ERASMUS+ REACH THE SKY
“Reach the Sky” is an international European project prepared and carried out by 5 schools in 5 European countries. It is approved and funded by Erasmus+, The EU programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport for 2014-2020.
The project is coordinated by I Liceum Ogólnokształcące im. Marcina Kromera, Gorlice/ Poland.
The partner schools are:
- Franjo Malgaj Primary School, Šentjur/ Slovenia,
- Liceul Teoretic „Gheorghe Lazar”, Pecica/ Romania,
- Mustafa Gürbüz Necat Bayel Anadolu Lisesi, Gaziantep/ Turkey,

Through the activities of our project we aim at encouraging young people to carry out observations and examinations of celestial objects, developing the ability to analyse and think independently and to cooperate with their peers in other European countries. We are encouraging students to learn Science subjects such as Math, Physics, Geography effectively. Students are cooperating with various scientific institutions and they are taking part in lectures and workshops. Students and teachers are improving their communication skills in English, the main language of the project.
Within the 2 years of our project we are going to :
- develop students’ interests in scientific research and natural sciences,
- improve ICT competence (using software like Stellarium, World Wide Telescope, Gloria, Microobservatory, Registax),
- carry out both individual and group astronomical and geographical observations (field orientation, looking for and recognizing the most important celestial objects, observing the Sun, the Moon and the planets, etc.),
- cooperate with research institutes, for instance ISS (EarthKam Programme), NASA,
- cooperate with the local community creating the Dark Sky place in the region,
- shape the sense of integrity with the European society,
- and many other things
