for to share the new STEAM approach for teaching and promote interest in STEM disciplines in schools meeting the need to have new tools and methodologies to adopt facing a context that is in continuous change, where ICT, digital innovation and environmental sustainability concepts are always more important and new skills are required both in daily-life both in the professional sector.
In this way, students will have the chance to understand the importance of STEM and orient their university studies accordingly. The manual “CREAM Fast Brand Manual” will be tested thought pilot activities in 4 European countries (Italy, Poland, Greece, Slovenia) – these pilots will be implemented in different actors such as schools, companies, social entreprises, NGOs, universities and education providers of any extent.
