Activities carried out during the first year of the project November 2012 June 2013 5. We have designed a Questionnaire for our students related to Icarus legend and the theme of our partnership. They answered these questions in November, before starting the activities, and our intention is to use it at the end of the partnership as well, with the same students, to be able to measure the impact of the project and how much their knowledge has improved.

Nonverbal communication in human being-alien meeting Nonverbal communication is the easiest way for us to communicate with people who don't speak our language. Gestures, mimics, looks and facial expressions don't involve verbal communication, but it may help us communicate even with aliens came from the outer space - this is the message of our students who tried to act out their meeting with some aliens. Teachers Ana-Maria Tanase and Bogdan Petrache helped them prepare this activity. The video made during this activity can be seen at the following link: 14.
