ALL THE DISEASE BEGINS IN THE GUT
SUMMARY OF THE PROJECT
is a quote attributed to the Ancient Greek physician Hippocrates nearly 2500 years ago.

The beneficial effects of PROBIOTIC FOODS on human health and nutrition are increasingly recognized by health professions so we want to make the benefits of probiotics and prebiotic foodsknown by students, colleagues and as many people as possible around us BECAUSE studies besides others show that:
a link between the consumption of foods rich in probiotics and fewer exams' anxiety to students.
probiotics can help reduce the number of days of school missed due to illness by boosting immune system
The project is addressed to teachers who teach science subjects (biology, chemistry, food technology, dietetics, etc) in high schools (vocational or general) and students who are studying in order to obtain the qualification.
Selection criteria for teachers: - Communication skills in English language: minimum level B1; - Computer skills; - Experience in teaching biology or food-related subjects or English; - Training and certification in project topics; - Experience and availability to support project activities - Involvement in extracurricular activities in eTwinning projects related to food, nutrition and health. Selection criteria for students: - aged 15 to 19 years old - Communication skills in English language: minimum level A2; - Computer skills; - Academic performances, involvement in extracurricular activities in eTwinning projects related to food, nutrition and health; - Availability to support project activities
In order to include efforts by students themselves
we'll work on this project by using STEMeducation activities such as laboratory experiments and fermentation workshopswhich we believe will also improve our students' competences.
** surveys will be conducted about the consumption of probiotics, prebiotics and synbiotics at the beginning and at the end of the project.* presentations about our immune system and what can be done to boost immunesystem*interviews with nutritionists and doctors and they will record these interviews *a website with announcements, news, activities about our project* promotion materials* animations to make the subject intriguing for their peers,* postersand shoot videos,* role-plays,* science and biology experiments, food investigating and producttesting,* food products preparation (kefir, yogurt, cheese, pickles, etc..).
* promote a healthy lifestyle * promote creativity and innovation in the learning of contents inspecialized disciplines in the fields of 1) The science behind fermented foods and the chemical reaction thatoccurs during fermentation,2) Technology by researching how has fermentation evolved over timethrough scientific discoveries, 3) Engineering by developing the way thatfermenting food affect the environment through energy consumptionor natural resource and 4) Mathematics throughresearch where wewill investigate students’ thoughts and knowledge on the impact ofprobiotics andcross-correlation with their alimentary behavior.* raise awareness among students about technology, health andnutrition topics, nutrition rules for ahealthy life,* improve teachers' STEM pedagogy by innovating, sharing, discussingand comparing themethodologies* raise awareness of European citizenship and also European values * improve students' communication skills and other competencies suchas language and digital skills,problem-solving skills, social andintercultural competences* embrace diversity, explore traditions in relation to food conservationand fermentation * introduce Project Based Learning and Life Skills Program
