Project Summary

All the teachers involved in the project are proud to say that it has been a success. We managed to cover all the important and planned activities and succeeded in drawing students´ attention to science at a more academic level. Students got an opportunity to search for themselves in various fields. Doing field study at eco-centres gave the students hand-on experience that usually comes as an extra curricular activity providing students with new insights into the world of science and protection of the planet. Students also got an opportunity to get more knowledgeable about water management. Visiting a water treatment plant and learning about the importance of preserving water presented students with valuable understanding of water management and potential threats created by climate change. The next place that proved to be very successful was Terschelling as the whole experience supplied a great deal of knowledge of various ecosystems and fauna and flora.
Students were also confronted with the need to keep track of all the research tasks and activities in their diaries, placing entries on the project website and creating a photo album. All this demanded a combination of skills such as language, computer and also an ability to cooperate as it was all team work. To sum it all up, students were supposed to present a comprehensive overview of their work to a board of teachers and their peers and parents.
22 pupils of Gymnazium Jihlava and 22 pupils of Cygnus Gymnasium took part in project activities actively. Main project results can be seen at twinspace or project website.
