Description of the Experience
The experience consisted understand that atoms were arranged to form crystals. To be organized only time, space and needed rest.
Salt dissolved in hot water and then left in a crystallizer where we put a stick to help the formation of crystals. The experiment was repeated with sulfate and placed in another crystallizer.
We did not see the atoms spent a few days but when square salt crystals and rhombic sulfate crystals were formed
I liked it because it was shown that the material crystallizes in different ways and I began to believe that it was made of atoms.


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.
