Project Results

The project will create tools and resources that will be able to be used by everyone involved in the education of deaf children



The project will complete a transnational study for the current methodologies of teaching STEM in deaf education and the needs of teachers and deaf students.

The study will be a review of existing STEM-related signs/concepts in selected European Sign Languages, of the existing methodologies in STEM classrooms and will collect experiences in STEM-related Deaf Education. The study will be the basis of the next results and will be open access.

Innovative methodology

Based on the study, a new tailor-made methodology for teaching STEM in deaf education will be created in the form of Bilingual handbook– ‘STEM Methodologies in Sign Languages’.

  1. Introduction to STEM in deaf education
  2. The spectrum of Deaf backgrounds of students
  3. The current STEM environment on deaf education
  4. The accessibility capabilities and the significance of the use of technology
  5. The balanced bilingual educational and interpreting strategies – STEM concepts using signed and written texts
  6. Resource bank with learning activities to introduce main STEM concepts in deaf education.


On-line platform

The online Platform will contain a visual STEM glossaries in in six European Sign Languages and in their accompanying project’s written languages (German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and Greek) as well as in English along with other resources like introductory videos about the significance of STEM education and how to how the platform can be used for the benefit of the education of deaf children.


Real-life STEM projects co-created by Deaf students and teachers/ Sign Language interpreters. They will be tools for collaboration between deaf students and teachers/sign language interpreters with the aid of the online platform and the lexicon. STEM kits will be developed for teaching and learning activities in the STEM classroom.

All results will be posted gradually as soon as they are completed on this page.
