We want to celebrate The International Year of Creation and Innovation in a project entitled “Inventors of the Light”. We intend to stimulate children’s imagination and offer them the possibility of revealing their scientific and especially artistic skills. We think that LIGHT is a very generous theme. We can establish as topics the great inventors (or “inventors”) of light: gods (God, Zeus, Apollo), stars, animals and insects (the fly light, for instance), prehistoric man, modern scientists (Edison), artists whose works are somehow connected to the idea of light.
On each topic, our students may use in order to express their ideas and feelings paintings, graphics, original or translated poems, simple scientific references, short plays, short movies or anything else.
By doing all these, they will enforce their abilities in IT. Art on the computer is one of their choices.
This project is supposed to offer the spectacle of student’s intelligence, sensitivity and creativity.
THE LIGHT BEHIND THE RHYME

To The Star (by Mihai Eminescu)
Up to the star that's just appeared The journey's long, and so For thousand years its light careered To reach us here, below.
It may have faded on its way Of old, in blue spheres bright Though only now its shining ray Unfolds to this our sight.
The image of the star that died Comes slowly to the fore: It used to be when it would hide - We see what is no more.
And likewise, while our yearning dove Died in the deepest night, The light of the extinguished love Still follows us in flight.
