The second short time mobility in Lithuania from 6th till 12th November 2016
The meeting of the project partners took place at Eitminiškės Gymnasium. During the five working days 7th November 11th November the following activities took place:
- Work meetings:
- Students from every country presented info graphics “Biofuel in my country”, which they had prepared at their schools.
- Project partners discussed Module 3 “Bioenergy”, prepared by Lithuanian team. Every country presented their experience of implementing this module, indicated the difficulties they had encountered and the parts of the module that should be changed.
- Participants of the project analysed Module 4 “Agriculture” created by Italian partners. Every partner presented the activities they completed while testing the module, provided their comments on the structure and the parts of the module, and discussed how the materials of the module could be improved.
- Partners discussed all activities that will have to be completed according to the plan of the project; talked over the date and details of the meeting in Italy.
- Introducing the use of biofuels in Lithuania.
- The participants of the project and students from the Gymnasium travelled to Lakaja Forestry District (Labanoras ward, Švenčionys distr. mun.), where they observed the process of biofuel production, i.e. they learned what type of wood is used for production of biofuel, its daily amount, what companies the biofuel is provided to, and the cost of service.
- Project partners travelled to two power plant companies, which provide heating. These boiler stations use biofuel to provide hot water and heating. The participants saw how woodchips turn into heating and hot water, learned the amount of heat produced by these boiler stations, the benefit of the use of biofuel for the country, residents and the environment.
- Educational activities for students and teachers at the Gymnasium:
- “What water are we drinking?” – the participants of the project studied water as a resource. They examined its composition, suitability or unsuitability for consumption, and the amount of nitrates and nitrites in it.
- “Clay workshop” – participants of the project worked with clay, one of Lithuanian resources. They were able to observe how clay changes its form.
- “Nature” – students worked with another Lithuanian resource – wood, i.e. drew plants and animals on wood.
