Students from Prague visited a reciclyng center with their teachers Dalila Durcakova and Ivana Svagrová in Chrášťany on 23 April. The same day they also participated in the event called “Earth Day 2019“. There the students participated in some games and activities focused on the themes which are also part of our project.
From April 1 to April 3, students of Technology and Technology teachers (Montaña Rodríguez and Antonio Salas) have visited the Experimental Wind Power Station in Sotavento (Galicia, Spain).
Sotavento Galicia, S.A. was established in 1997 and promoted by the Government of Galicia. This partnership created the Sotavento Experimental Wind Farm, a unique facility that, besides having common business objectives such as projects, should make additional efforts focused on three areas: investigation, education-information and training.
Three days of enriching activities on the knowledge of this Renewable Energy (see Activities page in left side menu: Activity P3).
The Erasmus + transnational meetings provide an unparalleled opportunity for our students to enjoy a unique experience. They not only visit a European city, guided by fellow hosts of the same age, but also live with boys and girls from the 5 countries that are part of the project, with whom they share work time at the institute and leisure time.
In addition, all students who participate in these projects must present a paper in front of their classmates, and they must do so in English. It is a challenge for them, and it is very satisfying to see how they face it and how they enjoy the experience.
Our second meeting took place in Prague. It was a really good experience, where all the students talked about the use of electric cars, about the bioclimatic arquitecture, and about the different energetic policies in each country (see Activities page in left side menu: Activity P17, Activity P16, Activity P18, Activity P4 and Activity C2).
But it was not all work. We visited the 5 synagogues that make up the “Jewish Museum” of the city, we visited the castle and the Cathedral of San Vito, we enjoyed the work of Alfons Muha in the museum that bears his name, and we had the privilege of being received by the Councilman of Education of Prague in the old Town Hall of the city, located in the emblematic building that contains the famous clock tower.
Today, we have made a beautiful boat trip and finally, we have seen the Hydro Power Plant “José Mª Oriol” in Alcántara, Cáceres. A beautiful day!
Our students have showed their conclusions about Survey on Energy (Google Form), opened until November 9. We have obtained 320 responses. Thank you so much to everybody!
After analysing the totals, they have made 4 groups to obtain some important conclusions. TOTALS PRESENTATION (pdf)
Finally, our Greek partners showed the graphics with the results of each country… GRAPHICS BY COUNTRIES (pdf)
Today we have visited the Biomass Power Plant in Miajadas (Cáceres).
We have presented a study about the consumption of energy in our homes and our schools at the school library
We have observed the terms of Contracted Power (kW) and Consumed Energy (kWh) and how to use them. Also, we have seen how an Electricity bill works and we have analysed the electricity consumption in every school…
