'Discover and uncover with Science: Everyday and Nature Phenomena"
The exchange was organized at Johann-Heinrich-Voß-School (Eutin, Germany) on the 26th-30th September 2022. The meeting was opened by Mrs Tanja Dietrich, headmistress of Johann-Heinrich-Voß-School who expressed her appreciation and support for the Erasmus+ – project. Also, the Representative of the City Council of Eutin, Mr Dieter Holst, welcomed the participants and wished for good cooperation and success.
After this, students participated in small international groups in a guided tour of the Voß-School organised by their German partners. Later, the sttudents then took part in their first workshop (warming up to their task). In the afternoon they discovered Eutin in smaller international groups (again different from the ones in the morning to mix them) by doing the “Voß-Eutin-Rallye“ designed by A. Szellinski.
The students were involved in activities for describing and uncovering a chosen everyday or nature phenomenon, preparing a presentation and demonstrating an experiment together. They were divided into four international teams and confronted with the instructions concerning the boxes (tools, different things to inspire the teams) which had been prepared according to the decisions of the teachers reached in Budapest. The group 1 (Leonor,Nele, Kristof, Justus, Timon, Julius) dealt with Water Streams, group 2 (Charlotte, Ben, Titus, Ines, Matas, Mate) – with Resistors and Solar Panels, group 3 (Reka, Elinga, Tarja, Jan, Constantin, Joao) – with Energy, and
group 4 (Alina, Anna, Arne, Eszter, Margarida, Agniete) – with Bungee Jumping.
There were very engaging trips and excursions organised for the participants. On Wednesday the whole-day bus trip was designed around the topic of everyday natural-scientific phenomenons and started near Husum with a very special habitat, the unique mudflats (UNESCO world natural heritage), where students enjoyed a guided tour, mostly bare-footed. Then the group went on to Flensburg, where the “Phänomenta“ (an interactive science museum) was visited and the city centre was explored. The students travelled to Lübeck (UNESCO world cultural heritage) and discovered the city centre in small groups with the help of “Key Zone city games“, where you have to solve a lot of (mathematical, logical)riddles and have to be very attentive towards your surroundings.
