The European Chain Reaction is a science/art project and competition which challenges primary schools across Europe to create, film and upload a "Rube-Goldberg/Robert Storm Petersen-like" chain reaction. Through the contest, children learn more about science and computers in a fun way and in the end all submitted chain videos are merged into a big cross-border European chain reaction.
About the MEDEA2020 Project
MEDEA2020 Project logo
The MEDEA Organising Committee submitted a proposal to the European Commission's Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP), Key Activity 4 (Dissemination and exploitation of results of the programme) which was approved in 2010. This proposal for a project entitled "MEDEA2020" builds on and further exploits the work of the MEDEA Awards. MEDEA2020 will expand the reach of the awards to include Italian, Spanish and Polish speaking practitioners. MEDEA2020 will also organise a series of workshops in educational media production in France, Italy, Spain, Poland and Ireland. Finally the new project will support the organisation of an annual large international conference on Media & Learning.
