      • A year long project about the cosmos . (geography fifth grade ; natural science in the fourth grade)
      • Three languages were used during the project: Slovak, Czech and English, and pupils created an English-Slovak-Czech dictionary of space vocabulary.
      • The project involved art with students drawing pictures of space objects and Martians and physical training with pupils simulating cosmonaut training in the school gym.
      • Night – sleeping in the schools with observation of the eclipse of the moon with an astronomic telescope.
      • Partner discussion by videoconference and comparison of results of the observation. Results published in a blog . followed by presentations of the results in front of the whole group and then to the partner school.
      • At the end of the project both schools together visited the seat of the UN in Vienna.
      SCIENCE & MATHS projects winners and runners up The space in the school, the school in the space A short summary
      • The real strong point of the project is the collaboration of pupils and teachers working together in a homogeneous team.
      • Project teaching was a new approach for the school partners and so this project was an innovation in itself.
      • The most important thing about the cooperation was, that all activities were organized, realised and shared between the partner schools and the class teacher cooperates with the ICT school coordinator.
      • The project featured a wide variety of different and stimulating activities (such as videoconference, blog, drawing of Martians and 3D models of planets and a visit to the UN seat in Vienna where pupils visited an exhibition on the cosmos and space travel.

      • Pupils become fictional astronauts and find out not only about various secrets of Space but also about themselves .
      • Pupils realised the importance of working in a team, through this partnership their friendship deepened, but also the relations between the teachers and pupils became stronger and closer .
      • The creative use of ICT to communicate and to work . Pupils used presentation programs, word processors, searched for information on the Internet, published results on the ET Twinspace and a blog with the help of the teacher.
