MEdIES coordinator, Prof. Michael Scoullos, and the three MEdIES Officers, Iro Alampei, Vicky Malotidi and Vassilis Psallidas took part in a four-days mission in Malta, to explore the possibilities and specificities of the recently inaugurated National Water Conservation Awareness Centre (named 'Ghajn' in Maltese = water pond) to provide educational programmes for its visitors. Actually, following the 2017 collaboration of MEdIES with Ghajn and GWP-Med to develop four e-games that are played by the students in large touch-screen walls, in 2018 MEdIES has been entrusted to design four hands-on educational programmes, to ‘compliment’ the experience of the touch screen-games.

The main topics that each of the four e-games focus on are: water cycle; water monuments; water utility; and Non-Conventional Water Resources.

During its four day inception mission at the Ghajn Centre, the MEdIES team observed groups of students and adults (experts and teachers) playing the e-games. Focus group discussions were held with all groups, to collect the needed feedback and to identify their needs and expectations for the planned educational programmes.

Following the inception mission, the MEdIES staff will propose four different scenaria, based on the principles of ESD and Museum Education (i.e. to be hands-on, student-centered, playful, inquiry-based, self-reflective, open to interpretation, etc). After agreeing with the Gjahn staff on the main axis of the four scenarios, the MEdIES staff will develop them in detail and revisit Malta to pilot them wit students before the end of 2018. We can't wait!
