- Mentoring concept

Trained mentors from Slovakia, Czech Republik, Switzerland, Turkey and Pforzheim worked together in international teams during the two teacher-student laboratory workshops as responsible lecturers and pass on their knowledge of theory and experimental practice to the participants.

- Panel discussion concept

The new established panel discussion concept at the end of the workshops was a review with evaluation of the experiment results and their discussions done by students of countries that did not send any mentors. This new system of discussion round was perfectly executed for increasing the activity of the participants.
