Final meeting in Wodzisław

On 2 June 2011, in the assembly hall of Powiatowe Centrum Ustawiczne, a conference was held to recapitulate the two years' work of students and teachers of Zespół Szkół Zawodowych and PCKU in the Leonardo da Vinci “Building The Common Future” partner project.


ZSZ was the coordinator of the whole project with PCKU and secondary technical schools from Italy and Turkey as partners. The schools gained funding for all activities from the Leonardo da Vinci project.

The project's main task was to build 3 mechatronics devices designed, constructed and programmed by students from secondary schools from Wodzisław, Genoa and Kayseri. PCKU teachers carried out advisory actions concerning technical issues and conducted training on the Solid Edge software.

The conference was inaugurated with the Vice Chairman of Powiat Wodzisławski – Dariusz Prus's speech. The Head of the Education Department – Edyta Glenc presented the vocational education system situation in Powiat Wodzisławski and the changes it has undergone in recent years. Dr. inż. Adam Heyduk from Politechnika Śląska in Gliwice presented a lecture on mechatronics as the interdisciplinary science.

Mirosław Michalewski – the project coordinator – presented the results of the two-year cooperation. The Principal of the Italian school – Giovanni Vallebona – reviewed the benefits of international cooperation that affect students and schools. Yakup Yuksel – the representative of the Kayseri school – described the Turkish vocational education system.


After the speeches, the invited guests attended the presentation of the final products conducted by the teachers responsible for the mechatronics aspects of the project: Artur Hausman, Michał Weczerek and Wiesław Pawlica. The device designed by Zespół Szkół Zawodowych moves objects from one place to another. The Italian product is a kind of plotter and the Turkish device is a sorter distinguishing between different colours of given objects.

All the devices were built of components and controllers used in the construction of equipment for industrial facilities. That is how the students had the opportunity to get familiar with solutions they will encounter in their future work – says the project coordinator, Mirosław Michalewski – It is also worth noting that our model won the second place at the Third International Robotic Tournament in the Free style category.

At the end of the conference, the principals of PCKU and ZSZ: Jan Kopczyński and Danuta Mielańczyk presented the guests from all partner schools with certificates and small gifts.
