SkyLight – a Global Science Opera is an ICT-based international creative education project within the Write a Science Opera (WASO) initiative and the EU Comenius Project “Implementing Creative Startegies into Science Teaching (CREAT-It)”. SkyLight has been endorsed by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) as an official project of the International Year of Light 2015 (IYL2015).
During 2015, students from schools in 28 countries within the Galileo Teacher Training Programme will collaborate to create and perform a Science Opera inspired by Cosmic Light together via ICT tools, providing a platform for both creative science learning as well as cross-border friendship and cooperation. During SkyLight, students from the various countries will participate in a Science Opera by two distinct methods, with approximately half the countries participating by each method: Light (participating through the ICOE app developed by the Royal Danish Opera and the Malmø Opera) and Sound (participating through performance of music on various instruments).
The performance of SkyLight will take place in October, 2015 to coincide with the final conference of the CREAT-IT project.
