The initiative of the Faculty of Chemistry of the University of Lodz expands the student's view on chemistry science. They see that interest on chemistry have not only their teachers but also other scientists and faculty staff. It widened their opinion about the subject.
I plan to invite the guest lecturers for my chemistry classes to prevent routine at lessons.


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.
