Partner meeting in Pisa

In May the EELLSS partners met in Pisa. The main aim was to exchange on the state of affairs in the ongoing learning projects in the partners schools and on drafting the programme for the final event that will take place on 05./06.10.2017 in Kassel.
It was great to hear that the soil-related learning projects have brought up new ideas and initiated activities that would not have taken place without the project!

Despite all the efforts of the team … the tower is still leaning!

Meeting in Tilburg

EELLSS partners held their next meeting in Tilburg, Netherlands. During the meeting, current developments and challenges in the field of soil science research were discussed. Partners presented their expertise and ideas  on how to generate different didactical frameworks on soil science case studies.

After the meeting, a short excursion to Regte Heide was organised. The Regte Heide, a natural area, offers different soil profiles and thus creates different opportunities for measures and analysis. During the excursion soil profiles were taken and the different layers were discussed.
