Alterdrive Project Meeting in Poland

Between 16th and 18th October 2018, a meeting of Alterdrive project partners took place in Byalistok, Poland. The European Development Agency is one of the active participants in the project and was involved in the various steps that will lead to the creation of a new manual for secondary industrial schools about alternative fuels. A part of the meeting was an evaluation of the questionnaire conducted in the past months by head-mechanics in car services of automotive brands in all partner countries of the project.

The questionnaire led to interesting conclusions such as confirmation that students of industrial schools should be taught more intensively about alternative fuels as well as that the system lacks specialists. There is also an urgent need for the education of new mechanics as car services do not have enough educated mechanics for electric or hybrid engines. The project team received a positive feedback on their intentions and already planned further steps to proceed in the upcoming months.

Meeting of the partners of the STOP BULLYING project

A second project meeting of coordinators for all project partners took place from 8 to 10 October 2018. This time, the meeting was organized by our Italian partner from the beautiful northern Italian city of Asti. During the meeting, there was a visit to the partner natural science lyceum and several very beneficial activities directly with the students there. However, the outcome of the meeting was to set the next project timetable and to review the performance of the outputs by individual partners. At Asti, we also started preparations for the third LTTA, which will be held in Portugal in April 2019. On this occasion, Czech teachers will present to their foreign colleagues their own experience of a socially-based type of bullying based on material differences among children.

3D printing workshop for teachers at Fun@Science project

From 15th to 19th of October 2018 a 5day long workshop took place as part of the Fun@Science project. Its aim was to introduce the technology of 3D printing to European teachers and to encourage them to successfully implement it as an element of day to day teaching. The training was organized by our partners from the TUCEP organization located in a gorgeous Italian city of Perugia. As part of the event the participants were introduced the history and evolution of 3D printing methods and above all experienced the practical part of 3D printing by taking advantage of 4 printers provided by our partners. Not only did they print but at the same time all of them were given the possibility to work with the necessary software and create their own printable shapes. At the end of the meeting group educational projects were prepared by the teachers. The quality of their ideas proved the workshop worthwhile.

Participants of CREAT.Y.V. project visited Italy

At the end of September, 4 participants of our workshops went to northern Italy, where they met other workshop participants from Romania. During an all week long mobility, they had an opportunity to gain new interesting information about volunteering and volunteering activities in Italy, about the history of the region around the city of Carpi while visiting a former concentration camp, and about environmental care during a lecture in local protected landscape area. The whole programme was accompanied by a lot of interactive games and activities, during which the participants got to know each other more and found out their strengths and abilities regarding volunteering at the same time. There were also many intergenerational volunteering activities, for example, a musical lecture with elderly people suffering from Parkinson‘s disease. The whole programme was very interesting and successful and we can now look forward to other Romanian participants to visit us in Prague!
