Fulston Manor School is very excited to have been awarded funding for a second ERASMUS+ project and is working alongside schools in Germany, Romania and Crete in a project entitled BioPlastics: The Future of Food Packaging? Students have designed, created and marketed biodegradable alternatives to food packaging from scratch, collaborating in mixed international groups to raise awareness of- and find solutions to- the plastics crisis facing our world. During each visit to a partner country families from the communities involved host our students for a week, providing food, lodging and recreational opportunities.
What will our students get out of it?
- Possibility of going on a heavily subsidised and possibly even free visit to a foreign country staying in the home of one of the host country's students
- Experience another culture and visit sites rarely visited by tourists
- Friendships with students from across Europe
- Develop an understanding in sustainable technology and the plastics crisis facing our planet
- Develop foreign language skills
- An excellent addition to any C.V.
