Through a small experiment in which a simple paper plate becomes a catcher of polluted air particles, also built by the students, we were able to prove that the air we breathe is not just “clean” air. It is more but it is not seen.
As a solution to help minimize air pollution, we design and build small gardens that can be built in any location, rural or urban.

In recent years, pollution,threatening the environment have been accepted as global problems. With the awareness of the dangers that threaten the environment,countries have assumed responsibilities regarding the environment.To raise awareness of our students about environmental pollution, chemical waste, climate changes, recycling and to participate in sustainable life,the students design their own clothes for Fashion Show from waste materials to create awareness on reuse reduce and recycle .
Introduction What are the environmental problems in the world, why we should protect our environment, what should we do to make world a better place? To achieve this, relevant information can be found on the European Commission web page: https://biodiversity.europa.eu/news/Latest_environmental_signals_highlight_Europes_public_policy_challenge_ This way, students confront topics of environmental problems and solutions. 1. Doing a preliminary study on students’ knowledge using a quiz platform such as Kahoot 2. Watch the movie ‘’2040’’
3. Share additional information on topics of Reuse,Reduce,Recycle issues:
Within the Skype a Scientist initiative promoted by Scientix EU, we met Federica Beduini P.h.D. who showed us the multiple applications of graphene on April 30, 2021 in a streaming event organized by our scientific high school, Liceo Scientifico di Stato Calini in Brescia (Italy).
The meeting was part of the “Journey into Modern Physics”, in the path of Art & Science and following one of the learning scenarios present in STE(A)MIT – AN INTERDISCIPLINARY STEM APPROACH CONNECTED: Graphene – miraculous 21st Century Material
This Institute is dedicated to research in photonics, the science and technology related to light. Since light is a versatile tool that is both precise and delicate, it allows to study and create new technologies in different fields: health, information and energy. For this, we spoke with Federica Beduini P.h.D. about the following themes:
photonics and applications in the field of energy and environmental care
photonics and health applications
photonics and applications in the field of information
V rámci projektov eTwinning som realizoval aktivity – písanie ekologických príbehov so svojimi žiakmi – tínedžermi. Pred vlastnými aktivitami sme vytvorili veľa myšlienkových máp pre zlepšenie slovnej zásoby týkajúcej sa environmentálnej angličtiny. Hrali združovacie hry, robili základné kroky svojich príbehov, tvorili obrazové slovníky, slogany atď. Žiaci písali tieto príbehy ako komiksy, rozprávky atď. Vyjadrili svoje vlastné názory, svoju tvorivosť, každý z výrobkov žiakov bol jedinečný. Niektoré príbehy boli jednoduchšie – kratšie, niektoré boli bohato „vyrozprávané“. Žiaci často písali o prírode, o znečistení vody a ovzdušia, o ohrozených druhoch zvierat.

Before writing stories, we read some texts in Students ‘book Project about rubbish, about climate changes, animals and about extreme weather. “The magazine Hello” was the good inspiration for teenagers, too. We have watched some videos on you tube recorded with world´s celebrities: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwV9OYeGN88 Nature is speaking , water, Penelope Cruz, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmVLcj-XKnM Julia Roberts- Mother nature,
