Children from Oaks Park High School in Oaks Lane and IIS Giordano Bruno School in Perugia enjoyed a two-day session as part of Go Green Europe - which focuses on green chemistry.

The Year 12 students worked together to discuss and present ideas on nanotechnology and innovative energy resources during the sessions.

Kelly Hon, team leader for science at Oaks Park, said: “The visit was very successful, we all had a wonderful few days.

“The students from both countries communicated very well and worked collaboratively on the activities. The teachers found it very instructive to compare schools and lessons.”

Oaks Park students have already visited Austria, Holland and Italy as part of Go Green Europe, part of the Comenius Project, which aims to develop knowledge and understanding of European cultures and languages in young people.

The Italian students gave a talk about nanotechnology and discussed a school and university based project in Perugia that aims to introduce use of Hydrogen fuel instead of fossil fuels.

The English students responded with a presentation about PavGen, a potential way of generating energy simply by walking on kinetic pavements that turn footsteps into electricity.
