During the project day, pupils will learn the most important terms from business, economics and computer science.

Project days at Vladislav Vančura Elementary School

In the beginning, the students are divided into teams to represent the newly established companies and each of them is assigned an important role, for instance as a company director, production manager or marketing manager. Then our mentors provide pupils with all the necesarry fundamental information in the form of presentation. Afterwards, all responsibility passes to the pupils, who have to put their company into operation. The young entrepreneurs have to allocate their investment wisely, come up with a name and logo and choose the proper branch for their organisation. In order to start manufacturing their product, the pupils have to correctly build and program a robot using a tablet app, which has to pass a technical inspection by the our mentors. At the end, each team’s results are evaluated and the students present their company to the others.

From the perspective of the teacher Mgr. Monika Trachtová

I rate all project days very positively. The project day  inspired  creativity in the pupils. In line with the activities offered, pupils showed positive emotions, were able to critically evaluate their ideas and tried out roles in which they could apply their skills. The whole day felt very balanced and I found it beneficial for pupils to work in teams that you have formed. I liked the reflective part at the end when the pupils presented their realised ideas to others. Thank you.
