Lost in space

Azione chiave 2 – Cooperazione per l’innovazione e le buone pratiche

Il progetto

PROGETTO ERASMUS PLUS

Il nostro Istituto ha ottenuto il finanziamento per un progetto Erasmus +, LOST IN SPACE della durata di due anni (2018/19, 2019/20).

Il progetto si concentra su astronomia, scienze e matematica. Lo scopo è di migliorare le competenze linguistiche, favorendo il contatto diretto tra individui di differenti nazionalità. Gli obiettivi del progetto sono di aiutare a promuovere o consolidare l’interesse degli studenti e la partecipazione alle materie STEM. L’astronomia sarà l’affascinante veicolo per il raggiungimento di tale obiettivo. I paesi partecipanti al progetto sono: Inghilterra, Spagna, Francia, Croazia, Grecia e Italia. Alcuni nostri insegnanti si recheranno in Grecia (Atene), Francia( Montpellier) e Croazia (Parenzo) a Denia (Spagna) e in Inghilterra a Barnard Castle.

E Twinning It was agreed that we should try and ensure all students are registered on E Twinning, so they can interact before and after meetings.

LOGO COMPETITION RULES

Each school would submit 1 Logo. The decision as to which Logo to Submitis up to Individual schools

The Format of the Logo is at the discretion of the creator. It could be computer generated or traditional artwork. As long as it is original.

The Logo should be finished by December 7th and the voting will take place on December 14th

The finalists will have their logo saved in a gallery. Schools can not vote for their own Logo, but will award a mark between 1 and 5 (5 for their favourite….1 for their least favourite) the Logo with the most marks being chosen. (1 school …1 Vote)   the voting formw ill be uploaded in google docs

There was a suggestion that some collaborative task should be initiated as a starter activity. If possible a skype challenge could allow students to meet each other on a face to face basis. Rules for the Skype challenge are covered below. It was felt though that some partners would struggle to participate but all partners were to consider some collaborative task.

The project is an inter generational project and we agreed to extend participation in the project not just toolder audience, but to include younger students. The twin space should include 5 year olds as well even if they are not involved in the Erasmus partnership.

Juan de Comenius, IC Centro Storico Moncalieri and Paidos would include a section for 4 and 5 year olds

MEETINGS

The Italian School are currently not scheduled to host a meeting. The reasons for this are well known in the partnerships and the Italian partners are entirely blameless. However, they are now, not only able to host but very eager to do so. IK has contacted the NA to investigate whether it is possible to ensure a meeting in Italy.

Meeting Dates

Meeting 1 Greece 18th March to 22nd March 2019

Meeting 2 France 13th May to 17th May 2019

Meeting 3 Croatia 30th Sept to 4th October 2019

WHAT TO DO

Meeting 1 Students will present their school for 5 minutes

Students will deliver a presentation on an astronomer or scientist from their own country.

NOTE the presentation does not need to be a ppt , it could be presented via a song, or a play or a film. Language is not restricted to English, but do ensure that whatever language you use..it is accessible to all students.

Although Science and astronomy were to underpin all meetings, students must have the opportunity to meet each other on a social basis.

All partners agreed that how we select the students should be left to the professional judgement of the partners, but we should consider behaviour.

Host schools were responsible for ensuring the host families were safe.

Prior to visits , host schools should prepare a budget which is shared to partners to make it clear what they would spend.

DISSEMINATION

All partners were invited to participate in Joomag for the creation of magazines

The croatian partners would look after app inventor tocreate an app to display outputs

The Greek and French partners would help manage the twin space

The British partner would create a web site

The Spanish partner would manage the google drive

TRAINING MATERIALS

A bit of basic astronomy & deep sky photography             Roger Pittock, 9th November 2018

FACTS & DEFINITIONS

Stellar and solar motion

Magnitude – the brightness of our sky

What is deep sky? An example

 

Solar and stellar motion

Sun circles E-W (ecliptic)            Exactly 1 rev in 24 h – our day.

Polaris “doesn’t move”.                  Stars – and deep sky objects encircle Polaris

Approx 1 rev in 23h 56 min

Gain of 4 min per day               2 hours per month                ½ day per six months              Back to square one each year

Facts & Definitions

Stellar and solar motion

Magnitude – the brightness of our sky

Magnitude

Magnitude is a logarithmic scale of brightness. Five magnitudes represents a factor of 100. Each magnitude is a factor of approx 2.512

Increasing number represents reducing brightness.   Reference is Vega – magnitude zero.   Magnitude takes area into account

What do we mean by “Deep sky”?

Orion nebula.  Naked eye.  Binoculars.Telescope. Photo through telescope
