Week of the Child

Friday, 7 October 2022, concluded the ‘Week of the Child’, which is celebrated all across Slovenia every first week in October. On this particular day, our students spent a part of their lessons playing and participating in various fun activities, because learning can take on different forms, and playing is one of them.

4M Science Day – The Tropical House

The students first got to know the tenrec, centipede, and stickleback in the Tropical House. They found out who their prey and predators are, their typical visual characteristics, as well as the connections between animals and plants. The students could stroke and even hold the animals in their hands. Later we saw chinchillas, porpoises, spiders, frogs, monkeys, snakes, and other exotic animals. We also entered the room with lemurs and saw the environment in which they lived.
We spent a pleasant day in the company of tropical animals and the environment where they live.

7M Science Day – Robotics

On September 15 Grade 7 students visited The Jožef Stefan Institute, the Centre for Technology Transfer and Innovation, whose primary task is enabling and facilitating the transfer of technologies and innovations developed at the Jožef Stefan Institute into business. Students visited several different presentations talking about matter, robotics, biology, chemistry, physics, intelligence, systems, materials and the environment. In school, students created their own basic robot hand using Lego bricks, a motor and a touch or coloured sensor. The hand created can serve multiple purposes: massager, grabber, comber, cleaner, etc. Some students even recorded their own commercial for their innovative product.
