The project involved cooperation of two groups of young people from Poland and Spain between 13 and 15 years old. The project partners were two schools - Społeczne Gimnazjum nr 4 STO in Poznań and DOCEN S.A. Escola Lleó XIII- which have an extended experience in non-formal education, are open to innovations and willing to cooperate on an international level.

The objectives of the project were as follows: -more frequent use of ICT: eTwinning, Skype, Prezi, Stop Motion, Facebook, Instagram, schools' websites, software for creating films, -a more practical approach to science: more interest into science and natural phenomena from students,-a practical use of foreign languages: Spanish and English and more motivated students wanting to learn foreign languages, -popularisation of entrepreneurship among young people not only in national groups but especially in international groups as an answer to the demands of the contemporary world, -conscious and creative thinking of the involved students, -promotion of peer education, -more involvement of students in the educational process, -promotion of non-formal education -development of tools, methods, programmes enabling to raise qualifications of the teachers working with the youth (the use of ICT, innovative pedagogical approach, exchange of good practices), -international cooperation among schools resulting in the exchange of good practices,-creation of a map by students with the best places in Poland and Spain for learning science through experience, -creation of commercials advertising the places to the partner school, -creation of board games with the use of the skills and knowledge gained during the project.

The number of the directly involved participants is: 40 (36 young people and 4 teachers/coaches), indirectly involved participants: 1000.

The project involved the following activities: - the work on places promoting Science in Poland and Spain, - the creation of maps with the best places promoting Science; - the creation of commercials advertising the places, -the visits to the places by both partners, -the creation of board games concerning Science and the use of the gained knowledge. The project also involved much work in national groups, meetings on Skype, TwinSpace, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, publication of the results of the project online - school's websites, Facebook accounts, Instagram

The impact of the project was divided into three categories:
a) impact on participants
- greater knowledge about scientific achievements of both countries,
- greater cultural awareness,
- improvement of communication in a foreign language,
- better group work skills,
- greater self-confidence,
- improvement of entrepreneurial skills
- Long-lasting relationships between the youth and the youth’s families
b) impact on participating organisations
-improvement of methodological skills (CLIL - Content and Language Integrated Learning) of all teachers within the participating schools in informal education,
- greater and more efficient use of ICT tools during classes and in informal education,
- interest in further international cooperation,
- reconsideration/rearrangement of organisation of informal education at the schools, - gained experience in project management,
- exchange of good practices between two participating institutions
c) impact on target groups
- improvement of methodology and use of ICT tools among the participants of a workshop/conference for teachers and the youth,
- interest of other schools in participation in European projects,
- use of ideas from the booklet with good practices in informal education among teachers (staff at both schools, conference visitors, European teachers in general - internet users of dissemination platform) - the booklet was finally not used and the aforementioned information was presented during numerous conferences for parents, students, school boards and on the schools’ websites and Facebook profiles. The decision was made due to the number of recipients of the information - there was a much greater number of recipients via the aforementioned channels than via the booklet.

Longer term benefits resulting from the project:
- greater knowledge about scientific achievements of both countries,
- greater cultural awareness,
- improvement of communication in a foreign language, - better group work skills, - greater self-confidence of participants,
- experience in project management,
- long-lasting friendships between participants and families of participants
- improvement of methodological skills of all teachers within the participating schools and workshop/conference attendants (CLIL)
- improvement of presentations skills before different types of publicity (school board, teachers, parents, peers)
- attitudes of tolerance and openness towards other cultures,
- improvement in exam results in scientific subjects (gimnazjum mock exam results have improved among the participants - December 2016: 56,8%, December 2017: 73%)
- parent awareness of learning processes and child's needs within informal education, hence greater support for child and school (shown in the results of surveys among parents)
- greater knowledge about EU funding and European partnership possibilities within Erasmus+ (shown in the results of surveys among students and parents)
