Our Portuguese Partner Escola Gonçalves Zarco informed us that our project featured on Portuguese TV! A television channel made a reportage about our meeting on Madeira Island and promoted our project. If you want to see the video follow that link.
On November 2018 we had our 3rd meeting in Madeira. Students and Teachers had the opportunity to work in teams and present their first year’s experiences and then focus on challenges to address in the future. We all agreed that we need a strategic approach to making open science schooling a reality in school education.
The partnership had also to prepare status and plans until next transnational event, especially how we plan to work with the demanding phase 5 of our project. Finally we discussed project management and communication issues.
Open Science Schooling partners met for the second time during the project lifespan in Berga, Catalonia. The partners had a fruitful meeting to discuss how to fine-tune the project’s next phases which will be determinant for the final outcomes.
The consortium also had the chance to be engaged in Open Schooling activities and to prepare the next meeting in Madeira.
Don’t forget to visit our Polish partner’s blog on Open Science Schooling where students and teachers are uploading their material. It is a great chance to witness how Open Schooling program evolves and what kind of activities you can use to engage your students.
On December 2017 was held in Joensuu Finland, the kick-off meeting of Erasmus+ European project: «Fostering Re-engagement in Science , Learning through Open Science Schooling» which will last for two and a half years.
This project, involving partners from Finland, Catalonia, Romania, Poland, Greece, Portugal, Lithuania and Israel is funded by the European Commission within the Erasmus + KA2, Cooperation for Innovation and Good Practice Exchange program and aims to engage students in REAL-LIFE science challenges in the society and also engage schools and students in practical science collaboration with resources in the community, including research, science, innovation and social resources and stakeholders. Through this project the consortium aims to provide the students with the opportunity and resources to develop a different image of what science is and what science could be for them, linking in much more narrative ways to the identity and personality of the young students.
