Description of the Experience
At one of the lessons of science we discussed how the eye functions. Our teacher explained that the lens of the eye focuses the rays of light passing through it and makes the image created in the eye is reduced and rotated. It is just the brain that displays an appropriate picture of reality.
To prove this phenomenon teacher instructed us to do the experiment with a magnifying glass, because it works like a lens of our eye. We set up a magnifying glass at a distance of 1 meter from the window and held white card behind it. It turned out that image from behind the window appeared on a piece of paper. It was actually reduced and reversed. This experience helped me to understand how the human eye works.


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.
