The educational model represents in a very interesting way the concept of capillary action. I think it would be good for my students to see such type of explanation about the topic. It would be even better if I make them do the experiment shown. When they participate and do things themselves they always remember the knowledge more easily.


Dissemination Seminar in Florence

31 October 2015 The seminar has been held in ITIS “A. Meucci” one of the schools involved within Goerudio project activities. Its main aim was to promote the results of the project toward a broad sample of stakeholders even overcrossing the number of people directly involved in the production of project outcomes. This purpose has been totally achieved especially thanks to the participation of students and teachers coming from different schools or from other classes instead of those ones directly involved within the project activities.
