Sweden – Day 4

Thursday was a day full of workshops and presentations. First both students and teachers presented about renewable energy sources. Teachers had a CLIL workshop about creating models of hydroelectric power stations while students had a workshop about surviving an energy blackout. Our headmistress informed teachers about the Swedish school system. Afterward, we visited Retuna Recycling Mall, well known for only having shops focused on Secondhand. After lunch, we visited Ekeby Wetland (Sweden’s largest landscaped wetland) and finished with a guided tour of Eskilstuna’s bio-energy power plant.

In the evening, host families, students, and teachers from Sweden organized a party for all participants of the project. It was a night full of joy, dance, laughter and also tears when the students realized that the week was almost over.
