Trip to Basel as part of the STEAM project

Basel, the city of art, architecture, colours, museums…the city of the school trip of year 13.

To start with, imagine twenty-six 16-17-year-old students walking around the city of Basel, trying to find their way to the meeting point in a kind of treasure hunt… The Basel Foxtrail could really be a fun experience if we hadn’t gotten lost several times on our way. Nevertheless, discovering the city with Foxtrail was a good opportunity to realize how beautiful Basel is.

While roaming around the city, students started working on the STEAM project of the trip: designing a brand new object of a specific colour in groups of 3. First of all, we had to take photographs of objects in town of our chosen colour and broad theme. Pink clothes, yellow lines, red emotions, white transportation, purple shapes…

To get some ideas for creating the futuristic object, students visited the world-renowned Vitra Design museum close by in Germany as well as the Basel Kunstmuseum the next day. The two of them were very different and, without a doubt, very inspiring!

Brainstorming, inventing, discussing, agreeing or disagreeing – all the students were into the creation of their new object! Some ideas were brilliant and we are all looking forward to the presentations of the objects.

As the final relaxing activity, we spent the last day in the biggest Zoo of Switzerland, just before taking the train back home. 

In summary, this was honestly a very inspiring trip and our teachers did their best to make it interesting for us, and succeeded. We got the chance to see the beautiful sights in Basel in a fun, but still academic way and got to bond with other classmates. 

A big Thank you to Mrs. Colin, Mrs. Bauer, Mr. Roberts and Mr. Younes for accompanying us on this wonderful trip.
