Last week, six of our sixth form students visited Athens in Greece to work on the Erasmus Lost in Space project.
The exciting Erasmus project is designed to enable students to explore different aspects of astronomy alongside students from Greece, France, Spain, Croatia and Italy.
As well as learning about approaches to astronomy over time and in different countries, our students also explored many of the tourist attractions in Athens. These included the Acropolis, the Museum of Ancient Greek Technology and the Panathenaic Stadium, built in 330BC and the site of the first Olympics.
This is the first of six different weeks of activities spread over the next two years. This is another fantastic opportunity for students and means we will be able to send approximately 1 in 3 of our sixth formers on a FREE foreign study visit over the next eighteen months. Yet another benefit of post-16 study at Teesdale School!
Watch this space for details of the next visit later this year and for how to get involved when we host the last leg of the project in 2020.
