Czech Italian Practice – CZIP: Czech students experience in Sicily!

computer graphics and photography sector

From the 22th of September till the 6th of October Eprojectconsult team organized Czech Italian Practice project, realized within the framework of Mobility IVT of the Leonardo da Vinci program. 14 students and 2 teachers from The Secondary School of Electrical Engineering, Pardubice, Karla IV. 13 took part in this interesting project. Participants spent two weeks in Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto, in Sicily.

The project consisted of working in local companies which deal with computer graphics and photography. During the project students had the opportunity to improve their skills in this domain. At the end of the project each of them made a final product of his internship: for example, students who worked in Grafica Idea, the company which deals with T-shirts design and printing, created their own T-shirts. The others made logos for Wedding Fair and B&B, some brochures and leaflets, other students built and designed a website. At the end of their stay, participants created a short documentary about how did they spend their internship in Sicily and about what did they learn.

Cultural Programme

At the weekends they had the opportunity to explore beauty of Sicily: they visited Taormina and they took part in the traditional Sicilian event which concerns the harvesting of wine grapes in Jalari Park Museum.  Traditional music, some pasta and wine made this evening really unforgettable!
