Imbedding sciences in the project


Throughout the year teachers and students are encouraged to deal with the topi violence and nature in their science lessons. The participating schools should, for organisational and curricular reasons, feel free to deal with these aspects of the project on a voluntary basis, since not all of the schools offer science lessons in the participating classes. Ideas for these scientific projects could be: genetic aspects of the gender relationship (men and women), protection of animals / violence against animals), genetic engineering, gene technology (food, health,...).The science teachers should find out about projects that would correspond to their curriculum and our project.



Ideas and plans for the second year:



Science projects are encouraged (possible topics: ecology, pollution, man’s responsibilty for the future of the earth, ...).



Ideas and plans for the third year:

historical aspects of the project


Science projects are encouraged.
