Objective of the Project

POinTS = Progressive Options in Technology and Science was a mutual cooperation project between Gymnázium Teplice from the Czech Republic and Numedal Videregaende skole from Norway, in which teachers and students from both countries searched for connections between current scientific knowledge and its development in historical context. They used a wide range of ICT tools and an e-learning platform in order to deal with challenging tasks from different fields of science and technology. Another aim was to point out that scientific knowledge, as we perceive it nowadays, is related to revolutionary findings from the past, and therefore we should understand science and technology as branches continuously in progress. Project goals were focused on both teachers and students through five learning modules related to natural science and history and were designed for the target group of children aged 15 - 17 years. The participants gained knowledge in various science issues based on teamwork activities.
