Project meeting Dronfield

All the participants of the project meeting arrived on 19th of March Dronfield/Great Britain and at the school we met the guest families for this week. On the first day we met in the Assembly hall of the Henry Fanshawe School to get to know each other better. The British teacher organized some funny games, for example we should sort ourselves in a row without speaking. In the afternoon we listened to the presentations of French Guiane, Malaga and Sindelfingen and we measured the circumference of the earth.

On Thursday morning we went to the nature reserve called Washlands. Formerly it was the area of a coking factory and 2005 they renatured the ground. Nowadays you can find a lot of wildlife, birds, ponts and grassland. After the walk in the nature we travelled to a bowling center for playing in international mixed groups. Later we arrived at the bee farm “Medibee” of Gloria Havenhand. Gloria produces antibacterial honey and Prof. Milton Wainwright from the University of Sheffield explained how this works and about his studies “life on earth comes from outer space”.
