Caused by the Global Corona Pandemic all our international activities have to be cancelled in 2020 and 2021.
To keep in touch with our international partner schools we arranged online meetings.
European online Erasmus meetings were focused on the topic of the current project in genetic and epigenetic. Student mentors held presentations to the audit of round about 100 participants and two scientists supported students with their special knowledge about the topic.
Last week January 2022 we try to meet physical again in Vienna. The goal of the Vienna meeting is to conduct a lab workshop for the evaluation of developed experiments and to finalize teaching units about DNA methylation and histone assembling as project results.
To keep in touch with our Chinese friends we established Sino-German online meetings on the long run. 20 students from both sides were matched as pen pals. Each month we conduct one online conference with this closed group. Topics of meetings were e. g. school life, history, hometown etc. presented alternating by students.
In the American-German exchange program responsible teachers from both schools are in an intensive touch by facetime and of course next physical student exchange will take place as soon as the virus allows it, hopefully in summer 2022 again.
