Milles et une pistes… y dos detectives (1001 clues and two detectives) is an award–winning project; it won a 2016 eTwinning National Prize for the 12-15 years old age category. This project is integrated in the Foreign Language subject area and it involved students of ages between 13-14 years old; it was the perfect tool for both teachers and students to get to know each other, to collaborate, and carry out an exchange visit at the end of the school year. The working methodology is original and it constantly fostered student collaboration, involvement and creativity; it boasts careful planning, clear task and role allocation, and the use of a wide range of adequate digital tools for the students’ age. The project methodology is active, the activities foster creativity and are aimed at knowing the partners and constantly interacting with them; all of this makes the students the true project protagonists. Juana Hermoso, who is the project coordinator in the IES Ítaca school, describes the experience of implementing this experience in her school.

We’d like to present the project “Chemistry everywhere” (Química hasta en la sopa), winner of the 2016 European prize in the Spanish Language category, sponsored by the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport. A good example in the Secondary Education stage of collaborative work combining science and cooking. The pupils, in international groups, exchange recipes from their national gastronomy and narrate and film personal experiences in preparing these dishes. The most original thing about the project is that they also add a chemistry problem related to the recipe in the exchange. So partners must solve scientific enigma by applying science principles to dishes. Finally they share results in a common digital book. The founding members of the project, Ángela Lupo (Liceo Linguístico Isabella D’Este, Tivoli, Italy) and Carmen Hernández (Lycée Chrestien de Troyes, Troyes, France), tell us how they conceived the project idea and the impact on each school.
