Description of the Experience
I have noticed that most students complain about science as being too hard and too abstract but nobody complains about experiments, which are also part of science. It goes without saying that experiments are fun, appealing and they all stir our imagination and curiosity. Have you ever seen a light ball (a ping pong ball) balanced in the air stream of a hair dryer? It is Bernoulli's Principle by which the pressure in the fast-moving air stream is less than the pressure of the surrounding quiet air. If the ball strays from the air stream, the surrounding higher pressure air tends to push it back.


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.
