Description of the Experience
An experience that I think has been the most interesting is the one of the body in free fall. This experiment requires a stopwatch, a device for free-fall and a steel ball in order to measure indirectly the values acceleration of gravity by calculating the physical laws that governed this phenomenon.
Thanks to this experiment I’ve gained a success, not only for the assessment but because I was able to learn and understand why I applied those formulas.
I think that to achieve such a success we should not restrict it only to learn normal physical laws or concepts but we must try to know how to apply them even outside the school.


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.
