The second teaching learning activity for students and teachers in the Erasmus+ project Eurostronomia took place from 16th – 22nd September 2018, uniting 33 young astronomy enthusiasts from Germany, France, Portugal, Scotland, Romania and Slovenia. Three teachers and eight students from St. Stanislav’s (5 from Teh Diocesan Classical Gynasium and 3 from Alojzij Šštar Primary School) took part: Tadeja Drašler, Martin Čokl, Matej Urbančič, Špela Plevel, Eva Jeraj, Ana Julija Prešeren, Eva Jocif, Filip Marinšek, Zala Vintar, Sara Lesar and Alenka Battelino. We participated in numerous amazing workshops, listened to fabulous speakers (e.g. prof. Martin Hendry, LIGO), watched highly interesting documentaries and movies on latest discoveries in the field of astronomy, danced Ceilidh, tried Scottish food, experienced a real Scottish storm and so much more. Mr Čokl had a workshop on constructing Mars Rover and Mrs Battelino had a workshop on East-West Space Race.

It was another wonderful experience working in the inspiring environment of good friends. We all appreciated wonderful hospitality and the perfect job done by the organizing team at Wellington School. We all look forward to our next project meeting which will take place in Macedonia between 6th – 11th July, 2019. /Alenka Battelino, project coordinator/
