1st Maritime Makerspace (Sustainability) - Life Below Water

02/09/2024 - 04/09/2024 | Cologne, Germany | teff Event

Are you a student, lecturer or teacher? Are you interested in learning more about sustainability, particularly the SDG “Life Below Water”? Would you like to engage in an international exchange with studentes, lecturers, and teachers from other countries?

Rhine Station in Cologne

Then come and join us for our 1st teff Maritime Makerspace @Rhine Station Cologne!

During our Makerspace, you will have the opportunity to:

  • creatively engage with the SDG “Life Below Water”,
  • develop your own teaching units in a group,
  • practically implement these units with a group of students – and learn how to pass on your knowledge to your pupils at home!

Exploring hybrid learning opportunities

The Makerspace will be a hybrid 7-day (2+3+2) learning activity, meaning that:

  • the first 2 days will take place online via Zoom (dates will be announced soon),
  • followed by 3 days (Monday, 2nd – Wednesday, 04th September 2024) in Cologne at the Rhine Station (here, a German school class will also be involved to promote exchange between participants and pupils),
  • and concluding with 2 days online via Zoom for the follow-up (dates will be announced soon).

Expenses for travel and accomodation are covered for 1-2 participants from the following institutions (teff partners):

  • University of Florence
  • University of Helsinki
  • Linnaeus University
  • Kungshögsskolan Ljungby School & Lacko Internationella Grundskola AB
  • KU Leuven
  • KOGEKA School
  • University of Murcia
  • University of Nantes
  • Oslo Metropolitan University
  • Saxion University of Applied Sciences
  • Utrecht University
  • Academie Tien

If you belong to another institution, you can of course still participate, but will need to finance your stay in and travels to Cologne yourself.

Of course, we are also looking forward to students from the University of Cologne and colleagues from schools in and around Cologne!

We are looking forward to welcoming you on “our” river Rhine!
