Description of the Experience
At the science lesson we often have different experiences or demonstrations to support what we learn in theory. It's a very good way, because I can remember easier the subject. Our teacher has shown us at one of the lessons that fire needs air to burn all the time. Teacher lit two candles, but one of them covered with jar. After some time, when the air in the jar was exhausted, the flame was extinguished. The second candle was burning all the time.
Now I know that the combustion process is possible thanks to oxygen present in the air and thanks to this lesson I will always remember it.


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.
