Project plan and working approach
The project consists of nature based art classes, a visit to the quarry and nature education lessons.. The pupils will work in groups on the research question: 'What do you want to do with the ENCI quarry?' The project team will consist of an artist/teacher, educational staff from the Museum of Natural History, CNME and Natuurmonumenten.
Primary schools in Maastricht will receive the information via a publicity campaign. Three schools will be selected to work on the subject: ‘Design your own ENCI quarry on Mount Saint Peter’. The member of the Museum educational staff will start with a lesson. This will be followed by a visit to the ENCI quarry by the pupils. After an introduction the pupils will enter the quarry accompanied by guides. The artist/teacher will take this even further by creating a large scale model to give the design a substantial presence. The project will be rounded off by a presentation of the various groups' designs. A professional jury will be appointed to assess the quarry designs and award the three prizes. The grand finale will take place in the Museum of Natural History with an exhibition of the pupils' plans, presented in tandem with the official designs. The ‘show’ will run for three months.
The project will be extended during the 2016 - 2017 school year, which means that, provided sufficient financial support is made available, all the primary schools in Maastricht will be able to participate.
