Description of the Experience
My experience in the field of Physics has been very instructive at the same time entertaining and fun.
Practice Hooke's law

This practice was the first thing we did in physics. This subject I really like.
We took two springs; a shorter one than the other and therefore less elastic to add weights to get find its spring constant represented by the letter K. We find out full stretch on the vertical axis, measuring with a tape measure previously positioned parallel to the minimum height of the spring upright. The spring was hanging from a hook so that adding weights, depending on the spring, the spring stretches a given value differ from 0. Knowing the value of which varies as the stretch of the spring and the weight was applied, we can isolate the K and find the spring constant of the spring.


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.
