Description of the Experience
Physics I do not really like, because sometimes do not understand some lessons and are too difficult and also because we have too few laboratory activities.
Also the laboratory experiments are difficult, but at least are interesting and from which we can learn more.
I remember one of the experiments I did at physics, in which I experienced thermal expansion of a liquid. This experiment impressed and pleased me very much. After this experiment we noticed how the water column with potassium permanganate climb and then goes down. First down, because, for the first time, the Erlenmeyer heats dilating, and so leaves the space to go down, but immediately after the water warms up quickly in colorful glass tube.
The materials used for the experiment was: Petri dish, Erlenmeyer flask, rubber stopper, hole, orifice tube glass capillary water with potassium parchment.


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.
