Description of the Experience
Science is interesting as it teaches us lots of things about life. I like it because we learn how to make things. Once we even made a parachute out of nothing: plastic bag, pieces of string and a small stone acting as a weight. We cut the plastic bag into an octagon and made eight holes near each edge of the octagon. We tied the edges to the stone and then we dropped the parachute from a small height. It didn’t get down very fast. Our parachute came down very slowly to the ground as the weight (the stone) pulled down on the strings and opened up a large surface area of material that used air resistance to slow it down.


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.
