Description of the Experience
It is not easy to teach science; I had my difficult moments. I felt very frustrated: I have always asked my colleagues what we should do in order to get our messages across efficiently. It has been hard work but working together has helped us a lot. Doing experiments ensures the success of a lesson. It stirs interest, engages students and makes everything memorable. When teaching electricity for instance I used the lemon circuit experiment. I couldn’t ever have imagined that it would have had such an impact on my students. They first considered it a sort of miracle but soon they became aware that they were the creators of the miracle. Needless to say all students in our school had to do this experiment to try their own hand and see for themselves. I have become very popular and as a result my subject is considered to be very interesting in our school. My students don’t skip my classes and they look forward to new experiments.

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.
