As part of this exchange of students, we combined activities in textile and construction workshops with QR codes. These were the vocations that the students taught in the Romanian school.
The Romanian students initiated activity in the school garden and under the slogan
We Collect and Recycle they invited the students from the partner countries of the project to collect in recyclable materials such as textiles, paper, plastic products. Students provided this activity and work hardly to finish their task. After the work was finished, the students took their products to their homes to share with the others.
Day 2 and 3
Students dress in national dresses and modern outfits made from recyclable materials, paper, plastic or recyclable cloth. Each product made contained a QR code containing information about the type of material used, the way in which it was made. Basically, they found all the information from the beginning to the end of the exposed product. A trip is organized in Tulcea-Danube Delta, a close town to Brăila where we visited the centre of a protected area to see the nature of its own beauty.
The 4th day
Students worked on their projects. Draw or edit photos taken the previous day, another trip is organized to Constanta, a maritime city where students visited the nature reserve and see the natural environment in which animals live although they live in the middle of the city. Students recorded interviews, wrote facts and comments, generated QR codes.
