Midterm Meeting in Riga, September 2018

Half-time!

The two-year Erasmus project of the Wieland-Gymnasium "Exreco" (explore, research, communicate), promoting young scientists at the Gymnasium, enters the second round. Our school is the initiator and organizer of this European project, for which the partnership of four other European schools could be won: "Foss videregående skole" in Oslo, "Rīgas Valsts 3. ģimnāzija" in Riga, "I Liceum Ognolnoksztalcace im. Jana Kasprowicza" in Schweidnitz and the "Liceo gimnasio statale Guiseppe Cevolani" in Cento participate. After the first meeting of the leading teachers of all five schools in September 2017 in Biberach, there were two working meetings with school groups in the Italian Cento and in Schweidnitz, Poland, at which two schools each sent a group of eight selected students to a third school.

From the 23rd to the 29th September 2018, the mid-term project meeting of the responsible teachers of the project took place in Riga. From the Wieland-Gymnasium, Ms. Semrau (organization and overall management) and Ms. Bernlöhr (head of the natural sciences) took part at the event. The purpos of the meetig was to communicate the activities taken in each school, to coordinate the further method and to prepare the upcoming activities. Furthermore, the profiles of the Latvian School and their working methods in the field of science were presented, as well as the educational partners (library, university and energy efficiency center) visited and illustrated with concrete examples with groups of students, how our Latvian partner school introduces their students to the university working methods and how they promote the attractiveness of a science-oriented career.

Of course, the hosts from Riga did not miss the opportunity to present their school and city to the guests of the European partner schools - a task that was not difficult for the quality and attractiveness of the localities and left a lasting impression on all participants.
