Description of the Experience
When we first started chemistry and flickered through the textbook I got really scared. There were lots of formulas and definitions and very abstract terms. I didn’t understand a thing. It was our teacher who made it very accessible through a lot of experiments. We usually have a sort of ritual whenever we enter the lab: we put on our white coat, take our seats and listen to the instructions which tell us how to do the experiments. These are just the guidelines; we have to observe everything and put down everything we notice; we have our expectations and predictions. We discuss what is happening and draw our own conclusions. Sometimes our expectations are very different from what is really happening. If you put a piece of ice into a glass of warm water, what are your expectations? Do you think that the ice will melt and spill over? No the level of water stays the same (the water from the ice doesn’t expand)!


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.
