Liberec, North Bohemia, Feb 8 (CTK) – The Czech science centre iQLandia has joined the Art&Science informal education project within which about 1,000 Czech, German and Polish secondary school students will learn to communicate and cooperate in fulfilling tasks, Petr Desensky, from iQLandia, said on Thursday.

The students from the three neighbouring countries will meet in one-week courses in which they are to acquire knowledge and skills in the artistic field as well as in natural sciences and technology.

The courses will take place in the Hillersche Villa in Grosshennersdorf, Germany, the Dom Trzech Kultur house in Niedamirow, Poland, and iQLandia in Liberec. The project will last for three years.

The communication language will mostly be English, however, interpreters will be available to the students.

Desensky said iQLandia wants to focus on the creation of applied art within the project.

The iQLandia scientific centre is next to the iQpark for smaller children. In 2017, over 420,000 people visited iQLandia and more than 100,000 visited the iQPark.

The town of Liberec is situated in a mountainous area close to the borders with Poland and Germany.
