Group of Fridrichsgymnasium (Germany)

Here we are - class 8c

We are the ones to continue the Comenius project of our Friedrichgymnasium and looking forward to the following tasks.

In our class there are 26 pupils, 11 girls and 15 boys. We have pupils interested in music, literature, animals, sports, but also in science and many other things.

Hope to see the other teams soon.

Group of Dobre Miasto (Poland)

Our group contains of 13 students. We are 16-17 years old. We attend Technical Schools in Dobre Miasto. We speak German on the primary level, we learn it fourth year. We speak English better than German (but not perfect), because we learn it longer. Our group gets on well and we can cooperate really well with each other. We all like sports. The interests of our group are football, volleyball, dancing, swimming and running. We like meeting new people, we are really communicative and we have a good sense of humour. We are very pleased to participate on this project and we have always dreamed of going to the Netherlands.

Water Analysis at School (Group 8)

Drinking water is the most controlled food, because we can´t drink water without the knowledge of the compounds, solved in it. The analytic of different parameters is very important. On friday we analysed different parameters in water samples Iron, Copper, Nitrit, Phosphate, Aluminium, ph, Nitrat, Cloride, Oxygen.
Water from two different pounds around the KGS Wittmund were taken and analysed. For all parameter. All samples showed normal values less the recommended values. Although the analysed drinking water samples shoved good values. 

Störtebekerpark and Radio Jade (Group 7)

The group green was in two little groups.
One of the group analized the water of the Störtebekerpark. They depth of the water and it was 65 cm. Then they took some water from the ditch and put it in a beaker. And they took 5 mm and they put it in the tube. They put an indicator in the tube and then they had to wait for 10 or 15 minutes that depends on the indicator. They waited 10 minutes and saw the change from the color of the water in a color table. If the color was green we knew how much mg/L there was in the water. they annalized the following ions  in the water (nitrate, phosphates, oxygen, copper, chlorid). The group think that it wasn´t difficult, was easy, and we learnt how to work in group I how clean and precisly.
The other group, about 5 persons, went to the radio studio that is called “Radio Jade”. Then they were interview by a reporter about things that we are doing in the project of the Euro Water. Then the reporter show to us the studio and we saw the different rooms of the studio. He said to us that In this radio they put in the evening music from 21:00 to 1:00. And he said that in the morning the radio put more move music to get up the people and then in the afternoon they talk about serious problems and they put more slower music.
An other thing is that in the radio are a lot of levels, for example are the young people, the volunteers, the journalist, the reporters, and the boss. Then he said that they have reporters all around the world. And when they interview someone they can not interview him or her, more than 3 minutes and a half because the people could be bored. He said that if you want to work in a radio station you have to know about that and you have to like it because you´re all the day in a room, and very often alone.
The group thinks that it was very interesting and it was a good experience. They saw how is the work in a radio station, in this case a public one. 

Sewage Carolinensiel (Group 6)

On Friday morning we went to Sewage Carolinensiel to see how they clean the water to recycle it.
We divided the group in two parts.
One started looking outside how the machines clean the water. The process has four different parts; in the first one the water comes from the cities and the machine divides the liquid from the solid parts (like toilet paper). After, in the second part, the water is put in tanks and machines which pump bacterias in the water to clean it. In the third part the water goes to another tank in which the rubbish go down and the clean water stays above and it flows out of the tank and into the small natural lake. It stays in the lake where are fish living in the water, as long as the fish can live in the water it has a good quality. The last step is to pump the water in the sea.
The another part of the group started in the laboratory to look the bacterias with a very expensive microscopy. After they also compare the results of the chemical examination that we did with two different water probes.
When the groups were finished, they switched the programs.
