Description of the Experience
Working in groups is fun for most students, when trying to solve problems, do experiments, and work on projects with other students. The social interaction can get them excited about things in the classroom and students can motivate one another to reach a goal. Teachers need to ensure that groups are balanced and fair, however, so that some students aren’t doing more work than others.

You can quickly and easily make a set of glycerin soaps for everybody to wash their hands after labs. The equipment you need for the basic recipe includes: a microwave, a microwave safe dish, a hot pad for handling the hot dish, a block of glycerin soap, food coloring, essential oils (for scented soap), a mold for the soap.
Preparing the mix is very easy if you are making glycerin soap. Simply cut the block of glycerin into pieces that will fit into your microwave save container, then melt it in the microwave until the entire batch has melted. Add fragrance and/or color.

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.
