Erasmus+ project “Let’s learn from one another!”

Erasmus+ project “Let’s learn from one another!” is meant for students 15-16 years of age. It’s a nature-sciences project that is meant to last for 3 years, during which students deepen their knowledge of biology, chemistry, physics, geography. They also participate in experiments, do lab work and create teaching materials.

There are six countries currently involved in this project: Lithuania, Hungary, Finland, Turkey, Portugal and Greece. Students from 9-10th grades are eligible. The project was founded in 2020 and is meant to end in 2023. The project Erasmus+ “Let’s learn from one another!” coordinator, in Klaipėdos Licėjus, is L. Šmaižienė.

On February 22nd, 2021 Klaipėdos Licėjus began working with virtual events for the International Erasmus+ “Let’s learn from one another!” project. During the first meeting, the International students and their teachers had the opportunity to introduce themselves, their countries, cities and schools.

On February 23rd, 25th and March 2nd, 3rd and 16th, the students took part in an innovative activity organized by Hungarian teachers – during online biology, chemistry, physics, and geography classes they observed experiments that analyzed different aspects of Lake Balaton – the levels of salinity, the permeability of the soil – as well as coffin topography and the specificities of it’s formation. We are proud of our 8th grade students who did a great job representing Klaipėdos Licėjus: B. Gusiatina, L. Kazlauskas, K. Vekteris, L. Statkevičiūtė and A. Seleznovaitė.

The first trip to “Basic and Secondary School of Idães” in Felgueiras city, Portugal, was made on January 23-29th, 2022. Klaipėda Licėjus students (Lukrecija S., Liudvikas K., Dominykas D. and Kristupas V.) acquainted themselves with machines designed to recycle plastic, visited the National treasure that is the Guimarães castle, and were educated on the system of virtual decorative gardening.

The students learnt to craft their own mini vertical garden with decorative plants, spices, herbs and tried out DNA splicing methods in vegetables. Towards the end of the event the participants deepened their knowledge in the “Educational game creation and programming” workshop and were introduced to the possibilities and potential of programming and robotics.

As the students return to school they will now have the opportunity to share their acquired knowledge and teach other students to practically apply the basics of vertical gardening.
