On 4 February 2016, Klaipėda Gedminų Pre-gymnasium hosted a regional event – Educational Project Fair
organized by English teachers Kristina Rudelienė and Anton Petrovskij. 55 projects were presented by students,
teachers, trainers and other staff from 30 educational institutions representing Klaipėda, Klaipėda district, 
Šilutė district and Plungė. The projects covered different levels of activity – school, national and international, 
including Erasmus+, Lifelong Learning, eTwinning, Nordplus, the EU Structural Funds. 
All projects have been highly effective and significantly enriched the process of education and school life in general.
 
Participants of the fair showed their designed products and explained how they have been used after the projects
ended. The participants shared useful experience, joyful mood, and creative ideas for project dissemination. The
teachers and the students discussed the factors important for the success of the project and the impact of
the project on the school community. The participants also focused on practical issues, such as how to look for
funds and partners, how to complete application forms and how to manage the process of project implementation.
 
The presentations and discussions were highly appreciated by the representatives of the Department of
Education and Culture of Klaipėda municipality, Teachers` Center for Culture and Education and
Pedagogical Psychological Service. Probably the best feedback of the event was the impressions of the
participants recorded on the evaluation wall, including questions such as “Will we be able to participate
again next year?” The prizes for the “Project Fair” participants were established by the Education Exchanges
Support Foundation, "Eurobiuras" and "Edukateka".
 
The majority of the international projects presented at the "Project Fair" focused on integrated activities and
materials for the CLIL approach. Klaipėda Gedminai Pre-gymnasium team presented the following
