Dr. Giedrė StrakšienDr. Giedre Straksiene , a researcher in Communication between Art and Science at Klaipeda University in Lithuania, motivated by her interest in the CREAT-IT pedagogical methods and her ambition to explore their implementation in Lithuanian schools, traveled to Stord Haugesund University College in Norway to find out more about CREAT-IT project and its practices. In her point of view, innovative teaching/learning methods are strongly needed in the contemporary knowledge-based society and WASO is an example of a practice which tries to enlighten creativity as a common impulse between sciences and arts. The purpose of her trip was to deepen her knowledge and competences with regard to analysing the communication process between science and art, and scientists and artists. The research was designed in the form of interviews with Norwegian scientists and artists, observation in school (Bergen), and  video material which has been created by Write a Science Opera team at Sagvåg School at Stord in Norway.
