Specifically, a 3D virtual reality educational environment will be developed possessing innovative educational infrastructure, and offering immersive and efficient learning opportunities, engaging students in various educational activities, learning scenarios and offering students an attractive, entertaining and efficient way to learn various topics of the challenging domain of physics. The students will have the ability to virtually visit laboratories, perform experiments, explore procedures and phenomena, examine the ways that are conducted and also be guided towards analyzing and explaining them through the scientific method. The virtual educational environment and the laboratories will be designed in a way that supports students to form appropriate mental models of involved concepts, by visualizing them and allowing interactions with the virtual phenomena and processes. When students learn new abstract concepts it is quite hard without appropriate connection to concrete examples.
The project is promoted by the University of Cyprus (CY) and has as partners: University of Patras (GR), Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (IT), Asociatia Centrul de Training European (RO), New Edu n.o. (SK) and Computer Technology Institute & Press Diophantus (GR).

Discover a New Working Field – DISCOVER (LLP/LdV/PAR/2012/RO/065)
Leonardo da Vinci – Partnership
The European Commission published a Renewable Energy Roadmap outlining a long-term strategy in January 2007. It called for a mandatory target of a 20% share of renewable energies in the EU's energy mix by 2020. The target was endorsed by EU leaders in March 2007.Starting from this point, we would like to focus on the cooperation between vocational education and training institutions and the world of work areas in the Europe and involve partners from both sides in order to discover new working fields and employment areas.The project addresses to the teachers, trainers, tutors working in the field of energy and in similar professionals in schools/institutes or in working life institutes and its goal is to have development for the following subjects:
- Searching for the sectors and the job areas related to renewable energy;
- Career guidance, counselling and searching employment opportunities in the sectors of renewable energy sources;
- Integration of skills needs of the labour market into VET;
- Encouraging the usages of the renewable energy sources;
- Environmental protection.
