November 2015- Kromer’s project activities
- In November 2015 signposts to our Erasmus+ partner cities were installed in the playground of our school. The signposts are in national colours of the countries, and they give information on the distance between our town and our partners.
- In the afternoon of 3rd November, a group of students from Kromer school went on a field trip to Radocyna, a small village near Gorlice. The aim of the trip was to develop astronomical knowledge and carry out observations. The weather was good for observations- the sky was clear. The teachers and students spaced telescopes out. At first, they observed the Milky Way. The Galaxy was well-lit and clearly visible. Then they watched the Taurids, which appeared in the atmosphere every now and again. The students observed interesting objects in the sky, like Aldebaran (the brightest star in the constellation of Taurus) or Andromeda Galaxy (also known as M31). They were able to see the Pleiades. It was possible to observe them with the naked eye, but the Pleiades impressed most when seen with binoculars or telescopes.The students also counted stars with cardboard tubes and they conducted an electronic research with Sky Quality Meter-L. At about 9 p.m. the group dismantled the telescopes and went back home.
- In November 2015, our students took part in the international educational programme called Sally Ride EarthKam. It is a NASA education program that enables students, teachers, and the public all over the world to learn about Earth from the perspective of space. Our students took photos of our planet from International Space Station. Their photos were presented at our 1st Transnational Erasmus+ Meeting in Sentjur and took part in a contest. The jury, consisting of representatives of all partner schools chose the best photos and the winners of the contest turned out to be Bartłomiej Gurba (with the photo of Himalaya Mountains and Natalia Gwóźdź (the photo of Australia)
- Also, between 24th and 30th November 2015 we took part in the 1st Transnational Meeting of Partner Schools within Erasmus+ Programme. It was organized by Franjo Malgaj Primary School in Šentjur, Slovenia. The organizers prepared a very intensive programme which included activities in the fields of astronomy, arts, culture and history of the region.
