The students of Recklinghausen visit the Insula College in Dordrecht from Monday 6th – Friday 10th of February 2017.
Goals of this exchange:
Language experience for both groups (German students learning Dutch and Dutch students learning German)
Increase interest in science
Activate interest in science in younger pupils (10-11 year olds; group 7 of the Dutch school system)
Students work in units of 4 (2 Dutch and 2 German students), total of 10 units. All the students visit Futureland on Tuesday. On Wednesday they work on a pitch for the younger pupils. On Thursday they will present the outcome of their work.
The younger pupils each receive a fiche; at the end of the pitches they can put their fiche in the collector of the Unit they liked the most. The Unit with the most fiches wins a price (and eternal fame!).
Extra task: the Units have to make the blank collector they receive on Wednesday morning recognizable for the pupils!
Arrival of the students: members of units are already known!
Evening: introduction and video (10 min.), followed by a short period to gather information about the Rotterdam harbours
Using a Kahoot quiz, every unit can get points. The winner can first choose a subject for their pitch, than the second, etcetera.
