Climate change – Natural Disasters, Civil protection”.
Upon reservation of the educational programme, the NHMC provides the school with digital learning support materials, to be used by the class before and after the programme.
The overall goals of the programme are the active participation of students in the learning process, the reinforcement of knowledge with the help of exploration and discovery, and learning in a pleasant and fun way.
By the end of the programme, students will have understood that a natural phenomenon is a natural process that does not always lead to disaster. In addition, they will have become familiar with the phenomenon of the earthquake and they will have learnt to prepare and cope with the dangers that often accompany it.
