The participants were students aged 14-17, teachers and staff of partner schools, IT and scientific labs assistants and experts.
The students were chosen from various classes according to the skills required to carry out the various steps of the project. On this way, each student had the chance to give his/her active contribution to the teamwork. We also included students that need to be re-motivated and stimulated in activities that are not traditionally present in the curricula so to discourage an eventual early school leaving.
As for the mobilities, students were selected according to their language level (English will be the main language for the project) among those with a higher scientific and literary competence in the project related areas. However, we also work with younger pupils who do research and build different instruments with the help of the first.
