Departments of the EU Virtual School are running a cross-curricular project with aviation as the focus. The History and D and T departments have produced material. The first draft of the contribution of the chemistry department can be found HERE

For my part I will be working on some online resources on the social and environmental impact of the aviation industry.

Investigating the field of aviation one soon notices how enormous the amount of material is on aviation history. I Therefore will stick to the Dutch contribution. If anyone knows sites on the internet concerning Dutch aviation, please mail me.
Next week: the story of the first Dutch Aviator to die in an aircrash, Clemens van Maasdijk +1910
Problems I have finding materials concerning KLM on the web. Anyone got a hint?

Indeed, our students study 2 books ("Vol de Nuit" and "Le Petit Prince") written by the famous French writer and pilot : Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and we thought that they could produce their own websites about:
- Saint-Ex & Latécoère
- La disparition mystérieuse de Saint-Ex (the mysterious vanishing of Saint-Ex) --> this can be linked with our Humanities Department (since one of the few hypotheses was that Saint-Ex has been shot by the Germans)
And maybe other topics! If you are a teacher of MFL and are interested in joining in, giving us some ideas or useful links, translating some work in other languages, or whatever else, then do contact us.
So far, our students are working from this website

I will also look into the history of SAAB - from it's foundation in 1937 till today...

As a member of the VS Biology department perhaps I can encourage the whole department to participate.
I think I can also add an aspect of aviation into my Human Impact on Ecosystems topic in IB Biology at the International School of Toulouse. We have excellent links in the aviation industry, as you may know. We are connected to Airbus in Toulouse. In the summer term I will have some student tested resources to add. I'd be especially interested if my students could also contribute.
Perhaps we can knock heads together Nick.

Toulouse is the European capital of aviation and since 1974, the home of Airbus. The school is a 'wholly owned subsidiary' of the company.
For the IST this a longterm, cross-curricular project, initially timetabled around the development and launch of the new Airbus A380
At first the IST History, Geography and French departments will be formally involved, with other departments joining us later. My role is to help co-ordinate this and also to organise the first 'Aviation Project' meeting on behalf of the European Virtual School D&T department in Toulouse from 18-21 March, 2004.
