For the very first time, Polish CoL (Community of Learners) met at full strength in April 2014. The Community consists of ten teachers from various Polish towns, three educators, three researchers and one member of the Jagiellonian University Museum staff.

In the school year 2013/2014 three meetings were organized, and each of them was dedicated to a separate topic: presentation of the Project and its goals, rules, and communication channels; how to design an interactive exhibit; what nanoscience means. After each meeting an evaluation survey was conducted, based on a PMI questionnaire. The participants were asked about the strong and weak points of the meeting, what was known and unknown to them, what was easy and difficult, positive and negative, as well as interesting and boring. The results were analyzed, discussed and presented in the framework of THE 6th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE RESEARCH IN DIDACTICS OF THE SCIENCES in Krakow on June 25–27, 2014. 

CoL has developed its website on Facebook. The participants present there, for example, photos from various interactive exhibitions that they have visited when being on holidays or trips, including a QR code that may be found in the University main building. 

In September, the CoL participants had an opportunity to get acquainted with one of the forms of science and nonformal education promotion, which is the Researchers Night. In October, they listened to the report concerning the work carried out by their Greek colleagues, the CoL meeting of whom Iwona Maciejowska had an opportunity to observe when meeting the FP7 SAILS project partners. The entire meeting in November took place in the University chemical laboratory, where the teachers and scientists carried out the experiments that they proposed to be used in the “Catalysis in Environmental Protection” module developed by them. As part of the discussion on the RRI aspect, the CoL members watched a short video prepared by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, entitled “Zawód naukowiec” (Profession: Scientist), in which scientists of various ages, specializing in different fields of science, showed their work and got acquainted with The European Charter for Researchers.
