Observatoire de Haute-Provence, France, for two days, became a place where partners from three institutions gathered togethter to sum up testing phase and discuss evaluation results. Meeting took place on Januray 17-18, 2017.
The educational package is designed into a STEM / STEAM approach, combining geography, mathematics, physics and technology integrated into a social and cultural context. We investigate the geometry of geographical coordinates and how to use the related digital maps to
The climate has influenced the lives of all living beings on this planet. The appearance and development of life as we know it today is due to the climatic conditions existing over time on our planet. On the other hand,
Earthquakes have always fascinated children. The proposed package will make use of the interest that earthquakes and seismology raise among children at all ages to teach a range of basic science concepts. More than that, using real-Time data on the
There is no child who did not wonder at the permanently changing shapes of the clouds, or who was not charmed by the gentle flow of a mountain spring. The sea and the waves fascinated also many children on their
From ancient times we have observed the nature and tried to find explanations and fundamental causes for the phenomena we encounter. The Antique people thought that everything can be explained as a combination of four basic elements: earth, water, air
Thanks to this package, students will be able to answer questions regarding the influence of geomagnetism on life on planet Earth. Students will learn what the Earth’s magnetic field is, will define its sources, where the magnetic poles are and
Before leaving the house for school or work we usually wonder what to wear. These thoughts are not only due to our preferences, but most of all what awaits us outside. We pay attention to the air temperature, if sun
A package “Ultraviolet radiation – is it always an enemy?” allows to answer questions: what UV radiation is and what factors influence natural radiation from the Sun? what threats and benefits UV radiation brings to our health? how can we
Seismology is a multidisciplinary science using knowledge from other disciplines, like geology, tectonics, physic and mathematic. The biggest challenge for seismologists is to elaborate earthquakes forecasting algorithm. Forecasting earthquakes means estimate time, location and strength of earthquakes with enough accuracy.
