Description of the event: 
We had two hours in the school lecture hall, meeting students from 11th grade. I've already been to this institute during this semester, but the teachers and I decided to split the students in two meetings to make the conversation with them more direct.

First hour we started with a quick Power Point presentation, about EU. Erasmus project was introduced, starting with some general hystory and then with a direct experience of a student who went to Norway. People has been captivated, starting a conversation. Then a girl from ST.E.P. ESN Pavia described her experience in Brazil when she was in high school. Since the students were still far from university (and erasmus programme), we thought useful to speak about these kind of under-18 programmes that students could do.

During second hour our erasmus students talked to the public, letting guess where they were from and then telling about their Italian experience. A Student from Gambia had 10 minutes to speak about his native country, helping himself with a Power Point presentation.
Students were invited to make questions and, as soon the shyness disappeared, the atmosphere became relaxed, interesting and amusing. I think that the event helped the students with an educational experience.
