The third LTTA meeting was organized from 15th to 19th October 2018 in the Project “Thunderstorms and Thunderbolts in Teaching Strategies and Meteorology”, number 2017-1-RO01-KA219-037264. The meeting was attended by the partners from Romania, Slovenia, France and Portugal.

The program was prepared for five days and included learning/teaching/training activities for the students as well as the teachers involved in the project “Thunderstorms and Thunderbolts in Teaching Strategies and Meteorology”.

On the first day a small welcoming and school facilities presentation was organized at Zespół Szkół w Pilicy. Polish students gave a lecture on the climate of Poland which was followed by a guided walk around the area. In order to get to know Pilica better Polish students made short presentations of the main tourist attractions in the town. The nearby ruins of medieval castle in Smoleń were visited to show the panorama of the substantial part of region from the top of its tower in addition to weather phenomena which are the feature of Poland. During the hours spent at school students from each participating country had an opportunity to show their earlier prepared presentations on a tourist region with the explanation how weather can influence it.

On the second day a geology lecture was organized to present the changes of climate and weather and their influence on plants, animals, earth and stone. The students could admire different rock formations collected by geologists and later in the natural form in Głęboka cave in Podlesice. After that field geology workshops were organized so the participants of the LTTA could dig and look for fossils themselves.

The third day was dedicated to a visit to the main tourist center of the region – Kraków. At a short visit in the City Hall students were at a lecture on the development and significance of tourist services based on the example of the city of Kraków. Then a professional guide took the whole group for a guided walk around the city’ s main tourist attractions.

On the fourth day of the visit the whole group went to The Climatology Department of The Silesia University in Sosnowiec. The students visited two weather stations at the university. The lecturers from the university passed them practical knowledge concerning weather phenomena and the ways of predicting weather. The participants could use some of the equipment themselves in order to fill in special work sheets.

The second part of the day was spent in GUIDO coal mine – specially preserved museum where students could learn about mining techniques used in the old days. Coal was and still is the major energy source in Poland which has an influence on air pollution and weather changes in the region as well as in the whole country.

The last day started with all the participants working on their evaluation of LTTA in Poland. We went through planning activities for the future meeting in France.

The students and teachers assessed the organization and implementation of LTTA as an excellent 70% or quite well 30% and as a very valuable experience that they would be happy to repeat again. Our school experienced an unforgettable week with the guests from different cultures which gave us new, valuable experiences.
