European Key Fob Cube
The basic idea for a product was the combination of a puzzle and a key fob.
This idea was more and more specified and then moulded as a key fob cube with six different clickable
sides where each side displays the logo of the partner school as well as an outline of the home country.
As the mould inserts have been produced individually by the partners, it was absolutely necessary to keep
to the fixed measurements in order to provide a prefect fit.
Our "European Key Fob Cube" was produced by using a modern injection mould, which was built by all involved partners.
Each of the six partners delivered the necessary inserts with the several logos and the outlines of the countries.
During one moulding cycle the cavities of the inserts were filled by hot liquid plastic material.
After cooling and ejecting out of the mould a complete cube with the six different side parts of the partners was produced.
The total of the injection mould was drawn in a group by the partners. As soon as the technical drawings of the
side parts had been finished, the electrodes and the inserts could be designed according to the given shrinkages.
The upgrade of the already existing homepage offers detailed
information about the working progress of the partnership.
In a forum, communication among all partners is supported.
Based on a moodle platform, a multi-lingual visual technical
dictionary was prepared containing the specific technical terms
of moulding and plastics technology. Every participant had provided several terms and phrases from a specific category.
Online Final Test
In a final test, which was offered online based on Moodle,
the trainees´ knowledge on the field of moulding and
plastics technology could be tested and rated. Every participant had provided suitable questions and answers from
one specific category.
A rather comprehensive collection of minutes,
project plans, technical drawings, operation charts
offer an impressive documentary of the partnership on DVD. Apart from this, all pictures and movies are implied as well.
During the meeting in Portugal, the local TV station TrofaTV
attended the different steps of project work.
In the movie, the mayor of the city of Trofa, Mrs Lima is shown as well when spending an evening at a Karaoke show
with the project partners.
Different newspapers were interested in our project
and reported in the local pages. The partners provided journalists
with information material. Moreover, they organized press conferences.
Two students of the HTL St. Pölten had our LEONARDO partnership as topic for their thesis.
Finally they drew up a scientific
documentation of our project activities.
As the noble damsel Rosemarie turned back time the participants were enabled to take part in medieval life as a knight.
Apart from the culinary highlights, it was a very entertaining and surprising way of learning about life in former times.
The highlight of this event was the accolade of our project coordinator as a knight
called "Heinz, the Fearnought".
