## Breaking The Code: a Pathway to Success

This is an Erasmus Plus KA2 School to School Project which involves 5 Countries from Italy , Greece, Cyprus, Turkey and Spain Further information in progress

### This page  present all the activities performed during the 1st Students Meeting of the project in Chania

1) Basic Principles of Computer Programming Through Mathematics

In this activity we’ll show you, step by step, how we can make small programs-algorithms of mathematical problems, such as solving simple equations, Pythagorean Theorem etc.

In this activity, the computer is a “student” who should say exactly the steps you need to follow to give us the solution. During the course of this process we want to investigate how students organize their thinking, when faced with a problem, what is the sequence of steps to get to the solution and what restrictions should be put at each step.

2)ROBOTICS: EDUCATIONAL APPLICATION IN PHYSICS.

Abstract: In this activity we will attempt to organize and carry out an interdisciplinary educational project combining physics with robotic applications. More specifically, we will construct an experimental device that will accurately measure the period of oscillation of a pendulum. The recorded measurements will be used among other, to calculate the gravitational acceleration of the earth. For the design and implementation of this project we will use Lego’s Mindstorm educational robot. Students will explore the possibilities of robots and they will use them towards the organization and realization of this project.

3) Studying Chemical Reactions By Using Innovative Teaching Resources

Abstract :The goal of this activity is a deeper understanding of the mechanisms involved in chemical reactions. Students will test their ability to do chemical reactions first theoretically and then experimentally.  Possible mistakes to both ways will be taken into account in order to explain to them how to avoid them.

4) Chemistry of the Stones

Abstract:

The stone that surround us are not only the lithosphere material but also the material for our buildings. We are trying to examine the chemistry of stones, with the reactions that they give to water and acid compounds.

First of all we gather 4 student groups.Every group will choose one from the stones.They will examine the chemical reaction that the rocks give to water and acid.They will observe whether it can be used for construction and it's resistance or not by this reaction.

5) 1st. OLIMPIC TRADITIONAL GAMES (5 countries/5 great games):

Most of the traditional games and sports have already disappeared and those that are surviving are threatened of imminent disappearance and extinction under the combined effect of globalization and harmonization of the rich diversity of world sport heritage.

In this regard, we would like to propose an activity that involves history, multiculturalism, sport, physical activity and competition, as well as creating a learning environment for the promotion and development of traditional sports and games.

6) Alternative Energy Resources and Mechanisms of Conversion

This activity will be centered on the implementation of energy conversion from theory to practice. Students will create different models of energy in order to draw awareness to alternative energy resources and their significance to our planet.

7) Physics Bloopers Race

Five videos from five different Movies. Ten international young teams. Zero or more physics errors inside each video. Five minutes to find them. Five minutes to write down the best explanation of the detected blooper.  One winner!
