The ECoS project aims to offer a fun game-based learning tool which teaches coding, encourages interest in STEM, while also teaching regional history and culture. The idea is to let students explore a regional map and reveal locations on the map if they have managed to travel there through the application of code.
Coding tasks will gradually increase in difficulty and introduce more and more concepts as the students advance in their knowledge of coding. Revealing more and more locations on the map is a gamified reward and students can compare the locations they discovered. However, the locations will also contain interactive content (such as interactive videos and quizzes) which let the students learn about their region and discover important locations, culture and history.

EB1/PE Cruz de Carvalho is primary school with preschool and kindergarten, located in the heart of Funchal (The bigger city in Madeira Island). It´s located on the western side of the city in the middle of the Hospital neighborhood. The educational system in Madeira Island is a little different from Portugal mainland. Most of public schools have classes divided. First and second year students (kids with 6-8 years old) have curriculum classes in the morning and third and fourth years (students from 8-10 years old) have curriculum classes in the afternoon. In the opposite schedule of the curriculum classes they have extra curriculum activities. Once a week we are developing a project in the extra-curricular schedule that let the students choose between 4/5 activities (can be something like exploring the city, do healthy food, make paper and etc…) The students are not organized by classes instead they are divided by what they want to do.
