Description of the Experience
I did not understand what exactly voltage is and how it is an indicator of energy. But the teacher used a very simple example.
She explained voltage is what the electron gives to the things which it goes through. If the electron is a ball and you're battery and throw the ball, you give it energy and it moves forward. We have the following important things to consider: 1) the harder you throw the ball, the more energy you give it (in this case, is the energy of movement, but when it comes to real electron and a battery - it's electricity) 2) while the ball flies somewhere, it can go through different materials such as paper and if you throw it harder, even wood, glass, metal. Once the ball goes through them, it begins to run at a slower speed because going through the material it has lost part of its energy.


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.
