In April, six teachers from Poland travelled to Iceland for the last workshops. First, they admired the breathtaking landscapes of Iceland, by visiting the Þjórsárdalur valley, Hjálparfoss waterfall and the icy Gjárfoss cascades. They also had the opportunity to observe an interesting natural phenomenon, related to the topic of the research project, which was a sandstorm. Field activities at Drangshlid, Dyrholaey, Seljalandsfoss waterfall, Skogafoss, Solheimajokull glacier and Vik covered the geography, geology and biodiversity of the region. Teachers visited Skálholt, where the foundations of their statehood were formed. This is where the almost 1,000-year history of our partner school Menntaskollin í Reykjavik began. Further training on the differences between the structure and land formations in Poland and Iceland took place along the Golden Circle route. Teachers visited Brúarhlöð, the narrow canyon of the Hvítá River, Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir – a hot spring in the geothermal area of the Haukadalur valley and Thingvellir National Park. In Menntaskólinn í Reykjavík, teachers from both schools discussed the progress of the project and prepared stands for the school’s open day. During the workshops, they learned about the school’s rich history but also got a glimpse of the school’s modern interior while taking part in interesting activities. Teachers had the opportunity to observe lessons in various subjects. They also learned about the differences between the education system in Poland and Iceland. The finale of the project was the presentation of the research results, this time at an open day at Menntaskólinn í Reykjavík school. The project 'Air quality research as a path to knowledge’, funded by the EEA funds, was of great interest to young people, but also to parents and teachers. The participants had the opportunity to present the details of our research to a wider audience. The final day of the project workshop was dedicated to preparing project publications and planning future activities.
