On April 17, 2019, the students of the 8th grade participated in the “Open Days” at Technological High School Nr. 1, Luduş. Students had the opportunity to find out about the material basis and the high school education offer.
On this occasion, we organized meetings with students and teachers, visits to training rooms, laboratories, sports hall, etc.
They attended demonstrative lessons which highlighted the students’ and teachers’ involvement in school activities.
They also had the opportunity to ask questions about the subjects characteristic for each profile and the possibilities of continuing the studies in the same field.
At the end of the tour the students thanked to the hosts for their warm welcome.
After these activities, the students participated in a discussion with their teachers and peers based on the following questions:
- Do you want to go to college? Why or why not?
- What would you like to learn in college?
- What college do you want to attend?
- What do you need to do to be sure you go to college?
- How can you prepare for college and your career now?
- What do like/not like so far about the school visit?
Then, the students divided into teams will make posters about possible occupations which a person can have if they study a STEM discipline (who are they and what they do, job duties, conditions in which their activities take place, instruments/equipment used, the necessary skills etc.). These posters will be presented to their colleagues and will be published on a blog dedicated to the STEM Discovery Week.
