In our project Social entrepreunership we tried to make two 3D tools for visually handicapped people.
We colaborated with students 4th grade students. We made two specific tables.
The first one it was a table for teaching of reading for blind persons. Our students worked in Tinkercad program – online free software. The table of reading for blind persons contains particular signs of Roman alphabet and corresponding grid of six points organized in the form of rectangle 2×3 centimetres. On each of these six points there is o there is not the protruding spot (embossed). This is the way how to encode 64 alphabetical signs. The blind reader senses these signs by touch. The second tool is a table of various shapes (e. g. rectangle, star, circle, etc.) The blind person can to identify these shapes. We donated these printed tables to blind citizens in our town.
Our students liked this activity and we would like to make a memory game called “pexeso“ for blind people.
The Startup MY Jewery Company was established by the students’ group from the third grade of the study programme Business academy. First it was very difficult to find a product or service which they wanted to start running their business with. After long-term discussions they decided in making necklaces from minerals. Once they chose the product they easily created the name of the company and its logo. “MY” means “WE” in English and they want to show that they are a good team.
At the beginning they created the Canvas model for their company, focusing mainly on the product and marketing communication. As they are a small company they prefer to promote the products on the Instagram. They had to also think about the company structure and divide the positions.
They prepared one big campaign before Christmas and now they are dealing with a new one – for the Valentine’s day. They also take orders on their Instagram page, so if you are interested, have a look at my_jacz.

The Startup “Catch me” CatchDreams Decoration Company was made by the students of class 3.A in colaboration with the JA Program.
The students have make a program
JA Czech Republic offers to secondary schools many programmes that last one school year or less according to possibilities of schools. The school pays a fee.
JA Student Company is a unique training programme for the Czech secondary schools. Our school is involved in this programme.
Our JA company is called Catch me. It is producing manufactury. First students decide what product they wanted to do, what name and logo their company will have, who the general manager of the company will be, what everyone’s role in the company will be.
Then they wrote Partnership agreement and formed 4 main departments: Marketing and PR department, Financial department, Production department and HR department.
They are producing dream catchers. They worked for 2 hours per week.
Working in the company gave big benefit to students – they became a better school team, they obtained new experience, they could try to start-up their own small business, they found easy and funny ways of learning new things. On the other side there are also some problems in the company – sometimes it isnecessary to work „overtime“ – it means after school schedule, there is the risk of financial loss, the selling of products is sometimes very difficult.
At the end of their one year business the students will decide how to divide the profit. They are going to give 10 percent of the profit to charity.

In October we had an opportunity to spend a week in Budapest. From our school we went four students and three teachers. First of all we checked in to the school resident or guest family and met other participants of project. During the week everybody had to show their presentations about their country, school and project about social entrepreneurship. We visited Buda Castle, Graphisoft and Balaton. While we were getting to know Budapest we saw some interesting places, had a tour in Parliament and had a boat ride on the Danube. With help of Hungarian students, we saw the Heroes’ Square and a beautiful park. We attended Escape room and we were also walking through the centre of Budapest at night. Our trip ended with visit to company called Prezi. The whole week was unforgettable; we had fun and found new friends.
On October 12, 2018, a unique ErasmusDays event took place in Nový Jičín Square.
This event, full of fun, games and competitions, was organized on Friday, October 12, 2018 by teachers and students of Mendel High School on the occasion of a European-wide #ErasmusDays campaign.
The purpose of the campaign is to promote the international Erasmus + educational projects that our school has been proud to implement since the beginnings of 2014.
Adventure with Erasmus, as we called the whole event, offered elementary school pupils and the general public the opportunity to get information about all of our international activities, including information about our DesignThinking project: Social Entrepreneurship between European Schools.
The main project information (goals, resources, seminars, participating schools …) and photographs from meetings already held were published here. As pupils of the 9th grade classes in Nový Jičín and the surrounding area visited us during the day, we prepared interesting competitions and games on financial literacy – we for example compared the average gross wage with lunch costs in the country’s restaurant and wage transfer using the exchange course.
Most of the pupils liked the task in which they had to recognize the mother tongues of participants of the project e.g. Romanian, Hungarian or Spanish.
