Description Consortium official language was English, but Slovenian and Croatian partners use benefit of mutual understanding, especially on teachers’ level. On first summer school we notify certain language barrier in student population, so they prefer to use English in mutual Croat-Slovenian communication. On second summer school we notify that in mixed group students in solving problem mode usually overcome language gaps. This was also visible during nonofficial meetings in free time.
Target group Teachers. Students
First Summer School brought together 52 students (VII, VIII Primary and secondary school) from Slovenia (19) and Croatia (33). 46 teachers, professors, university teachers, and technical engineers were present during Summer School in our improvised laboratory in Rabac. On the side-lines of the school held a series of meetings and consultations with experts not only from various fields, but also from different countries.
Demonstrating workshops and laboratories were done day by day aside each other. The various educational and motivational methods were discussed and new ideas and "different opinions" were then implemented in the next year of Summer School 2013. Summer school demonstrates that laboratory approach is more fruitful approach to teaching very difficult subjects like electronics.
