Description of the Experience
Some of geological concepts are often difficult to understand for our students. Being able to perform a field trip and observe the structures and geological formations "in situ" is very helpful and improves understanding of geological phenomena.

In the itinerary different stops are made in order to identify the following structures:
- Identify discrepancies and topographic relief.
- Identify river terraces
- Recognize the deposit of sedimentary materials in different layers and understand the phenomenon of transgressions and regressions
- Identify a diapir
- Find hyacinth gems in gypsum.
- Search pyrite nodules in limestone
- Recognize and classify fault
- Identify fossils as belemnites and ammonites ...
At each of the stop students complete activities that allows them to study the structure they are observing and consolidate the knowledge acquired in the classroom .

Activity is practical and allows to apply geological knowledge acquired. Students are surprised to discover that geology knowledge is useful to interpret their environment, which may motivate them to increase their interest in science.

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.
