Discovering STEAM: An Exclusive Interview with Warsaw Educators

We are excited to share an insightful interview with the dedicated teachers from
Szkoła Podstawowa z Oddziałami Dwujęzycznymi 20 im Jana Gutenberga
Fundacji Szkolnej w Warszawie. In this interview, the educators discuss their
passion for STEAM education, what a STEAM lesson looks like, and how the School

the unique advantages of STEAM-based learning and the transformative impact
it has on students.

Watch the full interview to learn more about their experiences and the innovative
approaches they are using to inspire the next generation of learners:


Physics Teacher at the School Foundation, STEAM and IBSE Expert

I have been teaching physics, chemistry and mathematics for 22 years. I am an oligophrenopedagogue, a tylfopedagogue, an occupational and pedagogical therapist, with a certified teacher’s degree. I am an expert in the IBSE method (teaching through scientific inquiry) and co-author of two publications with scenarios for working with the IBSE method during lessons in natural sciences. I use activating methods and STEAM in my teaching – my students do a lot of experiments and research, and we construct teaching aids together. I am enthusiastic about the use of didactic games in education, which I also create. For years, I have been running the Young Explorer’s Club under the auspices of the Copernicus Science Centre and co-organising Science Picnics of KMO Clubs in Warsaw


Educator, Art and IT Teacher at the School Foundation

I am a teacher of art, technology and computer science, as well as a special educator. I have been teaching at School Foundation schools for over 5
I studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and there I became fascinated with pedagogy. My greatest passion is to juxtapose it with art. Working with children and young people brings me a lot of joy; while teaching and educating my students, I also gain knowledge and fulfil myself in my interactions with them.
I try to combine different disciplines in a holistic way, to teach critical and creative thinking and to be a ‘signpost’ that shows various directions and encourages them to explore.
