Description of the Experience
Teachers and students face difficulties when dealing with science while learning or teaching it. Science offers a lot of information which given in very abstract concepts. I
have always tried to start from enjoyable simple things: experiments which open doors to students. Experiments also build up relationships between teachers and students.
Ask students to dissolve 4 heaping tablespoons of Epsom salts in one cup of beer. Ask them to observe what is happening. This will foam. Then let the mixture set for at least 30 minutes. The salt crystals will partially dissolve. Ask students to apply it to a window with a brush, or a tissue. Ask students to observe what happens when the mixture dries and also have a look at it the next day. Mixture dries to form beautiful crystals. This looks even better the next day, and lasts a long time. It can be washed off with water and a cloth and is easily reapplied.

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.
