The first year of the GIGS project ended with a week long student conference in Poland. This brought together the Challenge Creators from all four countries, two or three of their teachers and the representatives from the other institutions in the partnership. The week is fully documented on the main website. It was vitally important to use this occasion to capture the views of the students and teachers who had worked together for the previous 6 - 9 months on their Global STEM Challenges. This was done through a survey at the end of the event (see the tab - surveys and interviews) but also through a series of interviews filmed at the centre. Some of these interviews will be used as stimulus material in the project's online course but we also expect them to be useful to teachers and teacher trainers planning to introduce elements of our methodologies into their own training programmes or as background prior to work in the classroom.
