• Photo club Open or Close

    For the school year 2018-2019 the School of European Education – Heraklion is organizing weakly sessions of a Students Photo Club.

    During the Photo Club meetings, the students will be introduced to the work of famous photographers and come in contact with the world of modern and contemporary photography.

    Additionally, students will have the opportunity to study a variety of photobooks and through hands-on experience learn about the importance of organizing their photographic work in thematic series, as well as sequencing their images.

    The main goals of the photography club are to help the students to express themselves through the medium of photography and to be able to develop a critical eye on photography, either as future photographers themselves or just as image consumers.

    At the end of the school year there will be a presentation of a students’ group project with the topic "European Identity".

  • Math club Open or Close

    In the spirit of stability and evolution of supplementary educational guidelines at SEEH (which are not covered from the daily teaching program) and taking advantage last year’s deposit, the school’s mathematicians suggest the foundation of Math club for the present school year 2018-2019.

    Fundamental and primitive goal of Math club is to emphasize and develop the mathematical thinking and ability of our school’s pupils along with the understanding of the organic link between mathematics and other scientific areas as well as everyday life in all aspects. Additional goals are the integration among pupils in order to strengthen the bonds between them and the enhancement of European identity for pupils and school.

    We are mainly aiming to study two subjects:

    1. Units of measurements
      Studying the historic evolution of units of measurements, their birth, foundation and differentiation. Grand discoveries, new thoughts, new scientific areas. Scientists names. Mathematical influence, social consequences.
    2. Mathematical proof
      The meaning of proof. Necessity and consequence. Forms of proof. Contradictions and paradoxes. Logic, philosophy, order and disorder.

     Math club meetings will last two hours (after the daily program) and every two weeks. The meeting day shall be decided along with the pupils involved. Besides the mainly educational aspect of the meetings we shall be given the opportunity to approach the former mentioned subjects in more ways as: creations, experiential games, rhetoric games, watching relative movies and videos. At the end of the school year, if the circumstances allow it, Mathclub shall present its work to the school community.

    The central idea of the project aims to fight the lack of scientific-mathematical skills in children between 9 and 12 years, through the approach to the study of astronomy and observation of the sky. The direct observation of celestial phenomena, the collection of data and the related analysis in order to formulate hypotheses to be verified on the field will all be elements that will bring pupils very close to the scientific method and the history of scientific discoveries.
