OUTREACH

VOLCANO-SCHOOL / GEO-SCHULE


Pre-school "Haus für Kinder St. Sebastian" in Dettelbach, Germany, is running the project "Floating Rock" under supervision of Manuela Welter since March 2019.

The kids use Youtube, get their questions answered by email and received soundfiles for their audio pen. Some of the content is known by heart by now. The kindergarden kids were invited by the local school to present their project and received very positive response.

Manuela Welter presented the project at the Bavarian Meeting for 'model kindergardens' in June 2019.
