    SEED – Science by Experiments through European Dialog

    Natural sciences are mainly experimental fields and their study in the class must include experimental work combined with theoretical study. These are enriching the students' knowledge, their appetite is opened for searching the answers to different questions they have about their life and the environment. For these reasons a project idea emerged among seven European schools coming from six different countries: to join the human resources in order to create an experimental booklet, containing experiments done at natural sciences, booklet which could be used at the secondary level by any European school. The central idea of the partnership is linked to the way different schools are teaching differently the same subject. Comparing the curriculum of the partner schools gives an idea what type of experiments are conducted during the Chemistry, Physics and Biology lessons. Every school has a different approach of teaching a scientific subject, illustrating it with specific experiments which are not necesarily done by other schools. This common experience of all the involved partners should be used as a base for the ellaboration of the final product– a pedagogical tool containing different visions of how a certain subject could be teached through experiments.First the experiments done in the schools are identified, are discussed by the teachers than described (in English) using an agreed layout. Grouped in three chapters the elaborated sheets will be reunited in an experimental booklet applicable by all secondary schools at their science lessons. The students are involved in the elaboration and translation phase of the sheets and they are the target group as beneficiaires of the booklet. The end product is also awailable in electronic form as a software or as a webpage containing all the teaching resources. This will give the opportunity to the science teachers to cooperate during three years. A SEED (acronym of the title) will grow to become a fruit of the partnership
