Nature is unique and at the same time offers countless possibilities and alternatives. Every discovery in science and technology has an analogue in nature. Our children are exclusively related to the benefits of modern technology and cannot imagine life without them. It's great to see that lemon can be a generator, not just a sour fruit. This is an example of a practice that will grab both young and elder students. You can even practice skills and dexterity to connect the components. Very captivating experience!


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.
