Food and knowledge about it is very important. In class we usually don't have time to discuss this topic thoroughly and since it's an interesting topic for students we usually plan some extracurricular activities. The lesson plan is interesting and I will try it in my practice.


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.
