Between the 3rd and 7th of February 2020, the Technical College „Mircea Cristea” (Romania) carried out a series of activities within the LIVINGRIVER project. The activities consisted of interactive lessons about “Aquatic Ecosystems” held with the students from the 9th grade, and interactive lessons on “Impact of pollution on the environment” and “Excess humidity” with the students from the 10th grade.
Between the 2ndand 6thof March 2020, the students of the 10th class from the Technical College “Mircea Cristea” Brasov have carried out activities of information and preparation of the necessary materials for the practical part of the LIVINGRIVER project.
The students checked the condition of the leaves collected and dried for the project, and prepared the nets that will be installed on the river. The students received information about the places where the nets will be installed and details about the process of assessing the degree of river pollution.
During this period, when schools are closed and students are forced to stay in their homes, many of them have become nostalgic. They remembered the trips and vacations of the past, spent near some rivers.

n October 2020, the two Romanian schools (Grigore Antipa College and Mircea Cristea College) carried out the field activities within the project, the leaf decomposition activity.
Helped by the teachers, the students fixed the nets with alder leaves (Alnus glutinosa) in the Graft River and determined the physico-chemical indicators of water quality (pH, temperature, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, nitrates, phosphates).
The two schools conducted experiments in different locations of Graft River.
