Description of the Experience
Lessons in physics are difficult, but when there is an experiment and an easy one, we quickly learn the lesson. In order to learn about Archimedes force and especially when bodies float and when sink, we did the experiment with an egg. It is put a raw egg in a glass of water and then it is emptied salt in the water until the egg is started to rise up. The density of the fluid is an important factor for the bodies floating. In the beginning of the lesson when our teacher brought out the glass full with water and the egg we started laughing, but soon after that we came to the terms that simple equipment is possible to visualize the phenomena. The same was with Pascal law. The teacher asked us to do the experiment at home and then at school everyone to tell what he/she had observed.


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.
