Observational Research Impacts On Natural Science
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015, Date de fin: 31 août 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Six European schools are willing to bring their youth to broaden their minds into the amazing world of Science. We teachers have faith in this project which is designed to enable our students to encounter the pleasure of knowing more about our Universe and better understand our environment, as well as acquiring key skills that help making one successful in an ever changing world. Five of those skills are targeted here: Maths and Science skills, Foreign Languages, Using OER sources,Digital skills as well as Social and civic qualities. By focusing on the study of elementary particles, partners will have the possibility to learn much about the Universe : e-particles provide clues to past from which certain conclusions can be drawn and predictions can be made. Coached by 40 physics, French, history ,art, Science, Maths and English teachers, 230 students will embark on a worldwide journey to make experiments on their own, analyse and criticize their results, solve the problems encountered and devise new experiments to go into Science in depth. Participants will use mathematical theorem in everyday life, observe auroras, the Sun, sunspots and will make radiation measurements. They will benefit from the expertise of research centers to guarantee the access to efficient and reliable instruments for measurements as well as a high quality knowledge and guidance provided by scientists.We believe that apprehending such a topic by melting Students & Scientists experiments, analysing figures together and confronting results to theory enhances the attractivity of the world of Science viewed by boys and girls all together. Partners will collaborate through web 2.0 tools, software and apps to share their acquisition of science knowledge. The language of communication will be English. Meanwhile, they will get initiated to the basics and scientific words from their peers' mother tongues so as to gain awareness of the richness of the countries that form Europe. Their findings will be uploaded to a common Wikispace, that will offer a variety of material that make the project accessible to all and attractive (videos, photos, reports, forums, ...). They will develop digital tools (appliance, spreadsheet programs) to increase their efficiency in analysing results and communicating them. They will highlight the ERASMUS+ program thanks to exhibitions and festivals. This project will help pupils improve their skills in Science, in ICT and in Foreign languages. It will also enhance transversal skills and endow students with a greater awareness of European citizenship. Teachers will have a chance to share various practices and to acquire expertise in the new ERASMUS+ program. This will help them with accompanying other teachers and schools who wish to broaden their teaching methods through European Partnerships. Schools will improve their image by enriching their curriculum and educational offer. Cooperation with research centers to promote Science is one of the levers of this enrichment. We cannot deny the decline of interest in Science, although it is granted that economic competitiveness is strongly linked to innovation stemming from scientific research. Scientists will have a great opportunity to convince pupils of the gratification and empowerment that scientific research can provide. In way of conclusion, we believe that the publication of the results and reports of events will make the general public more acutely aware of what Europe stands for and does and how people coming from very distinct places in the world can cooperate to develop projects that reach across boundaries.
