Gas Connect Austria and Book Club send schoolkids on journey of discovery

Gas Connect Austria has inspired over 500 young researchers to explore the history of their local areas. Over the past few weeks, museum educators have visited a large number of Lower Austrian primary schools, with the support of the Austrian Book Club for Young People and experts from the Federal Office for the Care of Monuments. The aim of the initiative was to encourage school pupils to investigate the history of their local community. Children were introduced to the fascinating world of archaeology, local history and heritage conservation in fun workshops held at each school. It was then up to the pupils to go out and uncover the exciting past of their own towns and villages. Their research projects are being showcased on the websites of the various schools and local communities.
