Inventors of the Light

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.

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.
