Welcome to web site of the Science and Education Centre Višnjan
25th Višnjan’s summer came to its end
This summer through Višnjan’s residential camps and schools SECV hosted over 80 students from 3rd grade elementary school to high school graduates from all across Croatia, as well as from abroad (USA, Canada, Italy, Serbia). To ensure all intellectual, technical, logistical and other student’s needs are met more than 40 mentors, camp/school leaders, assistants and lecturers from different institutions across the world were present at site.
Students had an opportunity to work on interdisciplinary projects from traditional “Introduction to Scientific Method” for youngest ones, through Design of educational systems; Black and White Photography to Meteor Streams (CMM); Geophysical measurements of ionosphere; Submarine construction; Simulation of Mars’s condition and others. Link between mentors, students and lecturers might be described as passion towards work they are doing. Check out some pictures taken during this Višnjan Summer.
Looking forward to next meeting!
