The main goal of the project is to popularize natural sciences and technical sciences among children and young people. Through the implementation of the project we want to show that seemingly boring content from mathematical, physical or chemical classes can be used to create interesting subjects when they are translated into practice. We notice a lack of motivation and willingness to learn science among our peers and younger siblings. For us, modern technologies and science are hobbies, passions, and for others, ideas for working life. We want to take up the challenge of creating a mini- cultural event, the centre of which will be an artistic installation created by us. Thanks to this, we will simultaneously increase our own technical and digital skills.

Activities

The participants of the project will be school pupils and students of technical and natural sciences and lovers of natural and technical sciences.

Impact

The result of the project will be an interactive scientific and artistic installation created by the participants of the project. Its first presentation will take place during the last day of the exchange. The presentation will be accompanied by a happening and mini workshops such as make and take, using technical skills. Then, after returning to their countries, each group will prepare a similar event for their own local community.
