How can you produce Oxygen faster to make Mars habitable?

Our planet is reaching an increasingly critical point, noting that the prevailing logic of steady consumption cannot be maintained. Their impacts on the global ecological level have already been verified. Colonizing other planets is just a matter of time (and money) ... to be able to visit other planets, colonize their lands and exploit their natural resources. The schools invite an element of an organization related to the planetarium or an astronomy center to discuss this subject. The students who will be debating with the guests should consider how we can ‘control habitability on other planets?’ Students will explore the factors that influence the speed of chemical reactions through experimental laboratory activities.

Talking to Medicinal Plants

In the last years, the naturist medicine has grown. The people prefer to use medicinal plants to prepare the tea, to make tinctures, also the herbal medicines. Through this project, the students imagine that they are a group of people from the local community who want to run a campaign in order to raise awareness about the importance of the cultivation of the medicinal plants and their effects on people's health. They will prepare an exhibition of dried medicinal plants presented in little bags and tinctures made from these plants presented in bottles or vials. All these will be presented to the other members of the community and interested companies. They will also prepare a small brochure, which gathers in one place all the presentations of the exposed medicinal plants.

Does a Drop of Water Make Difference in Planet Earth?

The United Nations, non-governmental organizations, researchers from various countries are concerned about the consumption of drinking water, the costs to communities, the global shortage of this resource and all the consequences it entails for the world's population. For this reason, we should discuss this issue in the school communities, inviting political or technical leaders in the area of the environment, to talk about 'Use and management of water resources in the municipal council.' A challenge will be proposed to students to create a flyer with the main tips on behaviors that reduce consumption and conserve water, saving consumers money. At the end of the project, the flyer will be presented at school, in libraries, in the City Hall and in social networks, with the aim of changing behaviors and habits of water consumption.

Let’s Go on a Trip

Most students think that all the school trips and outings are planned by teachers. However, the roles are reversed now and it’s you, the students, who will be able to plan everything and organize a trip. You should start by researching places in your country or abroad with interesting architecture and natural wonders, learning about endemic animals and plants, and eventually creating the itinerary of the trip. The final project will be the itinerary and the trip you have planned.

Impact of the Urbanization on the Environment

Being a consequence of human activity, pollution has increased due to urbanization in an alert rhythm. In Impact of the urbanization on the environment we will measure the air temperature and the amount of water through rainfall in the central urban area and in a natural surrounding ecosystem. We will also analize the diversity of biocenosis in the two studied ecosystem, the effects of urbanization on soil and natural resources, we will identify the types of pollutants and will determine the effects of urbanization on the atmosphere. We will work in teams, on the ground, we will visit specialized institution, make experiments and interpret data. The final product will be an exhibition - Tour of the gallery with drawings made during the project.

Chimeras, Mutants and Hybrids

Are you aware of genetic modifications you encounter in your everyday lives? It seems that we are living surrounded by GMOs and soon the world will be full of chimeras, hybrids and mutants. You will be assigned with a challenging task - researching the genetic structure of organisms, learning about modifications and mutations in nature, discovering the advantages and disadvantages of transgenic organisms, as well as designing a hybrid. The final project will be an online newspaper which will include information about life in a genetically-modified world.

Influence of Abiotic Factors on the Development of Living Beings

The fourth guideline. Everyone is concerned about the environment and the climate changes we have felt in our daily lives. Schools and school communities should be concerned about this issue because future citizens who graduate will be our policy makers. For this reason, we want to publish a multimedia document on the factors that influence biodiversity and the appropriate behaviors to protect the environment, especially on the abiotic factors that influence living beings. At the end of the project, a multimedia document will be presented at school, as well as in the media and social networks.

Let’s Produce Green Energy Recycling Waste!

The second teachers' guideline. Every year, many schools organize activities to promote the waste recycling. The results are not spectacular or useful; they just pull the alarm about their existence, which can harm the environment. At the same time, conventional energy costs increased and using the green energy it has become imperative. Students will study the possibility to identify and use the waste, they will learn how is produced the green energy. They learn to promote the green energy sources and to acknowledge the people and the local community about the existence of new sources of energy derived from waste recycling.

You Are What You Eat

In recent years, eating habits have changed completely. That is why in this project we want to reflect on the issue. Since vegetables are key to a healthy diet, we will mostly focus on them. At the market we can find any vegetable at any time, but in this project we will take into account those vegetables that are planted in our vegetable garden, because the healthiest vegetables in any country are the in-season ones. In YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT, we will learn when to sow, plant and harvest each vegetable. We will also learn the properties of vegetables and how to cook them.
